But are our eyes really that perfect?
Our eyes are not perfect, one of it's faults is that it has a Blind Spot. The eye of an octopus doesn't have this problem. If our nerve fibers and
our retina changed positions then our eyes would be better designed and we wouldn't have the blind spot.
If god created us, then why did he give the octopus better eyes?
Why can't we fly? Why can't I hear beyond the range I am set to hear? Why can't I breathe under water? Why does a fish get to extract oxygen
from the water? Why am I restricted by law?
This man had a blind spot.
9 As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. 2 His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born
3 “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him. 4 As long as it
is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. 5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
We are currently restricted to settings that are predetermined. Additionally, we are governed by laws that are our guardians. Sight with eyes is not
our only vision of the world. We can also see with the mind. Why did God make it this way and not another?
Children of God
23 Before the coming of this faith,[j] we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed. 24 So the
law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith. 25 Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian.
26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 If you belong to
Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
A good comparison is to a child. Why doesn't a child think abstract until around 12 years old? The answer is obvious. Development requires this
restriction. Why can't you see when a light is shined directly in your eyes? What if it is diffused for a time, then gradually increased? What
happens when you emerge from a cave into directly sunlight? Again, the answer is by comparison to nature.
If you cannot see what I am saying today, or even yesterday's tomorrow, then wait a day. Today is tomorrows yesterday. There's still time and you
will eventually see if you think on what is said. All things have a purpose.
Keep questioning your answers.
