Matt tagged me.

The Rules:-
Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. (No cheating!)
Find Page 123.
Find the first 5 sentences.
Post the next 3 sentences.
Tag 5 people.

Title: The Design Matrix by Mike Gene

Sentences 6, 7,& 8 of page 123: "The picture is drawn such that either animal can be see and is inherently ambiguous. Perhaps the duck/rabbit image can assist us in expanding our thinking about the concepts of both design and evolution. Evolution is supported by a vast amount of evidence."
