Darwinian Hopes Dashed against the Eyes of Trilobites

Trilobite Eodiscus punctatus [1]

Darwin was hoping to show that complex eyes evolved from simple eyes. [2]

However, trilobites buried in some of the lowest sedimentary rocks had very complex compound eyes (though, some trilobites had no eyes at all).

Trilobites come from nowhere. They have no evolutionary prehistory. They are found very close to the bottom of the fossil record. And still, they are already equipped with the outstandingly complex optics! 

This fact obstinately testifies to creation of trilobites and the complete inadequacy of Darwinism.

[2] "To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances … could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree. …

Reason tells me, that if numerous gradations from a simple and imperfect eye to one complex and perfect can be shown to exist, each grade being useful to its possessor, as is certainly the case …then the difficulty of believing that a perfect and complex eye could be formed by natural selection, though insuperable by our imagination, should not be considered as subversive of the theory."
