Thanks for the link to that book...

I think I'm buying it.

At first, I thought this was a thread about the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Wink

Oil companies and the bureaucrats can bite my ass.

Now that's some of the worst bollocks I've heard yet:

Quote:
Corsi and Smith argue that the deep abiotic theory of oil is a more reliable theory than the fossil fuel theory. It rejects the contention that oil was formed from the remains of plant and animal life that died millions of years ago. Instead, they believe in Thomas Gold's argument that oil is abiotic: "a primordial material that the earth forms and exudes on a continual basis" and is "pushed upward toward the earth's surface by the intense pressures of the earth's core and the influence of the centrifugal force that the earth exerted upon the specific gravity of oil as a fluid substance."

Hmm... let me guess, God puts all that carbon and hydrogen inside Mother Earth so she can make oil from them, for us to use happily ever after?

I heard the authors on George Noory's show last night while driving home from work - I'll sometimes check his show out since the nutjobs he brings on are usually entertaining.

The book sounds interesting, but from what I heard last night these guys were just batshit crazy.

Well, there are certain regenerative petroleum pockets...that's not batshit crazy.

I don't buy it all, but there totally is a misinformation campaign about oil for decades. That much is certain.

Anything promoted by a web site like worldnetdaily.com would obviously have to promote a theory other than "fossil fuels." Fossil fuels can't exist if the world is only 6,000 years old, after all...  Yeah sure

Why couldn't fossil fuels have been "intelligently designed?"  Wink
