When planting beans does it make any difference if the eye is facing up or down?

Makes no difference at all. Plants are designed with the ability to sense gravity and most seeds will send the roots down and the shoots up, no matter the way they are planted. Even the plants (and beans are not one of them) that do better when planted a certain direction will figure it out. It just takes them a little longer to break the surface than if they were planted the right direction.
