Indeed, the components that encompass the realm of sensory and perception demonstrate that not only are human beings an enormously complex supersystem, but that we are indeed the handiwork of a creator.

To be such a well-balanced organism, indeed indicates intelligent design. And when examining some of the processes and functions behind the senses, David’s statement becomes graspable. As an illustration, photoreceptors reside in the area…
