The Flawless Harmony between Eyes and Ears

eyeThe vision system that we have is immeasurably superior to the display technologies designed by experts in several techniques. This system has a characteristic which the advanced technology cannot imitate; even if we turn our head very fast, the clarity and the quality doesn’t change. Also under normal circumstances, every time we move our head, we would have seen images sliding or unable to focus on a certain point, just like the images taken with an amateur camera. But we never come across such an image because no matter which direction we turn our head to, our eyes automatically move to the opposite direction to balance the vision. If we had to turn our eyes every time when we move our head to look at the same point, it would have been very difficult and there would be much disorder. But this never happens, and the visual process can be completed perfectly; thanks to the flawless details in this automatic tuning system. Allah’s (swt) endless Wisdom is revealed in a verse from the Quran that states:

This system has a characteristic which the advanced technology cannot imitate; even if we turn our head very fast, the clarity and the quality doesn’t change.

“And whatever of blessings and good things you have, it is from Allah. Then, when harm touches you, unto Him you cry aloud for help.” (An-Nahl 16:53)

The scientific name of this reflex which coordinates our vision like an automatic camera system is the Vestibulo-ocular reflex. But this reflex doesn’t do its duty only with our eyes. Our eyes have a very important and secret supporter to run this reflex: Our ears; the perfect system of the ear that controls the head’s turning movements

The structures named “the semi-circular canals” in our ears are miracles of creation with the duty they carry out.There are 3-three semi-circular canals and they are combined with each other perpendicularly. Each of these three canals is created specially by Almighty Allah (swt) for the 3-three types of turning movements that we do with our head.On the tips of these canals, there is a part called the “ampulla” which contains ciliated cells.

As one of the countless signs of the Superior Wisdom of Almighty Allah (swt), these little ciliated cells perceive all the turning movements of our head and transmit this to the brain as an electrical signal.

How does this miracle happen?

In the semi-circular canals, there is a special liquid called “endolymph”. When a bucket full of water is turned, the buckets prevent the water from pouring for a while. Similarly, the liquid inside the ear canal doesn’t move immediately. As a result, the liquid bends the cilia. This mechanical potency is turned into an electrical signal as another miracle of creation. But an interesting situation comes into question here; even if the head doesn’t turn in any direction, the cilia moves to either the right side or to the left side. By this movement, frequent or rare electrical signals are produced periodically.

The structures named “the semi-circular canals” in our ears are miracles of creation with the duty they carry out.There are 3-three semi-circular canals and they are combined with each other perpendicularly. Each of these three canals is created specially by Almighty Allah (swt) for the 3-three types of turning movements that we do with our head.

What makes our eyes Superior than the cameras?

Almighty Allah (swt) has given each eye 6-six little motors for this perfect camera system to work. These little motors are the muscles that turn the eye to six different directions. When we want to turn our eye in any direction, the brain commands these little motors and they move our eye as we like.

There is no doubt that…

There is a request inside us to turn our head.

According to our demand, a command comes from our brain.

These commands are sent to where they should go by electric impulses.

After that, these electrical signals can move the muscles as we like.

These are the details that should be considered.

Through an ordinary day, you would never recognize these details about the movements of your eyes. And you don’t make an extra effort for these details to happen. However, this luxurious and matchless camera system works perfectly as you need.This miracle has only one explanation; this system can work only by the Superior Wisdom of Almighty Allah (swt), The Lord of the Worlds.

“He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor of all things, the Bestower of forms…” (Al-Hashr 59:24)

For the perfect harmony between the eyes and the ears to work flawlessly in this system and the layers that form this system; every part of the system should exist at the same time. Eyes and ears are created as a whole by Allah (swt).

“Say (O Muhammad (sa) ): Tell me or inform me (what) do you think about your (so-called) partner-gods to whom you call upon besides Allah, show me, what they have created of the earth? Or have they any share in the heavens? Or have We given them a Book, so that they act on clear proof there from? Nay, the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.) promise one another nothing but delusions.” (Fatir 35:40)

The cooperation of the eyes and ears

Besides the different systems that the eyes and the ear have, it is another important subject that these perfect signs of creation come together and form perfect vision. For example, when you turn your head to the left, the signal coming from the semicircular canal on the left side moves to the eyes through two nerve bunches. One of these goes to the right eye, and the other one goes to the left eye. The nerve bunch which goes to the right eye goes to one of the six muscles on the right eye; in other words it goes to the right muscle of the right eye. The nerve bunch which goes to the left eye goes to the muscle on the right side of the left eye. The interesting part here is this; these muscles are formed from different muscles for the two eyes but both of them do the same job and both of them work to turn the eye to the right. Finally the electrical signals are turned into action and perfect vision is provided.

If the eyes and the ears were formed as a result of coincidences, how could they be in such harmony? Which coincidence can form such a perfect mechanism that can evaluate millions of different codes in a second and combine them with each other?

Evolutionists cannot explain the harmony between eyes and ears

It is a very fine-tuned process that the eyes which are independent of each other form one vision, and while doing this a third dimension is added to the two dimensional vision.

If the eyes and the ears were formed as a result of coincidences, how could they be in such harmony? Which coincidence can form such a perfect mechanism that can evaluate millions of different codes in a second and combine them with each other? If there was a lack of harmony between the eyes and the ears, then the signals would be mixed and there would only be a confused vision. But such a chaos never happens. The organs created in harmony, send signals to the brain which too is in great harmony – evaluates these signals. And as a result of this, a perfect vision is provided. There is no way to explain the existence of this amazing system by coincidences. This system has come into being by the flawless creation of Almighty Allah (swt). In a verse of the Quran, this miraculous creation of our Lord is revealed as follows:

“Who has created the seven heavens one above another, you can see no fault in the creations of the Most Beneficent. Then look again: “Can you see any rifts?”(Al-Mulk 67:3)
