Seeing and the Brain

We know the basics of vision, how light is reflected off an object, it reaches our eyes and we see the object. The intricate design of the human eye testifies about the genius of the Master Engineer, but receiving light into our eyes is not the end of the story of sight.

There is a great deal more to seeing something than having light enter the eye. The Master Engineer made the eyes and brain to work together.

Like facts and evidence, what has been received must be interpreted. Have you ever looked at the clouds and noticed shapes? Perhaps you were with a friend and each of you saw a different shape until you pointed out the features. Then it changed into something else because of air currents. Your brain was at work trying to make sense of something, often drawing from what you know and have seen in the past.

The way the brain makes sense of actual images is quite amazing and is a complex process. We take in colors, patterns, shadows, and all sorts of things. Many parts of the eye and brain are involved, as well as electrical and chemical activities that evolutionists cannot adequately explain.

If you’ve ever visited a zoo, you’ve probably experienced this frustration.

Such occasional challenges remind us just how good our eyes really are. Day in and day out, we recognize thousands of objects without thinking about it. Even when a creature’s skin color is specifically designed to thwart our prying eyes, we still can spot it—with a little extra effort.

The best computers don’t even get close to human visual perception. God uniquely designed human brains to perceive the world around us. But don’t be fooled. “Perceiving” is not as easy as it looks.
