OK, here goes.

If we evolved from monkeys, why do we still have eyes?
Archaeologists have never found a half-lizard, half-horse fossil.

There ya go folks. Yet more proof that Campo doesn't read the links that are provided for his education. If he had, he would not have had to ask the question because the answer is in the article.

So your saying hearing is so simple, we should nolonger see deaf people walking around?
Education is so simple too, yet we still see people like you walking around. Get my point old mate?

Bionic Eyes Benefit the Blind

Quote:
Earlier this year, three people were successfully implanted with a permanent "retinal prosthesis" by researchers at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. Each patient wore spectacles with miniature video cameras that transmitted signals to a 4-mm-by-5-mm retinal implant via a wireless receiver embedded behind the ear.
The device works by transmitting visual signals captured by the video camera to the retinal implant, which contains an array of 16 electrodes. The signal is then recreated by stimulating the remaining healthy retinal cells with the electrodes, which pass on the information to the brain through the optic nerve.
Cochlear Implants

Quote:
A cochlear implant is very different from a hearing aid. Hearing aids amplify sounds so they may be detected by damaged ears. Cochlear implants bypass damaged portions of the ear and directly stimulate the auditory nerve. Signals generated by the implant are sent by way of the auditory nerve to the brain, which recognizes the signals as sound. Hearing through a cochlear implant is different from normal hearing and takes time to learn or relearn. However, it allows many people to recognize warning signals, understand other sounds in the environment, and enjoy a conversation in person or by telephone.

Oh please Rafius. A lens implant to correct the eye is a long way from making an eye. And your whole arguement was that an eye is simple. If it's simple, forget the lens implant and make a real human eye. That lens implant, is just one step away from wearing a pair of glasses.

Scientists who have made progress in any field of study often want to present their work to the scientific community by writing a paper and submitting it to a scientific journal. Scientific journals contain papers that have been peer reviewed in order to establish their credibility and to keep a high standard in scientific publications. If there are scientists who have discovered solid evidence that can be demonstrated following the scientific method that creationism has a foundation based on fact why don't they present this evidence to the scientific community in the same manner that other scientists do? There are countless scientific journals on any topic you can think of in which professional scientists present their work following a rigorous set of established guidelines. I would think that if any scientist could really lay out all of the evidence they've discovered that proves the earth is only a few thousand years old and that mankind has descended from Adam and Eve that they'd be chomping at the bit to get it published because they'd be in Nobel Prize country. Contrary to what creationists are always saying about science it's clear that scientists thrive on controversy and overthrowing a previously accepted idea because a new one can be shown to be more plausible is what scientists do. That's how progress is made. So why hasn't anyone presented the scientific evidence for creationism and published it in a scientific journal?
Strict Creationism (6K yr old earth stuff & Adam+Eve) aside..."creation" theories HAVE been presented...by scientists that were inclined to a "theological leaning".

Like this guy, that you might be familiar with:
Monsignor Georges Henri Joseph Édouard Lemaître--he figured out that "Big Bang" concept/theory for the CREATION of the universe.
But then, of course, he had a "jump" on it since he had already studied the foundation for his theory as he studied to be a PRIEST.

Why hasn't an evolutionist provide proof that life didn't begin from a creator?

Yet YEC would have us believe we went from about 8 people because of Noahs flood to over 6 billion in around 6000 years.
