what possible evolutionary advantage cold this hold


Why would it need an evolutionary advantage at all? You seem to have it the wrong way round, there would need to have been an evolutionary disadvantage for it to have been removed - but again that is a huge oversimplification of evolution.

Now, I admit that, faced with something startling, closing one's eyes may well have not been a good idea if the thing doing the startling is a sabre-toothed tiger Smile | :)
