Evolution doesn't even try to explain how life began. It probably began with a meteor. That is how we got most if not all of our water. Meteors may have either brought amino acids with them or may even have brought very fundamental life itself. We know that simply earthly organisms have survived space, so why not? At any rate, even if a meteor landed on a religious yahoo while holding a jar of peanut butter, the planet is nothing like it was back when life began.

Peanut butter, bananas.. these people are simple minded as hell.

Here's a frightening thought: maybe they're not really that simple. Maybe they know their audiences.

Of course! This PROVES that evolution is false! A jar of peanut butter NEVER has life in i... oh wait.. What's THIS ? And what about THIS?  And then there's THIS !

I guess all those people that got sick from eating that peanut butter must be.. SINNERS. Heathens! 

But seriously, peanut butter is a lot of fat that is sealed. That, coupled with the fact that it's very dry and has vitamin E, helps it against the breakdown introduced by oxygen. Oxygen will eventually make it go rancid. Something will get in to the peanut butter because the seal or the plastic will fail, letting bacteria or whatever lifeforms that don't mind a little rancid fat and sugar in. Tada! Instant life, be that bacteria or ant, that got into the peanut butter, all without the help of a sticky, dirty handed second-grader. In fact, I bet this rancid, oxygen penetrated, bacteria filled 40 year old peanut butter exists in some of your grandmother's food pantry.

But that is not the point he tried to make however ridiculous. Salmonella bacteria, we share common ancestry with, did not spontaneously come into existence in these instances.

Believers can relax. They may get sick from eating peanut-butter without having to also go off and burn in hell for all eternity.

Albert, you're no fun, ya big poo. I bet you like to announce that Santa Clause can't be real because of some law of physics or something. Anyways, yeah, peanut butter jar = poor condition to support new life, primordial soup on a nice warm planet = good condition.
