Your Hearing, Eyesight and Brains

Cont'd from page 3

you, and granted you the hearing, the eyes, and the brains. Rarely are you appreciative.”

EYESIGHT: The eyeball is filled with a jelly-like substance called the vitreous humor. Eye muscles rotate the eyes in different directions. The part that gives your eye color—brown, blue or hazel—is the iris. Your eye has three layers. The outer layer is the sclera, the white of the eye, with the cornea at the front. The choroid is the middle layer. It contains the lens and tiny blood vessels. The inner layer is the retina. It’s the sensitive part of the eye. When you look at any object as it enters the eyes, the rays are bent by the cornea and the lens. This focuses an upside-down image onto the retina. Information about the image is sent along the optic nerve to the brain, where the image is interpreted so that you see it the right way up. The retina is packed with millions of light sensitive nerve cells called rods and cones. These nerves convert light into electrical signals to the optic nerve, then to the brain. Rods work well in dim light but do not distinguish colors. Cones detect colors best in bright light.

[2:20] The lightning almost snatches away their eyesight. When it lights for them, they move forward, and when it turns dark, they stand still. If GOD wills, He can take away their hearing and their eyesight. GOD is Omnipotent.

HEARING: Your ears detect sound

waves, which are funneled into your earflaps. The waves travel down a long tube called the ear canal to the eardrum, causing the drum to vibrate. Three tiny bones called ossicles pass these vibrations on to the fluid-filled cochlea in the inner ear. Here, the vibrations move thousands of tiny hair cells, stimulating nerves to send sound signals to the brain. Then your brain interprets those sounds for you—is that my cell phone ring tone or someone else’s?

In addition to being able to hear, your ears also help you stand up and move around without falling over. Special organs in the inner ear help you keep your balance by sending signals to your brain about your body’s position. The three ossicles lie in the middle ear. They are called the hammer, anvil and stirrup. This is amazing that your ears—designed to allow you to hear—also are critical for balance. God’s perfect design.

God can prevent us from hearing and seeing.

[2:7] GOD seals their minds and their hearing, and their eyes are veiled. They have incurred severe retribution.

[26:212] For they are prevented from hearing.

Or we can choose to appreciate these God-given gifts.

[17:36] You shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain, and you are responsible for using them.

[32:15] The only people who truly believe in our revelations are those who fall prostrate upon hearing them. They glorify and praise their Lord, without any arrogance.
