How Far Can the Human Eye See?

The Earth’s surface curves out of sight at a distance of 3.1 miles, or 5 kilometers. But our visual acuity extends far beyond the horizon. If Earth were flat, or if you were standing atop a mountain surveying a larger-than-usual patch of the planet, you could perceive bright lights hundreds of miles distant. On a dark night, you could even see a candle flame flickering up to 30 mi. (48 km) away.

  1. How does evolution explain the complexity of the human eye? IT CAN’T. If the complexity and subtlety of the human eye is not indicative of an Intelligence necessary to design it, then there is no sense talking to those people!

    • .
      The human eye is made up of 30 parts: 1. vitreous body 2. ora serrata 3. ciliary muscle 4. ciliary zonules 5. Schlemm’s canal 6. pupil 7. anterior chamber 8. cornea 9. iris 10. lens cortex 11. lens nucleus 12. ciliary process 13. conjunctiva 14. inferior oblique muscle 15. inferior rectus muscle 16. medial rectus muscle 17. retinal arteries and veins 18. optic disc 19. dura mater 20. central retinal artery 21. central retinal vein 22. optic nerve 23. vorticose vein 24. bulbar sheath 25. macula 26. fovea 27. sclera 28. choroid 29. superior rectus muscle 30. retina
      Each of the 30, e.g., the iris, is itself a complex biological phenomenon comprised of many intricacies. And yet evolutionists would have us believe every one of the 30 parts somehow independently evolved — even though there can’t possibly be a survival or natural selection reason for the existence of a pupil by itself — then came together to form the human eye!
      It’s amazing how many beliefs it takes for their non-belief in an Intelligent Designer. [Smirk]

    • I know Steven….”those” people believe that you can rip up a dictionary…or better yet…millions of alphabetic letters, throw them up in the air..and the Great American Novel comes down all in one piece…….ready to read…. .NOT! What kind of “logic” informs them??????

  2. Steven, I agree completely.

  3. wow, the picture of this eye looks like a storm coming! beautiful!
