Microbes, Methane, and the Young Earth

If your wagon train ends up near Siljan, Sweden, that you made a heap of wrong turns. But you might want to check out that lake. It's part of the Siljan Ring, which is part of a crater area. Scientists found microbes feasting on the oil and giving off methane.

Researchers investigating the Siljan impact area found microbes eating oil and releasing methane. Results fit with what creationists have said for a long time about the age of the earth.

Avoid telling climate change cultists though, they would probably try to regulate and tax microbes and get Greta (who seeks to give her life meaning in activism, which will ultimately fail) to yell at us some more. While research and new discoveries are often interesting in and of themselves, in other ways they are not all that exciting. In this case, microbial communities have been discovered at far deeper levels than those near Siljan. In addition, this find also supports creation science evidence for a young earth.
Scientists have reported the presence of methane-producing microbes living deep beneath the Siljan impact crater in Sweden. Although the researchers stopped short of claiming the impact somehow brought the microbes to Earth, they do assert that impacts can create favorable habitats for colonization.
The 30-mile wide Siljan impact site is ringed by Ordovician and Silurian sediments, including black shales that appear to be source rocks for oil. In fact, oil seeps have been known around the crater for hundreds of years, dating back to reports by the great Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus in 1734.
