    by the way, a little off topic, but recently I read articles about some Russian scientists that had a completely different theory to the formation of oil, that it did not come primarily from rotting dinosaurs and organic material but instead from deep within the Earth's core.  Their reasoning in seeking an alternative explanation was the Saudi oil fields.  The amount of organic material required to form all of that oil was so immense that it was beyond belief that even with the age of the Earth, so much would be present in that area.  

    They began to come up with alternative theories and started looking in spots where those theories indicated the oil would be likely and the articles indicated they were very successful.  I'll have to revisit that info to see where it led but it certainly sounds possible.
