Scientists have examined the ability of the human eye to detect single photons. It turns out that they can. Previously it was thought that the eye could detect as few as five to seven, but the present study shows that they human eye is capable of detecting a single photon: this is really a remarkable feat.
Here’s what one of the authors had to say:
“If you imagine this, it is remarkable: a photon, the smallest physical entity with quantum properties of which light consists, is interacting with a biological system consisting of billions of cells, all in a warm and wet environment,” says Vaziri. “The response that the photon generates survives all the way to the level of our awareness despite the ubiquitous background noise. Any man-made detector would need to be cooled and isolated from noise to behave the same way.”
Wow. “Nature” is really something. Through trial and error, it built this high-tech system. Actually, I don’t think even high-tech scientists could do this given the constraints of living organisms.
Isn’t it amazing how “nature” can build a system of vision that not even high-tech scientists can duplicate? And to imagine that Trilobytes had amazing vision systems back in the Cambrian. Boy, evolution sure can work fast!
The level of “faith” in Darwinism, or, essentially it’s equivalent, “materialism,” is light years beyond what religious people are required to have.
