With all the plate tectonics that has happened in the past 4.5 billion
years on earth, any original hydrocarbons that the earth accumulated
during it's formation would have long ago broken down due to the
high heat of the magma under the crust. And microbes would have
eaten anything near the surface.
The oil we have didn't come from dead dinosaurs. Anybody who
says that is just plain being silly. The oil we have was formed
in the oceans during a unique period where the oceans had
stagnated and there was no oxygen to break down the organics.
But this was a recent event in earth's history, about 100 million
years ago, and isn't going to happen again under the current
conditions on earth.
