Thanks for your contribution to Ton Roosendaal, but we are trying to write an encyclopedia here, so please keep your edits factual and neutral. Some readers looking for a serious article might not find them amusing. Remember, millions of people read Wikipedia, so we have to take what we do a bit seriously here. If you'd like to experiment with editing, use the Sandbox to get started. I hope you can help us out! Asteriontalk 12:39, 25 December 2006 (UTC)

You have to look at the references/footnotes before making a change. David Fisher doesn't have Israeli citizenship, but was born in Tel Aviv. -NYC2TLV (talk) 08:15, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Since you referenced Vietnam in your removal, maybe you should read this from If abiotic oil exists, where is it?:

Offshore, South Vietnam

The source rock for the hydrocarbons is an algal-rich lacustrine rock which matured during the Oligocene-Miocene pull-apart basin and subsequent burial phases. Migration of the oil occurred from the Miocene to recent times, and filled the available fracture and grain space in the highly fractured basement rocks and overlying sedimentary rocks. The Boch Ho field is estimated to contain 1 billion barrels of oil, and is produced mainly from the intrusive granitoid plutons. (Jean Laherrere states that a better estimate is between 1.2 and 1.5 Gb.) The hydrocarbons are not abiotic, they originate from the lacustrine sedimentary rock.

I've already read and debunked the FTW post by the chemistry professor who is trying playing dumb and ignore the fact that he should understand Enthalpy. I won't edit this again though, you obviously have a vested interest in this. I just hope you do a bit more research and act on the improvements I've tried to make. Signed, a Scientist (not a Geologist though, thankfully). 202.89.188.44 (talk) 18:18, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
I'm not sure what chemistry you're referring to... the above article simply states that no physical evidence exists of abiotic oil produced from drilling wells, including those in Vietnam. Your summary for deletion of sourced material suggested you believed otherwise, and I pointed you to information that may clear up any confusion you have on the subject. If you have usable sources for these articles, please feel free to mention them. So far I have seen no sources that contradict the statement that the biological origin of petroleum is a scientific consensus, and that is all Wikipedia allows us to go by. (FYI, I got into editing Wikipedia while looking up abiotic oil after seeing a Stanley Monteith video... and was a little surprised at how shaky was the ground on which he places the entire weight of his theories. I'm a cynic and a skeptic of all sides of every debate, but no fool.) NJGW (talk) 19:12, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
By scientific consensus I meant the lack of physical evidence for and inability to predict productive wells by the abiotic theory, as stated in this article (among others). If the carbon isotope concentrations in diamondoids, biomarkers found in all oil (molecules that are perfect structures of reduced forms of biological molecules such as steroids and porphyrins), and the lack of drilling evidence isn't convincing, please tell me what is. NJGW (talk) 20:50, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
Look, you're presenting facts I'm already aware of which made me think a bit more. I entered this skeptical of both sides as well. My background is in Physics, not Chemistry but we use what they use but in a less practical abstract form. I was so intrigued that I went backed to my statistical mechanics books and tried to understand how chemists dealt with it. Even the biotic guys acknowledged that abiotic oil production is (or was at one point in time) possible through the thoroughly tested Fischer-Tropsch process. Then they came out with the "Oil window" and discovered these "biological markers" you've referenced. Much like the markers for coal (which everyone can see) most people would conclude from these markers that the case is closed. Unfortunately for them science is not that kind. It doesn't actually disprove the abiotic theory at all, since it doesn't discount the possibility under the abiotic scenario of debris being caught up as hydrocarbons rise from fissures. So with this information you can conclude that the case is not closed. I'm not going to advocate for the abiotic theory, because it should be self-evident when you look at the Science. To me, it doesn't matter if you hit the wrong conclusion as long as you do it the right way. That way, you can find the error that lead you to the conclusion and correct yourself later. But if all you do is read what other people wrote and use it to reinforce a wanted belief, then you're doing yourself a disservice. Sorry about the length of this (and the lack of paragraphing, not sure how it works here), but you seem really interested in this which is great. 202.89.188.44 (talk) 03:59, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Anonymity[edit]

Hi, it appears that you have some good contributions to make. As a tip, if you're getting involved in hefty discussions, it will help strengthen your voice if you use a logged-in account, rather than editing anonymously. It only takes a moment to create an account, and costs nothing (see WP:LOGIN). I hope you'll consider it. :) --Elonka 18:19, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi Elonka, just for the record, not all contributions from this IP are mine, but recently I've gotten a static IP address. :) I had a wikipedia account but I forgot the login, I guess its worthwhile making one. 202.89.188.44 (talk) 13:47, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Welcome

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages you might like to see:
