Where Does Oil Come From?

Published in Answers Research Journal: The Origin of Oil - A Creationist Answer.

John D. Matthews reviews two current theories regarding the origin of oil. The biogenic model (derived from living mattter), and the abiogenic model (built up from primordial matter and therefore not from living matter).

Matthews rejects both of those ideas, and comes up with a new one: theobaric (made by God).

We are therefore left with the distinct possibility that oil and gas were made by God in the Creation Week, and that they moved into their present positions during the biblical Flood.

OK, that was easy enough. Next question?
