Can we see light?

Furyan5
DjDoug

Seeing is the conseptualizing of images and this occurs in the optic centre in the back of the brain. We see objects which emit, reflect, absorb or reflect light because our eyes detect light. Some animals like bats, dolphins and even some blind people can see using sound waves. We do not see light itself. We see images created by our minds, due to our rods and cones detecting light and converting this action into electrochemical signals....

I do not believe that humans a done evolving. The past 2.6 million years humans have used our brains effectively to make tools. we have changed physically with our bodies over the millennia so why wouldn't our brains. scientist have discovered that our minds have been expanding exponentially over the last 1/3 of our evolutionary timeline. the last 10,000 years are brains have apparently been getting smaller because of limited nutrition. But this is only the the size of the brain not its complexi...

The Judeo-Christian God will be the one that I attempt to apply the scientific method on....

Is it really that hard to think that the universe has no creator?...
