Lightning strikes sand in the desert and converts it to glass...this same desert sand (though largely silicon dioxide) also has small or trace amounts of carbon and metals e.g. Fe and perhaps even Au and platinum interspersed; and the desert air has a mixture of all the gases known to man in varying quantities.

Now imagine some scientists unknowingly examining these conditions and concluding that, because all the elements necessary for light bulb production are present there in the desert, that light bulbs evolved into being... And therefore were not created.

What do you think of these scientists observation?

Having the knowledge we now possess, we'd just laugh and shake our heads because we know the history of where, how and by whom the light bulb was created because this has been observed and carefully recorded in scientific textbooks, history books and encyclopedias.

The fact that all the gases, solid elements and electricity (in lightning) are all present simultaneously (for seconds at a time in the desert), does not mean light bulbs were not created but simply evolved into being.

And if light bulbs were self-replicating chemical organisms you might have a point.

I don't know. I swear I once saw this video on the internet of this woman doing, well, "something" with a light bulb! That may be evidence they can reproduce, or something.
