The Eye Argument

Ever had a christian use the old "a god must exist because we have complex organs like the eye that could not have just evolved by itself"...? Well, just about any advanced biology/zoology student would laugh at that argument, but not all atheists have that training. So, next time they use that argument, show them this video. It's missing some details and would be better if it showed examples (nematodes with eye spots, protofish simple eyes, etc.), but this is the best straight-forward explanation I have found. It also features Gould (a superstar in the world of evolutionary biology) and Liam Neeson's voice (Qui-Gon Jinn from Star Wars Ep. 1).

If there are any other common christian arguments that you'd like ammo to counter, just let me know and I'll do my best.

Other atheist multimedia:

If you haven't seen "The God That Wasn't There", it is excellent and a must for all atheists (especially those who were raised christians).
