    yeah but if like a sound is just vibrations in the air right? and a human ear is used to turn those vibrations into sound if theres no hume/animal ears around then the vibrations cannot become a sound so i think no theres no sound made but there is still loads more theories and questions.

    Both yes and no.
    Yes because there still is air and since sound travels through air, the tree must've made some sound when it fell.

    No because there is no one to hear it so you don't know ...

    And the rest is matter of opinion.

    I agree that the answer is yes, Sound is the vibration of matter, capable of being perceived by the sense of hearing. This does not mean it needs to be heard but rather could be heard. Even if the tree does not make an "audible" sound detectable by human ear does not mean it did not make a sound as long as matter was vibrated (hence the tree falling would produce this) and that "sound" is capable of being heard by something that can hear in that frequency.

    Re: A simple yet complex question....

    If your annoying sister who nobody listens to fell down in a forest, did she make a sound?

    XD

    If a ninja tripped in a forest, does he make a sound? XD



    ... but seriously...

    A better question is: If none of us creatures in the entire world were ever given the gift of hearing, would sound even... happen?

    You're wondering, if creatures were not able to hear something, would there even be a use to make a sound?

    Or perhaps, would you happen to say, that nothing really makes a sound, and the vibrations that we creatures catch into our ear is transformed into SOUND?


    ^_^ ... or are you just saying that we're so selfish to think that nothing should exist if we aren't there to witness it?

    If that's the case, use this as a question to add on:
    If a tree falls in a forest, and none of us were there to witness it... did it ever fall in the first place? ... afterall, perhaps, it just got into that position out of the pure spectacle that we would see it on the ground.

    If you look at that way then why not look at it this way, if it has a sound god made it to have one.
