    It gets me how insects and animals just know what they are supposed to do after birth and all then there is us humans who struggle to figure anything out but everything is expected of us

    They are arguing about the use of its eyes. Why could it not be for all over the mentioned uses?

    In all species males take pains to look good for the ladies. Except in humans.
