Thats the problem in the society we live today, it´s all learned from books and few actually go for the real deal. Do you guys say that for real life experience?

- Oil can not have 500 million years and remain so fresh in the ground today. The long molecules of carbon have would be decomposed. The oil we use is recent, otherwise it would have already volatilized long. This contradicts the appearance of oil reserves, but proves the theory of abiotic oil.
Wrong, the kinetics about oil formation are so slow, that's why we can extract oil formed a long time ago.
By the way, the old fields produces mainly gaz, and in fact it is explained by the fact that during maturating process we go form organic matter to oil, to gaz and then to coal or over burden matter

However, it would be interesting if petroleum can be produced under "natural conditions" in a lab.
That would be a conspiracy against the oil companies who might have advertised all of this "peak oil" to gain profit.
