The Eye and God

The eye is a magnificent thing. In form and function it could scarcely have been better designed. It is almost perfect in it'sbeauty,  elegance, simplicity of style, and extraordinary usefulness. Only God could have designed the eye, one is tempted to say. The orbit, however, is quite another matter. The orbit was put together from apparently random bits of seven different bones which were strectched, obtruded, pinched, rounded, flattened and squeezed together to form a recipient that will, very roughly, allow the eye to sit in it. The orbit, like most of the skull, in fact, is a complete bloody mess.   

I offer this reflection for what it's worth.
