Sweet Christmas, that's weird to think about. Some of the water we drink - hell, some of the water we're made of - is older than the planet we stand on and the giant glowy sky ball that keeps us warm.

Nope.. most of the water molecules on this planet were formed right here on this planet.

Water is a very finicky molecule. It splits into it's component atoms very easily thusly destroying it Heck ally uyou need is a alot of head, like the molten surface of a freshly formed planet. SO any water that got pulled in by gravity was disintergrated by the heat.

but fret not, do you know how you can make water? burn something in an atmosphere rich in hydrogen and oxygen.... Yup. when you burn a match in eaths atmosphere you're actually creating a small amount of water. Then there's organic life which both consumes and manufactures water.

I don't know where the notion that water was uncommon came from really. It's made with the most prolific element in the universe and another not exactly rare element

No it doesn't. Water splits easily into two ions, but not its component atoms. Water is actually a very stable compound despite being an unstable molecule.
Of course there ARE situations in which is can be broken down completely, but that's true of every single compound.
