Evolution of the eye
« on: January 05, 2017, 07:43:26 PM »
Where is the best argument here, or other sites, that anyone has seen, for posting elsewhere as a strong proof of the evolution of the eye?   You know, so many in theism think there could not have been a step by step method.  I remember one here but can't find it.

I know Ive seen Dawkins discuss the eye. Starts out as a patch of light sensitive cells ---- ends up the eye of a hawk.

That moment when Dawkins explained the evolution of the eye was when I finally comprehended and accepted evolution as true.  I remember him also saying you can look throughout the animal kingdom and see the eye in different stages.  How our eyes are not the best eyes and that we actually see things upside down, the brain turns the image around.

Dawkins devotes a whole chapter to this topic in Climbing Mount Improbable.
