So where are the fossils that made all this "fossil fuel"

    Said it before and not for the last time, the space program has killed the notion of "fossil fuels"

    A lake of "Fossil fuel" where there are no fossils.

    You think in all the Solar System, poor little Earth is the only body that needs velicoraptors pressure cooked in geological time to make hydrocarbons?

    There are no such things as "Fossil fuels"

    See?

    Thread rating needs to expand. A final rating of zero stars defined as Ridiculous. Of course this is such a thread.

    [Maybe Frank is simply seeking attention and this is his idea (HIS idea, is that even possible?) of a funny]

    I'll go slow for you, Freddo

    On Earth, methane is classified as a "Fossil fuel" meaning is the byproduct of pressure cooked dinosaurs in geological time.

    Saturn's Moon Titan has a surface temperature of about -290F yet it has lakes, big lakes too, of what is considered "Fossil fuels" on Earth, yet there are no animals on Titan to pressure cook in geological time to make these "Fossil fuels" they're just a natural physical byproduct of chemical and geological activity, no dinos need apply

    So, methane on Titan is not a fossil fuel, but methane on Earth IS a fossil fuel. Earth is EXTREMELY geological active, way more so than Titan and very chemically active, yet we labor under the delusion that methane is a "Fossil fuel"

    Why?

    I thought you might have meant this:

    "In "Black Gold Stranglehold," Jerome Corsi and Craig Smith expose the fraudulent science that has made America so vulnerable: the belief that oil is a fossil fuel and that it is a finite resource. This book reveals the conclusions reached by Dr. Thomas Gold, a professor at Cornell University, in his seminal book "The Deep Hot Biosphere: The Myth of Fossil Fuels" (Copernicus Books, 1998) and accepted by many in the scientific community that oil is not a product of fossils and prehistoric forests but rather the bio-product of a continuing biochemical reaction below the earth's surface that is brought to attainable depths by the centrifugal forces of the earth's rotation."

    Especially enlightening (in your link) was the Garbage Theory wherein Gold suggested the origin of life was an accidental panspermia, the theory says that life on Earth might have spread from a pile of waste products accidentally dumped on Earth long ago by extraterrestrials.[19].

    It makes sense Frank, you're a product of waste and have shit for brains. Methinks Gold was on (to) something, something psychedelic:

    One pill makes you larger And one pill makes you small
    And the ones that mother gives you Don't do anything at all
    Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall

    And if you go chasing rabbits
    And you know you're going to fall
    Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
    Has given you the call
    To call Alice, when she was just small

    When the men on the chessboard get up
    And tell you where to go
    And you've just had some kind of mushroom
    And your mind is moving low

    Go ask Alice, I think she'll know
    When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
    And the white knight is talking backwards
    And the red queen's off with her head
    Remember what the dormouse said
    “Feed your head, feed your head”

    It makes more sense than gamma rays hitting into complex molecules...and improving them (lol). Like saying an asteroid hit by house but instead of damaging it, it added to the deck and put French door from the kitchen leading out to the extended deck
