SO EITHER OIL CAN BE FORMED VIA GEOLOGICAL PROCESSES, OR TITAN HAS UNDISCOVERED LIFE: Titan Has More Oil Than Earth. “Saturn’s smoggy moon Titan has hundreds of times more natural gas and other liquid hydrocarbons than all the known oil and natural gas reserves on Earth, scientists said today. The hydrocarbons rain from the sky on the miserable moon, collecting in vast deposits that form lakes and dunes. This much was known. But now the stuff has been quantified using observations from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft.”

UPDATE: Link was bad before. Fixed now. Sorry!
