An eye needs several components to to function properly so apparently all of these things evolved along with each other. Because an iris itself would do no good. But then how did these components "know" to evolve together? Was there a sub eyeball at one point?

And why require two parties to reproduce? Would not one party be more effective? In addition to that something like sex would be nearly impossible to have evolved.

Eyes started as small patches of light sensitive skin. Then they became more intricate and able to pick up shapes and colors. Unfortunately, at this point they were very vulnerable to damage, so crude skin covers formed over them. These became eyelids. Eventually the "eye" became separate from the skin surrounding it, and muscles formed to allow it movement.

Male/female mating allowed for greater specialization within the species. Mating pairs had an advantage against predators. While one was weighed down with offspring, the other could defend it. Gradually this caused the formation of two different types best suited for their roles.

Oh good Eerie's back. Will he listen this time around?

Even the most primitive vision (basic sensation of light/dark) is an obvious advantage wherever light is present, and anything slightly better is a greater advantage still, so it turns out that eyes evolve rather easily, starting as simple patches of light-sensitive proteins on the skin, then a protective transparent layer of skin above, which is repurposed in future generations as a lens, and so forth. Eyes are so easily produced through evolution that there is even a species of fish with a second pair of eyes that evolved from scratch on their own, rather than just duplicating the existing pair.

On the other hand, the blind cave fish, living in a lightless environment, has complex eyes, but they are completely covered to protect the useless eyes from injury. The blind cave fish's eyes have an easy evolutionary explanation (the eyes are vestiges of light-dwelling ancestors), but represent a ridiculous and unnecessary design flaw for anyone suggesting the blind cave fish was simply created "as-is".

How do you people find these threads to necro, anyway? Are you digging around for hot topics down in the trash heaps of FAF or something?

Oh, and that granny email website had the best blonde joke of all time.
Joe Namath, a black guy, and a blonde walk into a bar. The bartender looks at the three of them and cocks his head at the sight of such an unusual trio.

"Uh, what can I get you?", he asks.

Joe Namath says, "I'll have a shot of tequila, and keep 'em coming."

"You got it, sir. How about you, black guy?"

The black guy orders something.

"And you?", he asks the blonde.

The blonde crosses her eyes and replies, "DURRR! HURRR! PHHBBT REEEOW!" while smacking herself in the forehead, then she has sex with everyone.
