when did humans first learn to use Petroleum ??

Recommended Posts

Various theories have been advanced over the years as to the origin of petroleum proposing an animal, vegetable,mineral and even meteoric origin.
Today, however,most scientists believe that oil and gas originated in plant and animal matter that accumulated in fine grained sediments at the bottom of ancient seas many millions of years ago .
This theory suggests that oil originated as the remains of countless organisms that either lived in the sea or water deposited there with mud and silt from prehistoric rivers and streams. The remains of those ancient plants and animals were transformed into oil and gas by bacterial action with heat and pressure resulting from deep burial beneath other sediments.
It seems,then .that the story of petroleum began hundreds of millions of years ago

If its Durasic and Cretaceous periods we are talking about it amazes me that while some fossils can be found just below the surface, like oil. While others are so far down into the earths surface +/-20,000ft, how much smaller was the planet during these times for so much sedimentary rock to have covered the carbon soup. Its mind blowing so mind blowing that I think the planet produces oil as a by product of all that heat in the core, its like an Engine. We shouldn't be shouting too loud about the use of this gift as a bad thing, maybe if we don't use it it could damage the planet. Nature should be respected.
