The scientific literature contains no evidence that natural selection working on mutation can produce an eye, a lens, retina, rhodopsin (visual purple), or retinal (Vitamin A). The 'miracle' of differentiation of colors enabling us to see a sunset in all its glory, is a creative marvel.
    The human retina has 125 million rods that see in black and white and 7 million that see in color. Complex 'filtering computers' enable the process. 
    What if evolution chose instead to use zinc instead of Vitamin A? And why didn't it? Or perhaps Vitamin C? Maybe K? Vitamin A is what makes it work. What if the eye's fluid was only changed annually by the body, instead of every four hours? Why is it things work they way they do? Who made them that way, evolution or God? Did God know what He was doing? Well, can you see? Aren't you glad you can?
    A photon of light causes a change in shape of the retinal molecule. This forces a change in the shape of a larger protein called rhodopsin, which is bonded to the retinal molecule. Then this process is turned off, restoring cells to their original state. Several mechanisms are involved in doing all this. Detailed explanations are in Darwin's Black Box, on pages 22-27. Is eyesight a good thing? What of God is there not to like?
    As I said earlier, "a theory is valuable only if it can lead to new findings. In order to claim that systems developed-gradually by a Darwinian mechanism it must be shown that the function of a system could have been formed by numerous successive slight modifications." Evolutionary theory is deficient because it fails to explain in detail every relevant step in processes of complex functioning, necessary for maintenance of life. Instead the theory relies upon conjectural-extrapolation of anatomical structures, resulting in questionable (because they are not able to be quantified, and therefore are unscientific) philosophical-determinations
    For the eye to function as it does, many proteins functioning in concert (all together in harmony of action) result in 'interpreting' the reaction of the retina to the photon, with the end result being what we call vision. The biological complexities, interdependencies, and synchronic functioning required to produce this phenomenon are mind boggling. Evolution overrides these meticulous interactions taking place in mechanisms supporting life by waving the wand of generalities over complex functions.
    The body is so remarkably designed that Paul Barton (PSB Speakers {audio home speakers}), board member of the National Research Council in Canada, relates the story of how one of his employees, while in university doing his thesis, developed a pair of eyeglasses which would reverse the image (how our naked eye sees anyhow, but the brain corrects it placing it right side up). After two hours of wearing these glasses the brain corrected the image, placing it right side up. After removing them, his naked eye saw things backward, but two hours later ... you guessed it! Now that's fast adaption with built in correction ability! Just astounding!
    Evolutionists engaging in legerdemain have misled many over the years.
    Often use of circular reasoning is used: "An improved retina maybe useless without an improved lens, but both retinas and lenses are subject to individual variation. Some of the better retinas would be found in individuals who also had better lenses, so that the improvements on average could be favored." ... George C. Williams, The Pony Fish's Glow, (1997), Basic Books, New York, N.Y, page 13.
    Other examples of circular reasoning used to 'support' the evolutionary theory .
    Another statement, this time from the book The Whole Shebang, Timothy Ferris, (1998), Touchstone, New York, N.Y., which tells us a 'lot' (I speak facetiously):-"things are as they are, because they were as they were"; which however, really could give us an interesting overview
    The evolutionist Lamark's example.
    Among animals, there is such diversity of eyes; for example, the elephant.
    More-evolutionary conjecture.

SEALS and WHALES:-Whales are related to the dolphins. Whales range in size up to 55 feet and 57 tons (63 tonnes).
    Whales seem to do strange things at times, like beaching themselves. One reason may be, is that loud sonar broadcasting with sound energy to 240 decibels has been found to injure, disorient, deafen and kill marine animals.
    Deep diving elephant seals also have scientists puzzled. The behavior was disclosed by the latest satellite computer tracking devices, pinned to the seals' backs by scientists at the Sea Mammal Research Unit in St. Andrews, Scotland and Cambridge, England. It was found that these seals can dive down a mile (1.66 kilometers) while holding breath for up to two hours. They can dive effortlessly because they start off with a few powerful strokes of their flippers, and then easily plunge the rest of the way as their lungs collapse under the increasing water pressure. A well balanced and efficient synergistic system. What they can't explain is how they can survive without surfacing for so long. But we can!-...continues
