“I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause: Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number:”
Behold the amazing cuatro ojos – the four-eyed fish! At first glance, you would say it has just two eyes. But look closer and you’ll see that each eye is divided into two separate eyes!
According to the book 1000 Wonders of Nature, “Light from the world above the water passes through the width of the egg-shaped lens, which gives very good long-distance vision. While swimming just below the water’s surface, the fish can simultaneously check the world above for predators, such as birds, while viewing the surface and depths below for food.”
Evolutionists at one website point out that the fish’s “two large, bulbous eyes are positioned on the upper side of the head” and are “split horizontally into two sections by a band of tissue. The upper lobe is flattened while the lower lobe is rounded, allowing it to see clearly both above and below water.” The lens of the eye also changes in thickness from top to bottom to deal with the different refractive indices of air and water.
Despite the obvious design features of these eyes, evolutionists can’t see it because they are blinded by their atheistic worldview. Without evidence of any sort, they say that the eyes “evolved specifically for the purpose of exploiting the narrow ecological niche between aquatic and terrestrial habitats.”
Evolutionists are completely in the dark when it comes to explaining how such a primitive creature as the cuatro ojos came to have such complex eyes. Creationists are not in the dark about it. They accept that those eyes were created that way.
Heavenly Father, thank You for giving me eyes to see Your marvelous creation and for giving me the faith to know that it was all created by Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
