Trilobite Eyeshade

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

Scientists discovered an exquisitely designed eye mechanism in an ancient marine animal that provides evidence for supernatural creation. The trilobite dates back to the Cambrian explosion (543 million years ago) and possesses a multi-lens system offering the trilobite a continuous 360° view of the sea floor. This eye comes equipped with a sophisticated eyeshade that “protects the visual surface from glare derived from surface light.” Such elegant, creative design implies a Creator.
