If you had to pick between being blind or deaf, which would it be?
What's more important, seeing or hearing?
Well, the very first thing God said was "Let there be LIGHT," not "Let there be SOUND."
So that could indicate where HIS priorities lay.
Of course, he did SAY it audibly, which means there already WAS sound, AND the lights were powered by it (the earliest voice activation system on record).
Back to square one.
But the thing that's most clear is this:
no one cares about the plight of people who can't smell (the smell-less?).
They don't even have their own word like "deaf" or "blind" (and putting "smell" and "less" together would have three L's in a row, which isn't even allowed).
And no one is even talking about this disrespect. Until now.
* "Eyear" is the sound one eventually makes when confronted with this hypothetical decision.
(Which is an unpleasant one, and could potentially tip the balance towards the selection of deafness, so as to not have to hear it?)
