Because we were intelligent enough to make sunglasses, thus our eyes never evolved fully. Or because Jesus didn't think we would be stupid enough to stare right at it.
Hurt our eyes as in makes us squint.

If Sol is the sun that humans evolved beneath...then why aren't our bodies suited for it? Why do we squint from the light from our own sun. And why does mere exposure to our sun burn our skin and cause deadly mutations in the form of cancer. How does that even make sense...to have evolved so that our environment is toxic to us?


Are you mentally challenged??

If we grew up on earth how come falls from a cliff kill us!?!?!?!?! How come fire kills us??? Why does not breathing oxygen kill us!?!?!?!?!!? REEEEEEE

Seriously this was so stupid you should be sent back to high school.

What's worse is some morons seem to agree with you/ gave you stars.

Jesus wept.
That isn't how physics or evolution works. But you know that....I guess.

I have an answer. May not apply to you... alien weirdo. Go home! Dont take my jerb!


I am a predator. I need my night vision. Bright lights like the sun make me squint. I also have a bit of melanin. I am not an alien. I also didnt evolve from anything, but if I did it sure as hell wasnt a monkey or fish or frog.

Well maybe given enough time, someday you will evolve. And even if you don't, I'm sure you're fine just the way you are.


Maybe Im the one who is evolved .

I’m guessing you gave yourself your name?

What animals have you seen look directly at the sun? Do you honestly think that just because an animal is outside that it looks at the sun? Or is it because it was facing in the same direction? That’s ridiculous.

Watched and admired and respected silently for like and eon Phage -

Never disagreed only learned from you.

But how does a Tsunami like that of Indonesia figure in - Did the earthquake kill them people or the sea ?

Just asking no intentions to offend.

The sea doesn’t directly kill anyone. If you had adequate supplies of food and water you could bob around in the sea for days. Indirect causes of death would be failing to learn to swim, deadly predators, natural disasters and, strangely enough, exposure to the sun.

The sun, on the other hand, can kill you directly, on its own, without any help.

Sorry but i still beg to differ

The Sea does kill.

Evolution does not mean perfection.
It means survival long enough to reproduce. No more. No less.


On the other hand, did God screw up?


My cat Roger sits in the Texas sun every morning as it rises and bathes our front windows in light...
He squints or keeps his eyes closed while he basks in the rays....for hours

Is my cat also an alien?
Yes. The answer is yes...
Also, God screwed up by not letting me fly....

If you saw my list, which is not expansive, I included natural disasters. Stay on top of the wave or dive underneath it.

Can you point me to your evidence that rough waves are caused by a natural disaster - ?
Thought they were ubiquitous in nature ......


No need to get rude now is there - sub

Let me know when you’ve learned the meanings of direct and indirect so we can then continue our conversation.

eyes have evolved from " light sensitive " cells
...

Far-fetched 'just-so' stories like that are not helpful. The process of accidental mutations acted upon by so-called "natural selection" (the proposed cause) does not have the effect you are describing in your just-so story. This has been well established in mutation research, mutation breeding (by inducing mutations in living organisms) and regular breeding experiments and efforts (for thousands of years of breeding by humans). From which one can extrapolate a degenerative destructive process over the long term (millions of years) that obeys or follows the 2nd law of thermodynamics and contradicts the direction proposed in the just-so story where this process supposedly goes in the opposite direction from simpler "light sensitive" cells to fully operational eyes and the required interdependent machinery in the brain to interpret and process the input (a constructive process rather than a destructive process), not to mention the interdependent connections between the processing center, the brain, and the eyes (built from various specialized nerve cells and other cell types). All of which are required for eyesight and should probably not be overlooked or neglected in any storyline or explanation proposed to explain the origin and development of this trait that tries to circumvent the common sense conclusion of this technological feature being the product of engineering and programmed automated assembly (or in other words, the product/effect of engineering and programming, which would be the causal factors).

Of course, I'm not expecting you to care or acknowledge that the facts I'm referring to above demonstrate your just-so story to be incorrect, highly implausible bordering on the impossible (at least impossible regarding your proposed process of accidental mutations acted upon by so-called "natural selection", i.e. "eyes have evolved", even though you didn't spell it out like I just did, that's what your mantra-style phrase boils down to); but for those interested in a few details regarding the myth of evolving eyes from light sensative cells, check out some of the things said below from 9:18 - 13:04:

For those more interested in mantras defined as:

1. (originally in Hinduism and Buddhism) a word or sound repeated to aid concentration in meditation. a Vedic hymn.; 2. a statement or slogan repeated frequently.

2 definitions from google that share much in common, and is quite fitting when one is thinking about the origin of evolutionary philosophies being rooted in Greek and Hindu or Eastern religious pagan philosophy involving pantheism and mother nature worship, and the general notion that 'nature did it', 'life finds a way', 'it or ... evolved', etc. (attributing godlike powers of highly sophisticated and technologically advanced nano-engineering and programming to mindless molecules and natural forces):

Maybe you need to make up your mind. First you say you didn't evolve...now you've decided maybe you did. I believe the jury's still out on that one.

I never implied that anyone or anything was looking directly at the sun. Hurt...as in causing discomfort and making one squint. I just saw a squirrel running along a utility line, carrying a nut in its mouth, in the bright sunlight with its eyes wide open....where as my neighbor standing outside talking to another neighbor is noticeably squinting and the other neighbor is wearing sunglasses.
Oh, and I suppose you won your screen name in a raffle?

Not many animals can squint - they don’t have the muscles for that. Instead they have much more dynamic pupils. Why are you trying to force human traits into animals?

Because we didn't evolve to stare at the sun.

My point wasn't why don't animals squint...but rather why we do. Why didn't we evolve to have some of those dynamic pupils?
