Skip to comments.CAN EVOLUTION PRODUCE AN EYE? Evolution vs. Creation
Posted on 10/29/2009 7:00:32 PM PDT by The Ignorant Fisherman
The following is by Dr. David N. Menton, Ph.D. It is copyrighted 1994 by Missouri Association for Creation --
The human brain consists of approximately 12 billion cells, forming 120 trillion interconnections. The light sensitive retina of the eye (which is really part of the brain) contains over 10 million photoreceptor cells. These cells capture the light pattern formed by the lens and convert it into complex electrical signals, which are then sent to a special area of the brain where they are transformed into the sensation we call vision.
In an article in "Byte" magazine (April 1985), John Stevens compares the signal processing ability of the cells in the retina with that of the most sophisticated computer designed by man, the Cray supercomputer:

This is one of the biggest black holes of Darwinism. How does an eye evolve?

The simple answer is “yes”. But I know you must have some questions. Start here, and when you get done with these, I’ll send some more.
Short answer: yes.

More “Snap Your Finger” time.
Actually, yes. At that, it is one of the best documented transitions. The gene changes have even been mapped in the mollusk family from light sensitive cells through the very advanced squid eye.
yes, of course it can invent an eye, IT HAS TOO, and of course, you can take drawings and lay then in an order to fool folks into believing a light sensitive cell (THAT APPARENTLY JUST POPPED INTO EXISTANCE AS WELL) turned step by step into an eye...
because it, HAS TO, THE RELIGION REQUIRES IT....
Handwaving at its finest.
still waiting for a crackpot evoloutionsist to tell me how come in our lifetime a dog has never produced anyhting but a dog same with any other species. its the core principle of eviloution and when did eviloution stop? ask many and none ever have the 2 answers that are vital to there made up theory.
Or, to put it another way, “LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA I’m going to ignore every fact before me LA LA LA LA LA”.
Do you really expect a complete total answer that will fit on your computer screen, understandable at a glance? or will you acknowledge that there is a plain logical sequencing of reasonable transitions backed up by real-world examples?
As a Creationist, I do find the arguments of fellow believers on the whole downright stupid and embarrassing. Much of the science is there, and snide dismissals doesn’t advance the cause any more than threatening to burn Galileo at the stake did.
Getting life to start at all, now there’s the interesting question...
Yeah, there's a real good basis for modern scientific creationism: an electronic hobbyist magazine from 25 years ago.
Hey...I probably still have that issue...
and as a creationist, im not expecting an all encompassing explaination of how the eye came to be....i nvr said that, i merely pointed out that all we are given is pretty pics and graphs PLACED IN A SPECIFIC ORDER to fool folks into believing eyes evolved from a light sensitive spot.....all with ‘just so’ stories used as scientific evidence.
evolutionism is a a humanist religion, and im not an adherent, nor am i ignorant or stupid enough to believe in that fairy tale.
I’ll get right on it... just after I evolve some wings and a elephant trunk... You create a 747 out of nothing and then get back to me. think it through my friend
I don’t know what wings, a trunk, or a 747 have to do with anything (nor do I suspect you do either), but you were the one who asked about the evolution of eyes. I produced peer reviewed scientific articles discussing that - do with them what you will.
The world has followed the lie.

Stop believing the lie. Come out her my people.

Nice pictures, do you have the Disney fish to man movie too?

The simple answer is “no” - read the original article!
I’m surprise we haven’t crossed paths before! Give me a ping on these, and I’ll be sure to ping my ping list in the future. And if you would like to be on the HMS Creation ping list yourself, feel free to drop me a line.
All the best—GGG
Has there been much progress in computers in the past 25 years?
Ooops...that ping wasn’t just meant for just you, it was meant for the list! Here goes again...
Thanks for the ping!
'Ya had me going there, for a while...
Bottom feeders are the easiest type of fish to catch.
Many are "discards" though. It's a problem, all the way around.
Random mutation, plus eons of time, and who knows what one will come up with?
Now there’s something to look forward to!
I did. Now you read the ones I posted. Then we’ll talk.
All that’s needed is a chart with arrows and anything can be formed. A->Z no problem.
Sorry you missed them, but then again I wasn't talking to you, now was I?

NO cheers, unfortunately.
Those [expletive deleted] yankees just tied up the Series 1-1, a few hours ago.
Good ball club, for a bunch of....
I’m sorry. Were you talking to me?
One of the links discussed blind cave fish. Did you find whether it was loss or gain of gene function that accounted for the blindness and how?
Yes, hundreds of times.
Kind of like the creationist brain — what you don’t use, you lose.
Depends on whether you consider a 1000x increase in speed and 100000x increase in memory “progress”.
So, based on this article, you’re prepared to assert that God could not have created life with the ability to evolve an eye.
You would be surprised what evolution can produce given that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old.
A polymorphic self-replicating molecular program could could come up with a lot of different combinations in that amount of time.
You could say it has ... evolved.
Up until 4.2 billion years ago, the highest form of life was the amoeba, a one-celled creature.
The only way we progressed to humans is that the world is not perfect. If it were perfect, the amoeba would have never morphed into anything else.
And if the world were perfect, who would need to buy paper towels for spills?
Statues of tanuki can be found outside many Japanese temples and restaurants, especially noodle shops. These statues often wear big, cone-shaped hats and carry bottles of sake in one hand, and a promissory note or empty purse in the other hand. Tanuki statues always have large bellies. The statues also usually show humorously large testicles, typically hanging down to the floor or ground, although this feature is sometimes omitted in contemporary sculpture.
A common schoolyard song in Japan makes explicit reference to the tanuki's anatomy:
Tan Tan Tanuki no kintama wa, Kaze mo nai no ni, Bura bura
Roughly translated, this means, Tan-tan-tanuki's testicles, there isn't even any wind but still go swing-swing-swing.
It continues for several verses, with many regional variations. It is sung to the melody of an American Baptist hymn called "Shall We Gather At The River?".
Is Japan a great country, or what?
And computers did it all by themselves! No 'intelligence' involved here! /sarc
