So creationists; if this god made us perfectly and there was no death in the Garden of Eden, why can't we close our ears?
Several potential answers:
1. We simply lack sufficient faith
to do that which god has enabled us to be able to do.
2. God himself does not have ears that can be closed. Ergo, being created in his image, we also do not have ears that can be closed.
3. You can spiritually
close your ears, so your question is moot.
4. As per Kevin Smith
, the voice of god is sufficient to annihilate a human being. God simply did not want to make it easier for you to avoid his vengeful wrath.
5. Ear canals that can be closed may make something sexual like Shin She Shin She more pleasurable, and such an act is even more
abominable than homosexual sex. Ergo, he needed to squash that temptation.
