My answers are blue inserts in your post, imediately following your questions. You also made a false, completely unsupported, assertion: "Oil is not associated with algae in any way whatsover. We are drilling for oil deeper than any algae and finding it." That is not a question, but I will correct your ignorance, anyway: There are sub-duction regions at least as deep as the mountains (Must be true as Earth is not significantly changing it mass.) Dead un-oxidized algae was transported along with the sediments etc in these sub-duction zones very deep into the Earth. (Sub-duction BTW initially takes places in the same locations that become oceans. I.e. oceans form as these regions sink below the levels of other seas and are flooded with salt water.) The depth these sub-ductions reach is at least as high as the mountains that rise where the tectonic plates collide. I do not remember how tall some mountains are, but am sure many are much higher than man has yet drilled and found oil. - I.e. again your facts are simply wrong. Yes, man can drill deeper that the oil that formed from algae is thermally stable. I said that explicitly that in my prior post. So of course neither algae, nor oil is found at depths where they decomposed into CH4 and H2. I challenge you to try to answer, rather than avoid, my questions by quoting my question and immediately giving your answer in different color as I have done.
