The lobster has eyes consisting of regular, square surfaces. These regular squares are in fact the front surfaces of square prisms. The inner surface of each of these prisms in the lobster eye has a mirrored surface that reflects light strongly. The light reflected from this surface is precisely focussed onto the retina located further back. All these prisms have been installed at such an angle that they reflect the light perfectly onto a single point. This sophisticated system has been functioning impeccably in all lobsters for hundreds of millions of years. Today"s lobsters use exactly the same system to see as those living 200 million years ago. This effectively refutes Darwinists, who claim that living things developed gradually.
