It depends on what you mean by happen. I can't make sense out of the idea
that the human brain is a special creation, seeing that it shares so much
in common with all vertibrates.

Actually, both sides argue 'just believe', which is your tactic when you
say the brain and eye cannot 'just happen.' Can you quantify that? Do you
have statistics that lead you to the conclusion? What are the facts that
suggest this interpretation?

Ahhh, that is Michelangelo. As in Michelangelo Buonarroti. At least, I
assume you are talking about the Italian artist of renoun.
