If oil on our planet is believed to have come as a byproduct of the decomposition of certain organic life, then how can it be speculated that Titan and Saturn both have oil? Isn't that a stretch? Learn together 11:54, 15 November 2008 (EST)

I think that in recent times there's been a bit of a move away from the idea that oil is derived from organic life. Also, proposing that oil on Earth has a biological origin doesn't preclude there being other ways of deriving it. Further, some will no doubt see this as evidence of past life on those bodies. Nevertheless, oil on extraterrestrial bodies does support the idea of a non-biological origin. Philip J. Rayment 18:01, 15 November 2008 (EST)

The intro

Please don't put "new" proposals or scientific papers in the lead paragraph. You know it takes anywhere from 6 months to 3 years, for a new scientific claim to be evaluated by academia. The "latest" scientific paper is the last thing we need; so, put it at the end of the article. --Ed Poor Talk 16:30, 25 August 2009 (EDT)
