What a load of nonsense.. The earth is not a sealed jar, it was exposed to various elements that came from space for millions of years..
If you took the lid of that jar and left it out in the air, it would grow new life.. mould, bacteria etc
Critics of the argument have pointed out that sealed jars of peanut butter are not, generally speaking, multimillion-year-old volcanic environments rich in ammonia and methane, being bombarded by high energy cosmic rays. They also point out that the argument ignores the fact that the probability of life forming on Earth through abiogenesis was, most likely, incredibly low, and early earth conditions were conducive to the formation of life. Even assuming that a peanut butter jar was a valid example of an environment conducive to spontaneous abiogenesis, the "billions of experiments performed every year" pale in comparison to the trillions performed each day over millions of years of the Earth's history. In addition, no reasonable scientist is expecting a fully evolved peanut butter monster to jump out of the jar. Any life that would be created, however unlikely, would be microscopic in size and very basic life forms indeed, simpler than bacteria (probably no more than a few strings of organized chemicals replicating themselves), and would probably die almost instantly due to the presence of preservatives in the peanut butter (that is, of course, what those chemicals are there for!), or they would die due to a lack of oxygen in the peanut butter, or due to exposure to oxygen when the peanut butter jar was opened, or due to the competition from the millions of well-evolved bacteria already living in it despite the preservatives. It would certainly not be the case that fully formed ants will walk out of the opened jar as is hinted at by Missler's video sequence. In fact, even taken on its own terms this argument fails, since microscopic life forms would be invisible to the casual observer and if life did arise in one of these "billions of experiments performed every year", it would pass without notice. So the number of "experiments" performed with peanut butter jars is really a nonissue.

at the 0:52 sec mark, God is an ant that created life from crushed peanuts.
He has got a point though...the old amino acids, lightning, "primordial soup" theory has never been reproduced in a Lab
The earth is not a sealed jar, it was exposed to various elements that came from space for millions of years..

I'm sorry, but this is just Creationists trying to use some far out theory to justify their beliefs. That life on planets is extremely rare, [ as far as we know ] does not prove it is created by magic.
