    Titan

    So they found lakes of liquid ethane and alkanes up to octane. Now the last time I checked there is no cyanobacteria on Titan. However there is a methane spewing cryovolcano. Shouldn't it be obvious to everyone by now that hydrocarbons have a volcanic origin and not a biological origin?

    The fact that abiotic production of alkanes is observed elsewhere in the solar system (and on Earth) does nothing to prove that biological production is impossible, or even improbable.

    Right. The fact that a biological hypothesis is the siliest notion to have ever been entertained my a human being proves that biological production is impossible: http://www.gasresources.net/DisposalBioClaims.htm

    It's a violation of the Second Law of Thermodynamics: http://www.gasresources.net/ThrmcCnstrnts.htm

    Natural petroleum can only be formed at pressures above 30 kilobar which corresponds to a depth of 100 kilometers deep in the earth's mantle: http://www.pnas.org/content/99/17/10976.full

    Total Science, take this to ATM if you want to argue abiotic oil, do NOT try to introduce it here.
    This is an official warning.

  2. Titan. And Titan-like exoplanets. Supertitans perhaps.
