Chowing Down on Propane

Some people say that the little things in life are what matter. We can adjust that to say that little living things matter. This goes all the way down to bacteria. Many people know that even though there are harmful bacteria, there are many that are necessary for life. Some even help protect the environment.

Way down in the deep blue sea are organisms that live on asphalt volcanoes and essentially chow down on propane. Seems weird, but it's true. It's also frustrating for evolutionists to explain the symbiotic relationship among the critters living there, and waving it off as EvolutionDidIt is beyond credibility.

So, why is it different when biblical creationists say that God created bacteria to adapt and to eat propane, and have a quid pro quo happening with other creatures? I think the principle of the impossibility of the contrary may apply. That is, although they don't want to admit that the Creator's design is the logical conclusion, evolution is clearly impossible. But fundamentalist evolutionists cling to their stories despite the lack of models, science, or logic.
Asphalt volcanos really do exist on the ocean floor. They leak natural gas, oil, and the same type of black glop we use for road pavement. They have been oozing for who knows how long, although scientists discovered them only 15 or so years ago. Unique sea creatures team up to eat their petroleum products. How could any living thing live off natural gas?
We know of special bacteria that eat oil. For example, they cleaned up the Gulf of Mexico after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill more quickly than some thought possible. But the mussels, sea worms, crabs, sponges, and other animals that thrive on the slopes of asphalt volcanoes cannot eat oil.

So, deep sea bacteria help clean up the environment by eating asphalt and propane. This frustrates evolutionists, since they have no plausible evidence or models. They also reject creation out of hand, even though it's the logical conclusion to what's happening way down in the oceans.
