Over the past weeks, we have looked at telescopes, cameras, and other equipment used for observation of the Universe.
The most remarkable thing about all that we’ve learned in the Advanced Optics Series, is that none of this could be utilized or enjoyed without the human eye.
Sir Isaac Newton, realizing the complexity involved, questioned:
“Did blind chance know that there was light… and fit the eyes of all creatures after the most curious manner to make use of it? These and such like considerations always have and ever will prevail with mankind to believe that there is a being who made all things and has all things in his power and who is therefore to be feared.”
Indeed, the eye defies all patterns of evolution, because the concept of survival of the fittest would not allow it to simply form one step at a time.
According to atheistic evolution, it would need to be a functioning device before it could be worthy of being passed on to advanced evolutionary animals.
If we believe in the God of the Bible, we were designed with eyes to observe. Without the gift of sight, all man-made optics would be rendered useless.
