Human Vision is Second Rate

Christians love to talk about the magnificence of human vision, allegedly the acme of Yahweh’s handiwork. Hubble looks at the heavens with far greater precision than the human eye. A hawk can see much better than we can. Lions can see much better in the dark that we can. Octopus have better designed eyes than we do. The human retina is defective because the nerves block the light. Bees can see UV; we cannot. Other animals got it right. What does that do for biblical Adam as apple of Yahweh’s eye?
