Scientists have released video of the deepest fish ever filmed while alive at a depth of nearly five miles. At that depth there is no light. None. Nada. Zilch. It is as dark as the darkest cave.
And yet these fish have eyes. Unlike the Texas blind salamander which has non-functioning eyes embedded in its ehad, the eyes on Pseudoliparis amblystomopsis are clearly visible. As far as I can tell no one knows if Pseudoliparis amblystomopsis is actually blind or not, but either way it is yet another body-blow to the theory of "intelligent" design. Why give eyes, working or not, to a creature that lives where there is no light?
