Quote# 3445

They say that this fish evolved from having eyes to having no eyes, becuse down their on the ocean floor there is no light, so the eyes became a vestigial structure and eventually disappeared altogether. they say that is proof for evolution. well, show me a fossilized fish with half an eyeball.

How about a tapeworm that can just barely detect light? How's one-sixteenth of an eyeball for ya?

Coming to the same argument from both sides of stupid.

You ever see some of the things living on the ocean floor? With their lack of sight and color? Didn't think so.

I'm sure there are some creatures out there with eyepimples.

I saw a fish someone hit with a speedboat. One eye was gored pretty bad.

Does that count?

Weird thing about genetic mutations: sometimes, things just disappear. You don't have half-organs, but it's pretty fucking clear that it's possible to be born without something, eyes included, hence the fact that the condition has its own fucking name.

I can show you a one-eyed Trouser Trout.

@snowbeast I remember studying that in sixth grade when we were studying deap-sea creatures. Yeah, that's pretty much what half an eye looks like.

In addition, half a wing looks like the skin flaps on a flying squirrel. Bats would have looked kind of like that before evolving full-blown wings (except that they're in their own order and not rodents like squirrels).
