Evidentiary basis of the abiogenic petroleum origin (on Earth) theory is the presence of carbon, including its organic forms, in meteorites and comets, where no biogenic substances are present. It is shown that normal and branched alkanes, cycloalkanes, isoprenoids, pristine and fistine, alkenes, aromatic hydrocarbons, alkyl benzenes, naphthalene, phenanthrene, pyrene, carboxylic acids, pyrimidines, purines, gunilmochevina, porphyrins, aminoacids have been found in meteorites. Among the organic substances identified in the methanol extract taken from the Murchison meteorite the authors have discovered molecules that have an average formula C100H155O20N3S3. As for the Chelyabinsk meteorite, among the gases revealed in the course of degassing at 343K there were methane, ethane, propane, butane, heptane, hexane, ethene, propene, and pentene. In the comet dust of the comet 81P / Wild 2 there were found methylamine, ethylamine, and glycine. In the comet 67P / Churyumov-Gerasimenko molecules of acetone, propanal, formaldehyde and methyl isocyanate were found; on the surface of the comet presence of the polymer molecules was shown. It is shown that the organic substances in comets and meteorites are also formed at low temperatures; at high temperatures the transformation of organic compounds towards the formation of substances with a high isobaric potential is observed.
