We have been told by evolutionist for years that oil takes millions of years to be made from decaying biomass and dead dinosaurs. But what they claimed was based soley on age dating methods. It was never tested. So now one campany is able to prove this wrong. But now nature itself is doing the same thing.
The process in which nature does this is called hydrothermal oil. Hydrothermal oil is oil the is produced naturally using black smokers as the heat source. This super heated water, which can be 400 F degree or hotter, is pushed through the biomass that exist in deep oceans. Currently everyday oil is being produced in the California Guaymas Basin as a black smoker (under water volcanic vent) produces enough heat to do this.
Now some might say that water boils at just a little over 200 degrees F. That's true. But when you go under water, every 33 feet you go down. Equals one atmosphere. One atmosphere is 14.7 psi. Anytime you apply pressure to water, the boiling point of it increases. This black smoker is located just a little over 6,000 feet.
- How deep: 6,000 feet
- Pressure: 60 atmospheres (1800inHg or 840 psi).
- Temperature: 300-350Â°C. or 572-662Â°F
- Objects present: Water, black smoker, organic sediments, green algae.
When oil is man made in one day, the temperature is around 500-1000 Â°F.
When oil is made hydrothermally, the tempature is 572-662 Â°F.
Do you see how close the temps are for each process?
When oil is drilled for and found. The pressure is around 3,000-30,000 psi.
When oil is man made, the pressure is around 715 psi.
When oil is hydrothemally made, the pressure is 840 psi.
Do you see that pressure is required, but not as much as how we find it in the ground (drilled for). Now why would the pressure in the ground be so much higher than the other two? The flood.
The flood had to be at least 12 miles of water. This includes the water that was in the deepest seas. So from the top of the highest mountain, to the bottom of the deepest sea. There was 12 miles of water or more. What kind of pressure did that produce?
There is 5,280 feet in a mile. 5,280 times 12 (the least amount of depth of the global flood to cover the highest mountain. No one knows how far above the mountain the water went.) 5280 x 12 = 63360 feet. 63360 feet divided by 33 equals 1920 atmospheres. 1920 x 14.7 = 28,216.2066837 psi. This is near the same pressures that the highest pressure oil wells are found. Around 3/4 of a mile more and you would get 30,000 psi (highest pressure oil wells). So the pressures caused by the flood almost match the highest pressure oil wells.
So the difference between the pressure oil wells are found at, and what the least amount the flood would produce is only 2000 psi (only 3/4 of a mile more of water was needed to match current oil well highest pressures). This maybe very well how high the flood waters went. 3/4 of a mile over the highest mountain.
PETROLEUM-LIKE hydrocarbons have been detected in thermally altered Recent sediments of Guaymas Basin1â€“5 and petroleum-like hydrocarbon impregnations were found in hydrothermal mounds on the sea floor and associated with hydrothermal vent emissions5â€“9. Here we report the evaluation of such a hydrothermal oil, which we find to be similar to conventionally exploited crude oils. Its young geological age (< 5,000 yr, 14C) 10 indicates that a significant fraction of the organic carbon in the oil has completed the transformation from biomass to migrating oil in less than 5,000 years, thus limiting the oil generation, explusion and migration processes to a geologically short timescale. We estimate the generation potential of such hydrothermal oil and discuss its implications to our understanding of the petroleum generation, expulsion and migration mechanisms.

Geologists maintain that most of the oil they pump out of the ground was formed tens and hundreds of millions of years ago from biological debris. But in the Guaymas Basin, in the Gulf of California, the oil seeping out of the sediments is only 4240 years old! Actually, it could be even 500-3000 years younger than that for two reasons: (1) The organic debris that was C-14-dated may have taken many years to become incorporated in the sediments; and (2) The dating may be skewed by older material in the sediments. By subtraction, the oil might be as young as 1240 years!
The picture geologists draw of the Guaymas Basin is that of a spreading center covered by perhaps a half kilometer of sediments. Spewing up from the spreading center is hot water at 300-350Â°C, which "cracks" the organic material in the sediments, converting it into petroleum only 10-30 meters below the sea floor. (Hecht, Jeff; "Youngest Oil Deposit Found below Gulf of California," New Scientist, p. 19, April 6, 1991.)
The newly formed oil dates to over 4,000 years old because the biomass in which it is made from is old. Which shows that material source age affects the final product age.
So what does all this show us?
1) That oil does not take millions of years to form.
2) That evolutionists made these claims soley based on trying to find evidence to support their theory.
3) Even though they have been proven wrong, their claim will take over 100 years to change. Just like the fraud Piltdown man did. After Piltdown man was proven fraud, it took over 100 years to change this in our text books. You see this has been known about since at least since 1991 (Hecht, Jeff; "Youngest Oil Deposit Found below Gulf of California," New Scientist, p. 19, April 6, 1991.).
Want to see this hydrothermal process taking place?
It's the video that says: The young age of the earth.
The footage of this process is 19 minutes and 50 seconds into the video. Video is in windows media format.
It shows the heat from the black smoker going up through the biomass, and droplets of oil coming out the other side.
Even though all of this is scientific, as evolutionists would require the YECs to do. Just watch how it will be rejected anyway.
