This is the big escape hatch for the cognoscenti (people supposedly in the know). If you ask an eye doctor with a Ph.D. how the eye was formed, he’ll say by chance over millions of years. I say give nothingness a billion years, and it will not come within a fraction of an inch of the eye, be it human or that of a gnat.
I’ll take you back to the Big Bang. Before it exploded, there was nothing, absolutely nothing. Some scientists with a little sense now say there was a small atom or kernel with possibly minute particles embedded in it. (Ah, at last someone admits things have a cause, an origin.) Then it exploded and the universe was born, at least from an atom if not a Creator.
Yes, since then everything has a cause, and a creator if there’s human or animal involvement. Even the dice, were we able to measure the angle at which they fell and the ergs with which they were thrown, have a cause. But we have ignoramuses who maintain there is no Creator. Sort of lets them off the hook of showing gratitude for a great show.
