Under the crust of the Earth, oil is found deposited in oil wells. This oil is under considerable pressure. The pressure in oil wells is measured in pounds per square inch or psi.

The pressure of oil in oil wells is 20,000 pounds per square inch (psi). This explains why, when oil prospectors drill down into the Earth‘s crust for the oil, the oil is forcibly ejected from the oil well, because of the tremendous pressure.

Oil formed from organisms that once lived in the sea

– According to Holt General Science, 1988, p.294, “Oil and gas are made from “organisms that once lived in the sea. …changed by heat and pressure”… into oil”. .

– According to The Journal of Petroleum Geology Leigh Price 1983 p.32 oil can form in 1000-10,000 years!

– This subject is also discussed in “How Fast can Oil Form?” by Andrew Snelling 1990, Creation Ex Nihilo, 12(2):30.

Oil can be created artificially

– According to Creation Ex Nihilo, Vol 12 No. 2, p. 30, in “How fast can oil form?”, scientist can now convert vegetable matter, using heat and pressure, into oil in a couple of minutes inside a laboratory.

– According to Hadden R. Appell, US Dept. of Interior, Bureau of Mines, in “Converting Organic Wastes to Oil,” oil can be manufactured in 20 minutes.

– According to Mike Riddle in “Creation/Evolution: Does it Matter what we Believe?” By, ICR, p. 28, “In 1996 a $22.4 million proposal was approved in Western Australia that will build a plant to create oil from sewage sludge in 30 minutes”.

Geologists say the crust of the Earth could not have contained an oil pressure of 20,000 psi for more than 10,000 years

According to Creation Ex Nihilo Vol 12 No. 2, p.30 in “How fast can oil form?” geologists say that there is a limit to how long the rocks of the Earth’s crust could contain a pressure of 20,000 psi. According to these geologists the rocks could not have contained that kind of oil pressure for more than 10,000 years, without breaking up.

– If the Earth is billions of years old, why is oil present in oil wells, if it cannot be contained for more than 10,000 years?

– How did the oil get there?

– How was the oil created?

According to the Bible.

– God created the Heavens and the Earth 6,000 years ago approximately.

– 4,400 years ago there was a world wide Flood.

– As the crust of the Earth was broken up, and water ran off the land, the geography was dramatically altered.

At this point we have to do some reasoning, based on observations and known facts:

– About 4,400 years ago, according to the Bible, there was a Flood.

– In that Flood organic material in the form of fish, animals and people drowned.

– This organic material was greatly compressed by millions of tons of rocks, sand, gravel and mud, which compressed the dead carcasses, producing oil.

– Many Creationists believe that coal was similarly formed by the compression of vegetable matter at the time of Noah’s flood.

The existence of oil in oil wells proves a young universe

Since, according to geologists, oil cannot be contained within the crust of the Earth for more than 10,000 years, the existence of oil in oil wells indicates that the Universe cannot be billions of years old, but less than 10,000 years old.

big bang theoryMost text books teach that, in its early life, the Earth was a hot molten mass formed as a result of the Big Bang billions of years ago.

According to this theory, the Earth slowly cooled down over millions of years, leaving a hot molten central core, with the cooled Earth’s crust.

Holt Earth Science 1994, p. 280
surface of the moonAccording to Holt Earth Science, “As Earth formed, its surface was similar to the surface of the moon today. Craters, like those in the picture, and large plains of volcanic basalt may have marked its surface. But unlike its moon, Earth’s surface was hot, and there were large pools of bubbling lava”.

The Bible and the Creation of the Earth

water canopy around the earthThe Bible does not describe the Earth as ever being a hot molten mass!

To the contrary, the Bible states in Genesis1:1, 2,

In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth. The Earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters”.

According to the Bible, the Earth was formed under water, by God, and not as a result of the Big Bang Theory.

We therefore have two completely different accounts of the formation of Planet Earth. We suspect that the Bible is the correct version of events. This has in fact been proved by the existence of Polonium Halos found in granite all over the world.


Robert Gentry, whose excellent research may be read at www.halos.com has written a remarkable book, “Creation’s Tiny Mystery”. In the book Robert Gentry describes the results of his studies of samples of granite from all over the world.

He discovered that granite contains Polonium Halos. Polonium is one of the many elements that make up the Periodic Table, and the Halos are the result of radioactive decay of this element over a very short period of time. creations tiny mystery polonium halos by roberty v gentry

Polonium has a very short half life

Polonium is a radioactive isotope that decays very rapidly. This is described technically as having a very short half life.

– The isotope Po-218 has a half life of 3 minutes.

– The isotope Po-214 has a half life of only 0.164 seconds.

Polonium Halos 

As Polonium atoms emit radioactive particles, the atoms are surrounded by Halos of radioactive particles.

Example 1

A Polonium Halo may be likened to a firework exploding in the night sky. If the sky is captured in a photograph, such as this one, then the image of the “Firework Halo” can be preserved for posterity.

Example 2

Another example would be an effervescent tablet dissolving in a glass of water. As the effervescent tablet dissolves in the water, the effervescence in the water rapidly disappears. However, if the water was frozen at a very early stage, the effervescence would be visible in the ice. effervescence

Effervescence observed in ice would be an indication of almost instantaneous freezing of the water.


Polonium Halos could have formed only if the rapidly decaying Polonium atoms, and the Halos of radioactive particles around the atoms, had been instantly encased in solid rock, with the emission of radioactive particles preserved as Polonium Halos.

Polonium Halos

These observable Polonium Halos provide undeniable evidence that the first created Polonium atoms were instantly preserved in solid granite, since the half life of Polonium is 3 minutes at most.


Polonium Halos are found in granite samples all over the world, and may be viewed using a microscope. The occurrence of these Polonium Halos in granite samples from all over the world indicates that the Earth was formed in an extremely short time, in complete harmony with the Biblical record of Creation in Genesis Chapter 1.


If the Earth was originally a hot molten mass which took millions of years to cool down, the radioactive particles emitted by the rapidly decaying Polonium, and accompanying Polonium Halos, would disappear in the molten lava, in the same way as an effervescent tablet in a glass of water.

The existence of Polonium Halos in granite samples from all over the world therefore completely disproves the Big Bang Theory.
