    Darwin said in his book Origin of Species “To suppose the eye with its inimitable contrivances for adjusting focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light and the correction of spherical and chromatic aberrations could have been formed by Natural Selection, I freely admit ABSURD in the highest degree”

    How could he possibly admit to that and still believe in his theory of Evolution?
