A Tree Falling

"A tree falling in the forest without ears to hear makes no sound". I have heard this saying a number of times. Now I think that I may have finally understood this saying. When a tree falls in the forest, it only moves air and moves and cracks branches. These send out vibrations. It is only the ears of a living thing with ears that hears. When the vibrations enter the ear canal they are translated or recorded as sounds within the brain of the living thing. So, in a way, you could say that the sounds only happen within the brain of the living creature.

"God desires that all men to be saved." If hell is true, then, either God is not powerful enough to carry out his desires, OR his desires are wishy washy meaningless dribble. Why would God desire something that He knew that He can't have? What does desire mean? is desire a choice? Is desire static or does it grow or move? Does desire indicate any movement or working towards the object of one's desire?
