Now, to get the point, you need to realize that the huntsman spider has been an evolution puzzle before. But get this: From “And Then There Was Light! Discovery of the World’s First Eyeless Huntsman Spider” (Science Daily, Aug. 9, 2012), we One species manages to live without eyes:,
With a leg span of only six centimetres and a body size of around twelve millimetres, the spider Sinopoda scurion is certainly not one of the largest representatives of the huntsman spiders, which include more than 1100 species. However, it is the first of its kind in the world without any eyes.
“I found the spider in a cave in Laos, around 100 kilometres away from the famous Xe Bang Fai cave,” reports Peter Jäger, head of the arachnology section at the Senckenberg Research Institute in Frankfurt. “We already knew of spiders of this genus from other caves, but they always had eyes and complete pigmentation. Sinopoda scurion is the first huntsman spider without eyes.”
No, of course it doesn’t prove Darwin’s theory. Losing a faculty but still surviving does not prove Darwin’s theory. Much as Darwin’s followers would like it to. It shows that life forms can lose capabilities but not that they can gain them via Darwin’s theory.
