Just because you have been told it takes millions of years doesn't make it so.
Thats why I made the comment that the article agrees with me, you linked the article to say that oil can be man made but thats not the point. Do you agree with the statement 'Oil takes millions of years to form in nature' ?

In your opinion how long does it take for the oil to form? 100yrs, 1000, 6000?

FYI that was just the first article I found on a quick search, If I had posted one with detail from a young earth creation scientist you would not have accepted it either.
No I do not believe in millions of years, from my study the evidence points to a young earth.

Yes, I agree with most of what he said. I said earlier that the term 'fossil fuel' is a misnomer and the oil has nothing to do with fossils.

I started the thread with the term "Fossil fuel" to catch attention. I do not support that term either. I call it what it is Mineral oil and fuel. And true engineering publications will call it that as well.
