Discovering Oil in Isreal

First of all, a hat tip to "The Barking Moonbat." This is just too cosmic comic. From World Net Daily

"Noble Energy, a New York Stock Exchange-listed company, has discovered an estimated more than 3 trillion cubic feet of natural gas in three high-quality reservoirs drilled in the company's Tamar No. 1 well in the Mediterranean Sea, about 56 miles off the Israeli northern port of Haifa.

Noble Energy drilled the Tamar No. 1 well to a depth of about three miles, beneath 5,500 feet of water.

The find is significant for those who believe the Bible indicates Israel is sitting on a massive oil reserve that would reshape the geopolitical structure of the Middle East.

The find also lends support to the abiotic theory of the origin of oil that holds oil is created naturally within the mantle of the earth, not by biological origins."

This is a Funny God I serve. Two birds with one stone and that being only the two I saw? On one level you can't stop the side splitting chuckles that come from Israel finding a new petroleum reserve and tipping the balance even further in favor of supply in the Middle East. A richer Israel? A poorer Iran? I can wake up every day and laugh about that one.

At the same time proving an "abiotic theory of the origin of oil" would send me to bed every day chuckling. Time and time the Bible has proved to be a great archeological tome. Looking as closely as possible to where it seems to say "dig" generally yields positive results. If the Bible says it's there, and we look, we eventually find. The Bible says the earth is a young woman, not an old one. Maybe she's still cranking out oil as a geological byproduct, and not baren after all.

The bad part is that some folks are getting all apocalyptic about it.

I say 'great'. Let Israel have their natural gas. Perhaps then they'll be able to stand on their own two feet and we won't have to bother with AIPAC any more.

as i know israel has pretty big number of such resourses, including the one which is under the lake kinereth, but for some reason israel does not develop such resourses...
