If Evolution is correct then tell me... Can I take a glass box sealed air tight and have that box create complex organisms, which evole into humans?? or for that matter will that box have a Complex Universe created insided of it? I see evolutionist telling why things are how they are but never giving any proof of how they got here.

Given Millions, possibly billions of years, you might have a chance. But evolution is not a "BANG!" thing. It takes time.

EVOLUTION DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY. EVOLUTION IS ADAPTION THROUGH GENERATIONS OF OFFSPRING WHICH ADAPT TO THE ENVIRONMENT TO SURVIVE, WHICH USUALLY BRINGS UP MAJOR CHANGES THAT TAKE THOUSANDS OF GENERATIONS

Perhaps if you lived to be older than the human race you might.

"I see evolutionist telling why things are how they are but never giving any proof of how they got here."

Evolution is the ONLY theory putting forth proofs. Now replace evolutionist with creationists and the sentence would be true.

Oh, I don't know which one my eyes will explode to first, the fundie with no understanding of evolution, or the atheist who thinks caps lock will help, which in fact is even more stupid than when fundies do it because it's most likely the author of this slander of evolution will never read it.

Well, if by 'glass box' you mean a planet or moon or other large enough place with temperature, pressure, and radiation conditions suitable for complex self-catalyzing chemistry; and by 'humans' you mean 'intelligent tool-users', then yes. Yes you could.

But success is not guaranteed, and it probably would take a few billion years.

And, like expecting an opened, then closed jar of peanut butter to produce life (dryer, less oil-based peanut butters are very good at resisting life) we have the "let's make life impossible" scenario as proof it couldn't happen in a temperate, watery mineral filled enviroment.

Add jam to peanut butter and life will happen even if refrigerated. The Earth was never a sealed jar, and here's the irony. Sealed jar experiments are to test reactions SEPERATED from outside contamination. Outside meaning the entire Earth and beyond that 'box' you idiots think is what our world is or began as

Evolution is not about the beginning of life, stupid! How many times do we have to spell out this simple fact, before you people get it?

Evolution IS happening, there's no doubt whatsoever about that.

What do you mean with "complex organisms"? The species with the highest amount of chromosomes (1260) is the adders-tongue, a fern. Humans, in contrast have only 46, so we're much less complex, apparently. Humans are not the "goal" of evolution, we're just one of billions of species that are evolving to adapt to a changing environment. We will evolve into something else eventually too, if we don't destroy the Earth before that.

If your glass box was large enough to fit all the essential precursors of complex organic life, then yes, absolutely.

The box won't do squat, it depends what you put in it.

Oh, I dunno...:



...you tell me, LacredShite. And equally if Cre(a)ti(o)nism is supposed to be the 'credible' alternative we're equally expected to accept, purely on spec, without evidence (and to our satisfaction); again, equally...?!
