• Question: do u belive that if you dig a large hole in the ground and fill it with lots of material eg bodies and stones and other materials could you create crude oil in a few hundred years time ?

      I think you better be using a lot of organic materials like tree leaves and tree trunks and other which contain a lot of carbon to fill the hole. Then if you are lucky and all that material is subjected to very high pressures over MILLIONS of years then your great great great great (x 100,000) grand children may actually have oil!
