  • Dumb question: How did oil get below the ocean floor?

    05/10/2010 4:55:03 PM PDT · by Miztiki · 89 replies · 2,620+ views
    After reading another article about the oil leak in the Gulf, it got me to wondering how oil came to be there in the first place.

For instance, I know from reading my bible that people were vegetarians, had one language, that there were no rainbows until after the flood, that animals had no fear of man,...
