Is it worth mentioning Tom Gold's The Deep Hot Biosphere here? (and his theory that hydrocarbon deposits are produced by ongoing endolithic action, and aren't fossil fuels at all)? I don't know how much of a crank the mainstream community thinks Gold is. -- Finlay McWalter | Talk 14:47, 31 Mar 2004 (UTC)
Are all endoliths really extremophiles. The name merely indicates that they live inside rocks. References I have found consider algae living within coral to be endoliths. I would like to remove the reference to extremophiles from this page (or at least qualify it: 'many endoliths are extremophiles'). I'm also putting as similar query on the extremophile page to remove the endolith link. Jmeppley 01:35, 6 Nov 2004 (UTC)
these are generally-accepted by mainstream scientists, right? should have some references. i know nothing about how a creature could survive off iron alone... - Omegatron 22:02, May 24, 2005 (UTC)
How do they move about inside a rock? Do they live in cavities inside rocks or physically inside solid rock matter?--Sonjaaa 04:28, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
false redirection from "pulp stone"
There should not be a redirection from "pulp stone" to this article. Denticles as in pulp stones are a dental/medical topic and have nothing to do with endoliths. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:34, 17 November 2010 (UTC) see the german version "Dentikel".188.8.131.52 (talk) 15:30, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
- There's now an article Pulp stones about the dental topic. I've added a hatnote to this one. But I can't see any reason for the redirect here, as "pulp stone" isn't mentioned in the article. If it's relevant, could someone please make some mention of it in the article? PamD 17:11, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
