    Did you know Darwin said, "The sight of a feather in a peacock's tail, whenever I gaze at it, makes me sick!" He wrote this to botanist Asa Gray on April 3, 1860. You can't blame Darwin for feeling frustrated by those feathers. How the extravagant plumage evolved is very hard to explain. It certainly didn't give the peacock an advantage in hiding or fleeing from predators! This led Darwin to postulate a new type of natural selection: sexual selection. He assumed that the females must prefer males with the most beautiful tail feathers. Sounds good in theory, but what about in real life? University of Tokyo researchers tested the theory and found, to their surprise, that females mated with drab-tailed peacocks as often as with flashy males! Results were published in the April 2008 issue of Animal Behaviour. Peacock feathers are only one of many chinks in the evolutionists' arguments. Darwin was also stymied by the human eye. "To suppose," he admitted, "that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances…could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree" (Origin of Species, p. 146).
