It technically makes a vibration in the air that could become a sound if there was an ear to hear it. Otherwise...nope! lol

Ever watch Family Guy? The episode where Peter needs to find himself and have a guiding spirit and talk to nature? Yeah...one of the trees answers this question

Yes. The vibrations do not require an ear to make a sound.

technically, IZ, sound is something our ears make out of vibrations. Without any vibrations there would be no sound, and without our ears detecting the vibrations the way they do, we wouldn't be hearing them. Thunder is a good example. The vibration rolls out. So you don't hear the thunder right away because the vibrations are moving slowly toward you. And when it's really far away you can't hear it at all because the vibrations aren't strong enough to reach you.

It does.

Well, someone far away is making a noise, and I don't hear it. But it's still making a sound. I hardly find this a debate topic.

Of course it does. This isn't even a debateable question. Just because no one is around doesn't mean it doesn't make a sound.

that's the thing, sound is something our brain makes so we know what the vibrations are. otherwise its just a vibration. hence, in space no one can hear you scream. because it is a vacuum your ears don't pick up the vibrations the way you do on Earth.
For instance, echolocation...dolphins don't hear the clicks they make bouncing off of things, it bounces back and they FEEL it. Same with bats.

Yes, this is debatable.

It DOES make a noise. And Charliez Fallan Angel is saying it straight to your face and you can't understand it...

Well, this is debatible, Charliez Fallen Angel is who agree with, i think. I6t is jsut a viberation, that needs something to transmit the sound into 0Not just ears, tape records and stuff too)

heh....well technically, you get the vibraitons on tape, and then again, your ears translate it. Anatomy and biology are such weird things. What I'm trying to say is that when a tree falls in the forest, it makes the potential for sound.
