"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
Oil supposedly formed over millions of years from the breakdown of organic material buried within the earth. However, scientists today are able to produce oil in a matter of minutes in the laboratory.
It takes the right materials and conditions—not the magic of millions of years. The main ingredients are organic material, pressure, heat, and water. This is exactly what the flood would have provided! Lots of water burying tons of organic material, forming huge layers of sediment, creating tremendous pressure, which in turn created great amounts of heat. More recent studies have indicated that oil may even be forming today by non-biotic (abiotic ) methods. According to WorldNetDaily. com “ hydrocarbons are naturally produced on a continual basis throughout the solar system, including within the mantle of the earth. The advocates believe the oil seeps up through bedrock cracks to deposit it in sedimentary rock.
The same goes for coal. Argonne National Laboratories has proven that coal can be formed under natural conditions in a matter of weeks. Some laboratories have even produced it within hours under special conditions.

Most of this article, I was familiar with, but this was a great remind and reinforcement. I have family and friends who quote ‘What scientist’s say…!!’ about “man-made climate change” all the way through what is “good” and “bad” to eat. I don’t rely on, nor always trust scientist. It was scientist “with a consensus” that said the world was flat. They were wrong. Just as wrong as the ‘global baloney’, many Liberal scientists are now pushing.
God also told us it was “all good to eat” — meat, chicken . . . potatoes. I trust what He says and will allow others to put their faith in science, the stars, aliens or themselves, just as long as they don’t try to force us to true God-given knowledge, to accept their views.
But how much better would our lives in America be, if politicians stopped regurgitating “fossil fuels” are bad for the earth, when: #1. they’re not ‘fossil’ fuels and #2. are a God-given natural resource, put here for our use. I’m afraid we’ll never know.
By the way, the Polar Bears are doing just fine. . . .
