All my life well from 14 or 15 anyway (44 now) i went by sciences theory on how oil was formed on earth .Which we all know was by microbes that lived
mainly in the oceans in emense amounts .
And I still have no dought much of the oil was create this way.
Then I found this site (many years agaio) and read post talking about oil like it is some process that is created deep under ground .And continues
to this day .
Now this theory doesn't take into account the heat being so high the closer you get to the core of earth that large chains of oil molecules CANNOT
as in a car engine in which the oil is only subject to under 300% f and yet brakes down fairly quickly. This ist self shows that oil could NOT form
even 3 miles down but must instead have migrated to that depth. Mostly by the over riding of the earths plates .
anyway On to the WHY hasn't anyone thought of this?? theory.
Its well know some planets like Neptune have very high constructions of hydrocarbons in there atmosphere and these planets in no way ever had life .
But hydrocarbon oil does not make there only part of oils make up .
Now we all missed something here in earths early stages the atmosphere wasnt oxygen carbon .
But Mathian hydrocarbon's (yea just like Neptune and many other chemicals PULSE the liquid taht was on earth(whole oceans of it)) GET THAT its
WHOLE OCEANS OF LIQUIDS NOT water .
now earth cooled and these gasses combined with the liquid chemicals of the oceans .Again OCEANS FULL of a substance that may very well have been
the main source of earths oil . NOT quite oil yet but well on its way to becoming oil .
so over the next 500 million year the earth plates move around starting the proses of transferring all this early preoil into the depths of earth
finly most of it is buried deep under ground and the volcanic start adding oxygen and water changing earth into teh planet we know today .
now I may be out in left field with this theory but the gulf oil problem and the amounts they are talking about and knowing there is other wells
just as large made me relize there has to be more to oil then just dead microbes .
But knowing it cannot be created deep in the earth WERE did all the rest come from .
also know the earths atmosphere was more like Neptunes with a much warmer planet and many more chemicals and gasses .
Just maybe this theroy hold water? or oil lol lots and lots whole oceans full of oil?
so how about guys and girls maybe most of earths oil was formed from the primitive chemical liquid's and gasses on the planet?
