All the elements that are required to form a primitive vacuum tube are found in exactly the right proportions at volcanoes under overhanging power lines.
Since the evolutionary formation of the proto-vacuum tube was not observed, its exact structure and method of operation is not known. However, we know that it existed, as Computer Evolution tells us.
A plausable scenario is that the proto-vacuum tube was formed from a superheated sand bubble which cooled into glass in the presence of heavy base metals, and was then set into working by electric currents. Obviously, there would have been heat present, such as generated by the volcano or an electric toaster oven, or lightning striking in the same place more than twice. It would not have been necessary for the proto-vacuum tube to power itself, since its power could be provided by its environment, such as overhanging power lines, until the tube had evolved the capability to regulate its own power supply.
Detractors of computer evolution are unable to grasp the scientific concept that computer hardware and software arose spontantously from inanimate elements.
Persons that raise such objections are unaware of laboratory demonstrations where all the components required to make a computer are produced from entirely natural substances, such as silica, gallium, arsenic, copper, iron and bakelite. Arguing for the existence of a designer is clearly not valid, since it has been possible to reproduce computer components in laboratory experiments.
