Even under optimal laboratory conditions, the E. coli long-term evolution experiment(1) has demonstrated that bacteria don't evolve into even double-celled organisms over 50,000 generations over 20 years, much-less in nature on their own. Neither did they gain the ability to reproduce sexually.

It's clear that the age of the Earth isn't enough time for humans to evolve from bacteria.

The fact that humans didn't evolve from bacteria is further proven by the lack of evidence of trilobite ancestor fossils. To date, no ancestors of trilobites have been found.(1) Were humans to have evolved from bacteria, trilobites would be several steps up from bacteria, yet the steps in the middle don't exist.
