The irreducibly complex system in the ear is something that

evolutionists can never satisfactorily explain. When we look at the theories

evolutionists occasionally propose, we are met by a facile and superficial

logic. For example, the writer Veysel Atayman, who translated the book Im


inner walls
of the cochlea
in the inner ear are
lined with tiny hairs.
These move in line
with the wave motion
set up in the liquid in the
inner ear by vibrations
coming from outside. In this
way, the electrical balance of
the cells to which the hairs are
attached changes, and forms the
signals we perceive as "sound."

Anfang War der Wasserstoff (In the Beginning was Hydrogen), by the
German biologist Hoimar von Ditfurth, into Turkish, and who has come to
be regarded as an "evolution expert" by the Turkish media, sums up his
"scientific" theory on the origin of the ear and the evidence for it in this

Our hearing organ,the ear, emerged as a result of the evolution of the
endoderm and exoderm layers
, which we call the skin. One proof of this is

that we feel low sounds in the skin of our stomachs!359

In other words, Atayman thinks that the ear evolved from the
ordinary skin in other parts of our bodies, and sees our feeling low sounds
in our skin as a proof of this.
Let us first take Atayman's "theory," and then the "proof" he offers. We
have just seen that the ear is a complex structure made up of dozens of
different parts. To propose that this structure emerged with "the evolution
of layers of skin" is, in a word, to build castles in the air. What mutation or
natural selection effect could enable such an evolution to happen? Which
part of the ear formed first? How could that part, the product of
coincidence, have been chosen by natural selection even though it had no
function? How did chance bring about all the sensitive mechanical
balances in the ear: the ear drum, the hammer, anvil and stirrup bones, the
muscles that control them, the inner ear, the cochlea, the liquid in it, the
tiny hairs, the movement-sensitive cells, their nerve connections, etc.?
There is no answer to these questions. In fact, to suggest that all this
complex structure is just "chance" is actually an attack on human
intelligence. However, in Michael Denton's words, to the Darwinist "the
idea is accepted without a ripple of doubt - the paradigm takes

Beyond the mechanisms of natural selection and mutation,
evolutionists really believe in a "magic wand" that brings about the most
complex designs by chance.
The "proof" that Atayman supplies for this imaginary theory is even
more interesting. He says, "Our feeling low sounds in our skin is proof."
What we call sound actually consists of vibrations in the air. Since
vibrations are a physical effect, of course they can be perceived by our
sense of touch. For that reason it is quite normal that we should be able to
feel high and low sounds physically. Furthermore, these sounds also affect



bodies physically. The breaking of glass in a room under high intensities
of sound is one example of this. The interesting thing is that the
evolutionist writer Atayman should think that these effects are a proof of
the evolution of the ear. The logic Atayman employs is the following: "The
ear perceives sound waves, our skin is affected by these vibrations,
therefore, the ear evolved from the skin." Following Atayman's logic, one
could also say, "The ear perceives sound waves, glass is also affected by
these, therefore the ear evolved from glass." Once one has left the bounds
of reason, there is no "theory" that cannot be proposed.
Other scenarios that evolutionists put forward regarding the origin
of the ear are surprisingly inconsistent. Evolutionists claim that all
mammals, including human beings, evolved from reptiles. But, as we saw
earlier, reptiles' ear structures are very different from those of
. All mammals possess the middle ear structure made up of the
three bones that have just been described, whereas there is only one bone
in the middle ear of all reptiles. In response to this, evolutionists claim
that four separate bones in the jaws of reptiles changed place by chance
and "migrated" to the middle ear, and that again by chance they took on
just the right shape to turn into the anvil and stirrup bones. According to
this imaginary scenario, the single bone in reptiles' middle ears changed
shape and turned into the hammer bone, and the exceedingly sensitive
equilibrium between the three bones in the middle ear was established by

This fantastical claim, based on no scientific discovery at all (it
corresponds to nothing in the fossil record), is exceedingly self-
contradictory. The most important point here is that such an imaginary
change would leave a creature deaf. Naturally, a living thing cannot
continue hearing if its jaw bones slowly start entering its inner ear. Such a
species would be at a disadvantage compared to other living things and
would be eliminated, according to what evolutionists themselves believe.
On the other hand, a living thing whose jaw bones were moving
towards its ear would end up with a defective jaw. Such a creature's
ability to chew would greatly decrease, and even disappear totally. This,
too, would disadvantage the creature, and result in its elimination.
In short, the results which emerge when one examines the structure
of ears and their origins clearly invalidate evolutionist assumptions. The

Irreducible Complexity


Grolier Encyclopedia, an evolutionist source, makes the admission that "the
origin of the ear is shrouded in uncertainty

Actually, anyone who
studies the system in the ear with common sense can easily see that it is
the product of a conscious creation.
