A Half-Developed Eye Cannot See
comes to your mind first when you hear the word ‘eye'? Are
you aware that one of the most crucial things in life for
you is your ability to see? Even if you are, have you ever
thought what other signs your eye bears?
The eye is one of the most manifest pieces of evidence that
living creatures are created. All sight organs, including
animal eyes and the human eye, are extremely striking examples
of a perfect design. This exceptional organ is so overwhelmingly
complex that it surpasses even the most sophisticated devices
in the world.
In order for an eye to see, all of its parts have to co-exist
and work in harmony. For instance, if an eye happened to have
lost its eyelid, but still had all the other parts such as
the cornea, conjunctiva, iris, pupil, eye lenses, retina,
choroid, eye muscles, and tear glands, it would still be greatly
damaged and soon lose its seeing function. In the same manner,
even if all its organelles were present, if the tear production
were stopped, the eye would soon dry out and become blind.
‘The chain of coincidences' posited by evolutionists loses
all its meaning against the complex structure of the eye.
It is not possible to explain the existence of the eye other
than as a matter of special creation. The eye has a multi-sectioned
complex system and, as discussed above, all of these individual
sections had to come into existence at the same time. It is
impossible for a half-developed eye to function at ‘half capacity'.
In such a circumstance, the act of seeing can by no means
take place. An evolutionist scientist admits to this truth:
The common trait of the eyes and the wings is that they can
only function if they are fully developed. In other words,
a halfway-developed eye cannot see; a bird with half-formed
wings cannot fly.
In this case, we again face that very important question:
who created all of the components of the eye all at once?
The owner of the eyes is obviously not the one who makes
the decision about their formation. For it is impossible for
a being devoid of the knowledge of what seeing is like, to
desire to have a seeing organ and have it attached to his
body. So we have to accept the existence of a Possessor of
superior Wisdom Who has created living beings with senses
such as seeing, hearing, and so on. Another claim is that
unconscious cells gained consciousness-requiring functions
such as seeing and hearing by their own desire and effort.
It is very clear that this is impossible. In the Qur'an, it
is stated that seeing has been bestowed upon living beings
Say: He it is Who brought you into being and made
for you the ears and the eyes and the hearts: little is
it that you give thanks. (Qur'an, 67: 23)
