Charles Darwin described the eye as one of the greatest challenges to his theory. How could he explain it? "To suppose that the eye with all of its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree" (Charles Darwin in the Origin of Species, J.M. Dent and sons, Ltd, London, 1971, p.167).
King Solomon wrote in Psalm 94:9, "He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye shall he not see?"
The human eye possesses 130 million light sensitive rods and cones that convert light into chemical impulses. These signals travel at a rate of a billion per second to the brain. How could the eye, with its many intricate, interacting structures, have evolved through random process? Darwin was troubled by the eye. He wrote this to his botanist friend Asa Gray in February 1860, "To this day the eye makes me shudder!"
Darwin never read this Scripture in Proverbs 20:12, "The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made both of them." This Scripture would of settled it with Darwin that the eye was created and did not evolve.
Incredible as the eye is, consider that we have not one but two of them. The matched pair, coupled with an interpretive center in the brain, allows us to determine distances to the objects we see. Our eyes also have the ability to focus automatically by elongation or compressing themselves. They are also inset beneath a bony brow that, along with automatic shutters in form of eye lids, provide protection for these intricate and delicate organs.
Professor H.S. Lipson, in 1980 wrote about the eye. "We must go further than this and admit that the only acceptable explanation is creation. I know that this is anathema to physicists, as indeed it is to me, but we must not reject a theory that we do not like if the experimental evidences support it." (British Institute of Physics, Physics Bulletin, vol. 30, p. 140).
As a creationist I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for creating the physical eye for seeing the beauty of His Creation, but I truly thank Him for the spiritual eyes, He has giving me to see His Word and worship Him by faith as Creator and Saviour. Amen !!!
