Dilemmas over Origin of Complex Organs     


The difficulty does not stop with the origin of life. Consider such body organs as the eye, the ear, the brain. All are staggering in their complexity far more than the most intricate man-made device. A problem for evolution has been the fact that all parts of such organs have to work together for sight, hearing or thinking to take place. Such organs would have been useless until all the individual parts were completed.


So the question arises: Could chance that is thought to be a driving force of evolution have brought all these parts together at the right time to produce such elaborate mechanisms? Darwin

acknowledged this as a problem, "To suppose that the eye could have been formed by evolution, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree." More than a century has passed since then. Has the problem been solved? No. On the contrary, since Darwin's time what has been learned about the eye shows that it is even more complex than he understood it to  be. Thus Jastrow said: "The eye appears to have been designed; no designer of telescopes could have done better."
