More On Abiotic Oil

It appears that Titan, one of Saturn's moons has hundreds of times more liquid hydrocarbons than all of the gas reserves on Earth combined. I guess there must have been a LOT of freaking dinosaurs living on that moon in order.... oh wait... no, that's impossible.

Well gee wiz, I guess it must be a geological producing all of those hydrocarbons (the building blocks of oil). Now, it's certainly possible that some of our oil is the result of dead animals and vegetation but there's a very good chance that it originates from geologic sources.

Oh, one more thing, go look at the article. While you're reading it, you'll notice that the picture of Titan appears to get smaller while you're not looking directly at it.
