Science

Eye Design Book
You may not agree with the author's basic premise that eye design as complex as that which exists in living creatures cannot be sufficiently explained by evolution, and thus is the work of a higher Eye Designer. But the meticulous detail and examples given about the eyes of all living creatures from the simplest to the most complex make this site endlessly fascinating. Interesting photos as well.
