What do you think about the "abiotic oil" theory?
For those not familiar, we know two confusing facts to be true:
1) Oil is being found at depths far deeper than can be explained by previous life on earth decaying and transforming into oil.
2) Gulf of Mexico and certain Russian oil fields are depleting FAR slower than geologists have predicted, implying that they may be replenished from unknown sources.
Add to this, the fact that we know petroleum can be produced from biosphere in the lab, but obviously, this has not been directly witnessed to happen in nature....only assumed and taught as irrefutable dogma.
