Darwin Said the Eye Could Not Have Evolved 09/07/2016


Moody Adams, from book "Proof"
Human eyes are so fantastic, Charles Darwin said: “That the eye with all its inimitable contrivances...could have been formed by natural selection seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.” Listen to the father of the theory of evolution. He says the eye could not have evolved.
One of the great supernatural miracles of the universe is the human eye. All the brilliant minds of men have never created a camera that compares with it. The eye has automatic aiming, automatic focusing, and automatic aperture adjustment. In darkness the eye can increase its ability to see by one hundred thousand times. In the bright sunlight it adjusts perfectly. The eye is protected from blows by the protruding hard bone of the brow. It is protected from foreign objects by a shutter we call a lid. It can see a fine hair or the billions of miles covered in the starry sky. It operates at speeds of up to 100,000 motions a day.
But there are more amazing things about the human eye than mere sight. Two eyes side by side not only give us sight, but also a range finder that determines distance.
The eye even performs its own maintenance while we sleep. Dr. William Paley wrote a classic work entitled Natural Theology, in which he discusses the eye. “In order to keep the eye moist and clean—which qualities are necessary to its brightness and its use—a wash is constantly supplied by a secretion for the purpose; and the superfluous brine is conveyed to the nose through a perforation in the bone as large as a goose quill. When once the fluid has entered the nose, it spreads itself upon the inside of the nostril, and is evaporated by the current of warm air which in the course of respiration is continually passing over it . . . It is easily perceived that the eye must want moisture; but could the want of the eye generate the gland which produces the tear, or bore the hole by which it is discharged—a hole through a bone?”
Sir Charles Scott Sherrington, famous English physiologist of Oxford who wrote a classic work on the eye, said: “Behind the intricate mechanism of the human eye lie breath-taking glimpses of a Master Plan.” Yes, and a glimpse of a brilliant God who could design, create and maintain such a creation as the human eye.
Each eye is a camera, with the size of the pupil adjusting to light and the eyeball adjusting to distance. There are even chemical adjustments for night vision.
The eyeball is washed, front and back, by freshly produced saline solution. The tear glands wash foreign particles out with a liquid that kills bacteria.
Charles Dickens, like Darwin, was likewise convinced from the study of the eye that there has to be a designer, a creator, a God.
