Seeing Colors

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we see why evolution is powerless to explain our ability to see colors.


The normal human eye detects color, using principles similar to those used by our color television. On the millions of cone‑shaped cells in the retina there are three kinds of light‑absorbing molecules. Each of these three molecules absorbs only one of the primary colors – red, green or blue. How could “natural forces” have accidentally stumbled onto the very principal of physics upon which color rests?

The sensitivity required for color vision is also astounding. There is only 75‑millionths of a meter difference between the wavelengths of blue and green light. This size difference is so small that it could not be noticed even under the most powerful light microscope. Yet, the eye has no trouble at all detecting the difference. Clearly, you’d have to be blind to believe that our eyes were not designed!
