My Year of Darwin 11/16/2014:That eye quote

 Charles Darwin

"To suppose that the eye, with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest possible degree. Yet reason tells me, that if numerous gradations from a perfect and complex eye to one very imperfect and simple, each grad being useful to its possessor, can be shown to exist." Charles Darwin, Origin of Species 1st edition (on Kindle)

The first part of this quote is the most common Darwin quote used by creationists. For some reason, they forget the other part. Silly creationists.
