Realize that your sweet little twenty-four year old third-grade teacher was trying to simplify a complex process for you. It's not just freaking
dinosaur bones, it's any organic matter, i.e. the remains of carbon-based lifeforms.
And has anyone ever actually seen inside an oil well? They're ridiculously deep, and chock-full of BLACK matter. It's not like you can feed an
optical cable down there and see something. For all you know, those smoking-gun dinosaur bones you so wish to see are right there in the well.
And you wouldn't find oil "everywhere you find dinosaur bones". Only places under enough thermal and mechanical stress can become oil wells.
If you're going to doubt the peak oil theory, there are a whole lot more intelligent and reasonable arguments than, "but we don't see T-rex
j.h.c, about time there was some actual reasoned information in this silly thread. i'm not saying the concept of the op isn't out of the question.
it's just extremely unlikely and there is zero proof. ZERO. and as with the majority of conspiracy theories, the infrastructure required to secure
this idea would be an absolute impossibility. every oil company, every university, every geologist, biologist, scientist, for that matter, in the
entire world. c'mon.
i might add, the ridiculous idea that someone espoused about expecting to find dinosaur bones in oil (i thought i had heard it all, but nooooo): you
do realize that there wasn't one set of dinosaurs that lived on the earth, died, then supposedly created the world's oil?
like the poster above said, we're talking about a scope that includes the entire planet's living material over millions of millennia.
do you realize that there were dinosaurs on the earth who walked on oil deposits created by living material including previous dinosaurs from millions
of years before them? dinosaurs were on this planet for a long, long time, ok?
and all the dinosaurs, all the ferns, trees, ants, seaweed, ad infinitum ... all that
, which constantly renews, is covered by earth and/or
water and/or rock and creates the pot from which some of it may be heated and pressurized to create fossil fuels over millions of years.
