If God created us, then why didn't he give us a perfect eye?

Yeah who knows what the dinosaurs were able to do before they were wiped out. It would be cool if we had speciated with lizard traits however we evolved outside that circle. You would think an intelligent designer would take something like that into account but it is what it is.

But not the ability to age backwards whenever you want to then age forwards again and then back virtual immortality. That has to be the coolest one I've seen. The immortal jellyfish.

So far people want to live forever, be immune to disease, be able to regenerate any injury, fly, climb walls, have perfect body parts that sense everything possible ....

Sounds like people want to be a god. Would such a creature be likely to worship the REAL God? If not, would it actually be better for us to be more perfect in this world if it meant a separation from God in the next?

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?




Let me tell you what those in the "know" think of your "god" and his claimed creations;

And to this day, [those] who...know the self as I am Brahman [IS-ness], become all this universe. 
Even the gods [any other dimensional beings] cannot prevent his becoming this, for he has become their Self. ...if a man worships another deity thinking: He is one and I am another, he  does not know. 
   
  He [who does not know] is like a sacrificial animal to the gods. As many animals serve a man, so does each man serve the gods. Even if one animal is taken away, it causes anguish to the owner; how much more so when many are taken away! 
     Therefore it is not pleasing to the gods that men should know this [that they are IS-ness].

Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, I.iv.10

Pretty sad to see that most of the people in this thread
don't have the first clue when it comes to appreciation
of what they have.

My eyes are perfect.



Thank you God.

Pretty, but a bit too fake. I always prefer more natural women.

Our eyes are perfect as it is. Why change something that doesn't need fixing? If it's problematic, then, attach side mirrors in front of your face. Problem solved.

Sure it did. It undermined the very basis of his belief system. If you had read my quote a bit closer, and had been a bit brighter, you might had understood the point I was making.

I don't think the bible will answer my question.


The eyes are better than any camera ever made. Here is a comparison between the eye and a camera made by man: LINK. As the link states, the brain is the fastest CPU on the planet. Combined, what more do you expect?

And what is his belief system, if you think Christian you should take another guess.

I don´t need to guess. I already offered a perfectly valid explanation, anyone with an average IQ can comprehend. . Not the sharpest knife in the drawer are you? .

By who, again? Entropy is a major and important feature of the universe we live in.

Is a Ferrari, which is designed and manufactured, perfect?

Maybe there are some things that God (if there is one) just doesn't want us to see!!

Who's to say that our eyes weren't perfect? Our eyes today may be a result of everything we consume, air pollution, etc.

When God said we were created 'good' or 'perfect' as some say, he meant in a way for us to live the lives we are meant to live. It does not mean perfect as in no flaws. Life would be too easy and imagine the destruction we would have caused to this planet if we had flawless bodies. We have already messed things up with our flawed bodies. He meant perfect as in we will still suffer trials and tribulations because of the state of our bodies but these 'imperfections' enable us to learn and develop more spiritually. If we were perfect in the way you have mis understood it we would consider ourselves to be godlike..this would be a disaster for us. We are perfect in a way to live our lives for better spiritual development. Remember the Bible tells us that this life is just the beginning....true life is yet to come (check out some after death experiences on youtube, most people said after death they felt 'more alive than they ever did'. When people ask 'why does God allow suffering'....its the same principle...to learn, to understand others, to learn compassion for those who suffer more than us, to do the right things....it helps create goodness in others.

The answers are in the Bible.....try reading it a bit more, you will get an understanding fairly quickly.

Peace.
