Here's more about the owl, a highly specialized night hunter, that evidences intelligent design. The shape of owl eyes is unique. As discussed above, owls can rotate their head 270 degrees. The owl eye anatomy and physiology is more evidence that the ability to rotate 270 degrees laterally and 90 degrees up and down could not have "evolved".

WHY? Because the owl head must rotate that much to work in concert with the owl eyes. They work ONLY as a unit. You see, the owl eyes are fixed in position. They cannot move.

They are also elongated to enhance night vision by concentrating the rods along the elongated tube design.

So, the head, the fixed eye position, the elongated eye shape that concentrates the rods for even more superior night vision than would be possible with the same rod count (if the eye was movable and rounded) that enables night vision AND the vertebra in the neck to avoid pinching off blood flow all work as a unit.

All the separate biological anatomical parts of this unit simply would not make sense in the absence of all the others. With eyes that are fixed in the head, the head HAD to be able to turn so many degrees. The vertebra HAD to be designed to allow normal blood flow during extreme head rotation or there would be no advantage to the fixed binocular eyes and 270 neck rotation.

What's more, the differential ear position, combined with the fixed position of the binocular eyes, though not discussed below, obviously aids the owl in postioning its body properly to strike at the prey as it swoops down after pinpointing the prey's location. You see, the strike of an owl has been measured at 12 times its body weight. It is essential for the owl to be in exactly the right position to avoid injuring itself when it strikes the prey and the ground. The video below shows some owls in action. Notice how the head and the talons are always in the same position relative to each other when the strike occurs.


Though not obvious to the casual observer, owls can only strike that hard in a narrowly defined body position in order to avoid injury to themselves. That is how they are able to kill their prey so quickly.   

To claim all this magnificent chorus of mutually reinforcing abilities "evolved" by chance, when they all had to be there at the same time to work properly, is pseudo-scientific Darwinian straw grasping baloney.

An owl friend of mine has a few words to say to the Darwinist true believers:

What’s Unique about an Owl’s Eyesight?

Owls can rotate their heads about 270 degrees in either direction, and up and down about 90 degrees, without moving their shoulders. This maneuverability is key to their ability to spot prey, especially when you consider that an owl doesn’t have eyeballs. Their eyes are shaped more like tubes, and are held rigidly in place by bones called sclerotic rings. Their eyes consist of densely packed retinal rods -- about a million rods per square millimeter -- which help them see in all kinds of light conditions.

The eyes have it:

Owls are farsighted, and they can’t focus on objects that are very close. Whisker-like bristles located near their beaks help them detect objects at close range.

Owls have binocular vision. Binocular vision is the ability to see an object with both eyes, at the same time. This visual acuity increases the owl’s depth perception.

Owls have three eyelids. The upper eyelid closes downward when the owl blinks, and the lower eyelid closes up when the owl sleeps. The third eyelid provides translucent protection, moving horizontally while still allowing the owl to see.
