    Methane is rejected by biological organisms.

    So ? They still make it. So it didn't originate from the mantle.

    Besides, it's not even true.
    "The microbes form massive organic mats that cover the surface of rock pipes reaching up to four meters. These pipes are not preformed structures; rather, they are formed—and shaped—by the microbes' consumption of methane. The microbial mats consist of sulfur-reducing bacteria and species of Archaea, a domain of life distinct from plants, animals and bacteria."

    The reason why certain extremophiles including archaea feed off of methane is because methane comes from the mantle and the extremophiles and archaea are part of the deep hot biosphere.

    So you were wrong again.
    Now what about methane producing bacteria ? Post 39.

    I mispoke and I stand corrected. See how happily I admit when I'm wrong?

    Bacteria reject methane from their systems as well.

    Thank you.

    But they make it. While you say that isn't possible.

    They make it because their biology rejects it.

    The formation of any hydrocarbon other than CH4 at crustal pressures is impossible.

    This doesn't make any sense.

    As far as I know. So why did you bring it up in this thread ?
    Do you admit your mistake ?

    I have nothing more to say to you until you answer the question "why do animals degass methane?"

    What does it matter ?
    Probably to keep them from inflating lol
    In order to not be ejected it has to beneficial; it has to be absorbed actively.
    It's just a by product of digestion that gets ejected together with the rest.
