Creationists like to point to the human eye as proof of God’s work and perfection.
They claim something that complicated couldn’t have just happened and that complexity is not reducible. This is utter rubbish and nonsense, and reducing complexity into simpleness is the allegory, metaphor, allusion, simile process to cliche points, which is so truthful that we seek to ignore it.
Octopuses have way better eyesight than humans, most creatures can in fact, see hear and smell more than we do. Plus, most have some form of defense and offence, which Humans have just the one really – the brain controlled brawn. Lizard brain survival, Ape Brain thrival and the Human Cortex where the quantum calculations are done, possibility and probability, what we see, or envision to be, where there is none to see, seeing, sawing, sawn…
From single celled to multi-cells, creatures with organ systems, the skeleton inside or out, adaptions to environment and niche occupying, which is why there are so many variations on themes, divergent evolution, while effective forms repeat in water, land and air mediums.

Religion claims a status of being a social good generally and then allowing for a bizarre interfaith equalism of we’re all really equal but different, with “fundamentalist literalness” being confused for the bad violent side, despite being the devoutest with the cherry picking moderates who claim various cherry picking methods of apologists when it’s embarrassing or burdensome and sliding into spiritual, just cultural community practices, no one really takes it that seriously as if those are real believers, when they are practically as the infidels and pagans and heretics.
Spirituality is more the neo-paganist romantic drum beating while wearing a crystal and pyramid hat to cleanse my chakras before my hot yoga class. Spirituality is where people who don’t want to pay to be a member, create their own personalized religion, which is just as valid as one invented by anyone else, regardless of how long their ideas have been recycled….
