You seem to be interested in light. OK, Lets try this one. Darkness is, by definition, the absence of light. You can not "create" darkness, you can block light. Are you asking something else?

Darkness is most commonly the absence of visible light. So in a sense you create darkness whenever you block visible light, or turn off a source of visible light. In another sense, you create darkness when you close your eyes, since you block visible light from reaching your pupils.

I foresee lots of discussion ensuing, all revolving around the different meanings of "create" and "darkness". Since neither word has a scientifically precise definition, there will be many interpretations of their meaning, and thus many possible answers.
