The Chemistry of Oil-What Is Oil Made Up Of?

After watching the gushing oil video of the massive oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico, and looking at some of the pictures, I began to wonder what oil was made up of. So I did a search and came across an article, The Chemistry of Oil. I wonder how many people are aware that oil is actually a breakdown of human, animal and plant matter and blood that came about from all those humans, animals and plants that died in the Biblical great flood of Noah’s time? With the American Education System being "dumbed down" by design over the last 30 or more years, and revisionists having taken over the text books in American schools, I doubt too many people are aware of this fact.

I spoke to a good friend about this and he told me he learned this in high school science class years ago. Probably not too many people are aware of this today, because Biblical history as it relates to the earth and science is not taught in high school anymore. So unless you are an inquisitive person like me, you probably would not know what oil is made up of and its orgins.

The Institute For Creation Research, in their article on The Chemistry of Oil-Expanded by Flood Geology, explains it this way:

Christians, in particular, should be concerned about origins because the study of "beginnings" always brings us back to God's history book, the Bible, for resolution. The chemistry of oil strongly suggests that it was formed rapidly from the remains of plant and animal matter. Oil probably originates in sedimentary rocks which were originally deposited by moving water. This is exactly what we would expect from the year-long Flood of Noah's day. A very reasonable model of petrogenesis can be based on the assumption that most of the oil and gas deposits of our day date from the worldwide Flood of about 2500 B.C., or about 1600 years after Creation.
  • "Because of evolutionary bias, many petroleum geologists think of crude oil forming from mostly plant material. While more research needs to be done, it seems that crude oil porphyrins could, just as well, be the decayed remains of blood."

  1. You might find this interesting in regards to your post...

    Revelation 16:3 (NIV)

    3The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead man, and every living thing in the sea died.

  2. Yes, I have been pondering upon that verse for some time now and I did mention it in a post before this one

    Is this a foretaste of what is to come? The oil is gushing out as like that of a volcano erupting. Watch the short video I posted at the link.

    There is also another verse that I thought of when I saw these pictures because of the way the oil is gushing out like that of a mountain,or volcano....

    The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed." Revelation 8:8-9
