Top Evolutionary Inventions

This is an awesome article. An excerpt:

[Eyes] appeared in an evolutionary blink and changed the rules of life forever. Before eyes, life was gentler and tamer, dominated by sluggish soft-bodied worms lolling around in the sea. The invention of the eye ushered in a more brutal and competitive world. Vision made it possible for animals to become active hunters, and sparked an evolutionary arms race that transformed the planet.

Wow, that is a mind-bending article... "death" as a product of evolution? And yet, the way they describe it, it makes sense... very, very interesting.

You are all going to hell!!!
Everbody knows that God designed eyes and they've always been this way... sheesh...
As for death, well that's the price we paid for Adam eating the apple and listening to to his woman instead of making her submit like a proper husband should.
