How about Dawkins' book 'The Blind Watchmaker', while we're on the subject of the eye.
Here's an excerpt and a link:
Eyes don’t fossilize, so we don’t know how long our type of eye took to evolve its present complexity and perfection from nothing, but the time available is several hundred million years. Think, by way of comparison, of the change that man has wrought in a much shorter time by genetic selection of dogs. In a few hundreds, or at most thousands, of years we have gone from wolf to Pekinese, Bulldog, Chihuahua and Saint Bernard. Ah, but they are still dogs aren't they? They haven't turned into a different ‘kind’ of animal? Yes, if it comforts you to play with words like that, you can call them all dogs. But just think about the time involved. Let's represent the total time it took to evolve all these breeds of dog from a wolf, by one ordinary walking pace. Then, on the same scale, how far would you have to walk, in order to get back to Lucy and her kind, the earliest human fossils that unequivocally walked upright? The answer is about 2 miles. And how far would you have to walk, in order to get back to the start of evolution on Earth? The answer is that you would have to slog it out all the way from London to Baghdad. Think of the total quantity of change involved in going from wolf to Chihuahua, and then multiply it up by the number of walking paces between London and Baghdad. This will give some intuitive idea of the amount of change that we can expect in real natural evolution.
There are few problems in life that cannot be solved with toast.
One of them, however, is opening a can of corned beef with that stupid key. This cannot easily be done at the best of times, and toast is of surprisingly little use in resolving the issue.
What really happens when you give a monkey a gun.
We could all sit outside on banana lounges discussing the best way to rebuild a 4WD transmission and agree, through shared stories of conquests supporting our assertions, that there is no basis to the proposition that those least assured of their persuasions are the first to condemn others for theirs.

^ I still have my doubts. If Darwin was correct we wouldn't be seeing things like this...
^ 'twas a joke.
Come to think of it, I've never seen an ape do anything that stupid either.
I think perhaps the premises of both of the Creationist and Evolutionist theories may be wrong.
Might start a thread.
^^ Or lack of contraception, perhaps?
Let's put it this way ...
In "The Wild" ... that idiot would crack his head open, die ... and not pass on his genes.
In "Modern Society" ... that idiot would crack his head open, get free modern medical treatment, sick pay to support him ... and live to pass on his "Idiot genes"
The human race is doomed.
