So, you claim that mutations and natural selection are the mechanisms that turned molecules into man ...
However, you are unable to articulate, even when given the license for fantasy, a reasonable scenario for those events occuring.
Is that correct? Yes or no are your only two options. If yes, please provide the requested information:
Since you so clearly understand how mutatations and natural selection drive evolution, please share with us the likely scenario of mutations creating some of the components for hearing. Please be specific as this shouldn't be difficult for you considering your vast knowledge of the process:
1. The first 3 random mutations creating just ONE mechanically gated hair cell
2. The first 3 random mutations in creating the ‘wiring’ for the electrical signals that need to transmit to the brain
3. The first 3 random mutations that would create the receptors that receive and react to the signals
4. The first 3 mutations needed to connect everything together while you're at it.
Unless, everything gets linked together, nothing by itself will produce pressure sensitivity, which is about as basic as you can get in the evolution of hearing.

I don't know why I'm bothering to answer a question that you already know the answer to...but I've maintained all along that mutation and natural selection are indeed the very mechanisms that drive evolution. I have written nothing to suggest otherwise. I am further asserting that, while the mechanism is known, the genetic road map from the past 3.5 billion years is not. As I've said previously, the human genome project was "completed" only 2 or so years ago. The full genomes of very, very few organisms are known, therefore your questions are neither clever, interesting, nor relevant.
