Dear Next Level:
Dear me! Do I have to go into this question? After all: what is the Internet good for if it isn’t to find the answers for oneself? Just be entering Google and typing +”human eye” +”evolution” we get an enormous amount of information on the development of the eye (and all the other living beings, organs, etc. for that matter), for example:
Of course I could have started from there but by the time I was working on my writing “Ayn Rand, I and the Universe” I had behind me some four decades of reading books on the matter of which I just mention a very few, to say nothing of Darwin, of course: Isaac Asimov’s (to me, one of the greatest geniuses that ever existed) “Asimov’s New Guide to Science” and “The Wellsprings of Life” as well as most of his other books (yes, Science-Fiction too), scientific essays and articles, “The Language of Life” by George and Muriel Beadle (Beadle was Nobel Price in Medicine of 1958 and his book is very, very good, with one exception shich is not necessary to be mentioned here), Hoimar von Ditfurth’s “Im Anfang war der Wasserstoff” (“At the Beginning stands Hydrogen”) and “Der Geist fiel nicht vom Himmel” (“The Spirit did not descend from heaven”), and, and, and…
From one of the Internet pages above I quote:” As Charles Darwin would agree, the eye is indeed the result of an acceptable evolutionary process by gradual increase in complexity of a photoreceptor that changed one day into an awe-inspiring organ. Darwin himself said: “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory (natural selection) would absolutely break down, but I can find no such case."
But this goes far beyond what should be said. I by myself think that Ethan Dawe gave the shortest and most precise answer to your question. The question of Evolution, which is grounded directly on reality, has long been settled, as the “Monkey Trial” (1927, there’s a good picture of it by Spencer Tracy and Frederic March: “Inherit the Wind”) showed.
Good Internet surfing wishes Manfred.
