Pffft. It's arrogance. You're saying that only humans can hear, and that's total bull.

Of course it does.  You don't have to hear something for it to have made a sound.  You don't have to see something for it to be visible.

Yes, it's total arrogance because I'm reading you a DEFINITION of the word. Would you like to point out to me where I said that only humans can hear? Maybe next time I'll be more courteous and include every creature ever when I define something for you.
Um, wow.  I simply answered the question that this whole thread was about.  Sorry if you misinterpreted what I said, but it had absolutely nothing to do with what you or anyone else said.  And I never said that you said only humans can hear.

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.
Yea, well, when you talk, you are only making vierations, but you can hear it, ONLY because your ears are around to transmit the sound. So, say if i lost my brain, i would not be able to hear anything. So, still, i say, it makes a NO sound, only viberations, unless something is able to hear it. Oh, yeah, and this is debatible.

Think of a guitar.

Using the strings and it will make vibrations that go into the ear and it will translate to a sound;.

I dunno...if you ain't got the vibrations, you ain't got the sound.
