Bugs in My Ears

By Karl C. Priest 11-21-2008 (revised 12-14-2012)

I’d rather have a bee buzzing around me than have to listen to people (especially adults) who are unable to express themselves without saying “like” or “go”. For example, instead of “I thought”, it is “I was like” and instead of “I said”, it is “I go”. This irritating “Valleyspeak” ( includes “I went" or “I am going”.  For example:  "John was shoveling in the food, and I am going 'What a hog!’"

Worse than a mosquito near my ear is the frequent, “Oh, my god! (omigawd)” I want to ask them, “Since you brought it up—who is your god?” “OMG” is widely used in texting. Sadly, that phrase (“Oh my god!”) is often recorded as the last words in some tragedy such as a plane crash.

This brings me to the slippery slope of profanity. The greatest television shows (Andy Griffith and Little House on the Prairie for example) were tremendous successes without profane dialogue. Then came along some other fairly tame programs that started slipping in a “hell” here and there. (There will be more about “hell” below. Pun intended.) From an occasion use of “damn”, society gradually moved to using God’s name in vain with “God!” as an exclamation. It wasn’t long until “Jesus” and “Jesus Christ” were used likewise. Now, “G-- D---” is commonly heard on network television along with just about any obscenity imaginable.

I think Satan’s strategy to get people to block out that they are hell bound is (besides getting preachers not to preach about it) to make “hell” an often used word.

There are appropriate times (such as this) to use “hell” and even an inappropriate (but meaningful) time when someone angrily tells another to go there. I do not think it is acceptable to use the word as a figure of speech describing something that is terrible because hell is far worse than anything that can happen in this life (see addenda). Maybe, it is not wrong to say something that is certain is “as sure as hell”.

However, think about how “hell” is used so many other times from Judge Joe to Rush Limbaugh. You would think those two men would be able to express themselves better. I wonder if either of them thinks that use of that term makes them “macho”. I also heard the religious Glenn Beck do it!

Here are a few that come to mind: “oh hell”, “like hell I will”, “a hell of a”, “a snowball’s chance in hell”, “hell’s bells”, “hot as hell”, “get the hell out”, “hell fire”, “hell yes/no”.

The degradation of grammar and morals is part of the natural course for a society that abandons its Judeo-Christian foundation.

Let me put a bug in your ear—it is only going to grow worse.



Hell is mentioned frequently in the Bible.

Some examples:

Jesus said, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28) and “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” (Matthew 23:33)

Hell is a place prepared for a purpose. For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, (II Peter 2:4a) The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. (Psalms 9:17)

Hell is everlasting fire: Matthew 13:42 and 25:41.

There shall be weeping (Matt 8:12), wailing (Matt 13:42), and gnashing of teeth (Matt 13:50) in hell.



To "put a bug (or flea) in (someone's) ear, put a bug (or bee) in (someone's) bonnet, to suggest, hint, reveal, around 1900. This seems to be a later version of to 'earwig.'" "earwig, to pester insinuate, to influence with words, from the earwig insect (first recorded in English in 1000) which was thought to enter the head through the ear." ("Listening to America" by Stuart Berg Flexner,Simon and Schuster, New York, 1982)



Having a live insect in your ear can be extremely uncomfortable. People are often desperate to get the bug to stop moving.

If you do not have a known hole in your eardrum, it is usually safe to place a few drops of mineral oil into the ear. This will kill the bug and allow you to calmly and safely get to a medical office for further care.


Other advice:




Insects do NOT try to eat into your brain! (Karl)



The insect name “earwig” is derived from Old English eare "ear" and wicga, "insect". (Wicga is in turn related to wiggle, and ultimately to other words implying movement, including way and vehicle, all from PIE *wegh-.) The name comes from the old wives' tale that earwigs burrow into the brains of humans through the ear and therein lay their eggs. Earwigs are omnivores that are predisposed to hiding in warm humid crevices and as such one may crawl into a human ear canal. This is not, however, a location where they are frequently found. (

Note: Earwigs, like all insects, are utterly amazing. The mother earwig cares for the young by moving, cleaning, and protecting them during the first stages of their lives. To stay warm, the little (1/2 to ¾ in.) earwig can burrow up to six feet into the ground. They do not hurt man except for some minor plant damage. (Karl)



In case you may think (despite reading the first part of my testimony) that I am a prude regarding profanity, I hereby clarify that I think the King James Bible is just find at I Samuel 25:22, 34; I Kings 14:10, 16:11, 21:21; II Kings 9:8, 18:27; and Isaiah 36:12. However, the medical term would better be used in modern conversation.



‘Insects have ears on pretty much every part of their body except on their head proper.” ( The locations include their antennae, wings, legs, “chests,” and “necks.” See for some great photos. Evolutionists make unheard of claims like “i nsects have evolved ears at least 17 times in different lineages…”, but admit that (in the fossils discussed) that “these ancient insects had ears virtually identical to cricket and katydid ears today.” ( That, listen carefully, equals NO EVOLUTION!*

Under ideal conditions humans can hear up to 20 kHz ( but some grasshoppers can hear up to 50 MHz ( KHz =kilohertz = 10 3 Hz and MHz = megahertz = 10 6 Hz. ( There are 1000 kHz in one MHz (

Insect ears are extraordinary and envied by engineers. See the following headlines at Thank God for Insects: Super fly lends an ear to bio-inspired hearing aids and robotic listening devices, Cornell neuroscientists report,

As Jesus Christ said, “He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.” (Matt. 11:15 KJB) God described evolutionists perfectly when He said, “Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not.” (Jeremiah 5:21)

*If I heard the following stated I would not believe my ears, but a quote from a true believer in evolutionism (a scientist) was put into writing:

Deep in the South American rainforest, katydids perk up their tiny ears to listen for the clicking of bats. Apart from being on the insects' forelegs, those ears are remarkably similar to our own, new research shows...Despite their huge differences, katydids and humans have "the same job description,"... "What blows me away," he says, "is the evolutionary convergence between insects and mammals." (

A response to that stupid statement:

“Convergent evolution” is the ultimate evolutionary non-explanation of how similar complex systems came about in living things that are far apart on the evolutionary tree. The extreme silliness of this concept can be seen just by asking: what mysterious forces do they think produced the tympanic membrane, the impedance matching mechanism and the array of sensory receptors, along with the brain to interpret the sounds in each living thing, and encoded the genes to build them? It is obvious that the mere presence of sound in the air is not going to do this for insects or mammals, any more than it will result in microphones and hearing aids appearing by themselves without intelligent engineers to design and build them. The faith of evolutionists in mindless molecules and purposeless physical forces is truly spectacular, but sadly is a reminder of those who called themselves wise, but became fools because they worshipped the creation instead of the Creator. See Romans 1:20-23. (Ref. design, biophysics, technology) John MacKay ( Creation Research) : Creation Evidence Research News 12-12-12


We do not know what we do not know about insect hearing. Consider the following about a half-inch insect.

"We are still struggling to learn the breadth and depth of the use of vibration in communication, but it appears to be much more ubiquitous than any of us would have imagined 20 years ago," she said.

By listening in on these vibrations and observing treehoppers in the field, Cocroft and his colleagues have learned that the insects use substrate vibrations for many of the same reasons other animals, including humans, use vocal chords—to get each others' attention, find mates, and share the address for a bite to eat.

With at least 200,000 different insect species communicating via vibrations, there can be several different species communicating—and eavesdropping—on the same surface.

Cocroft said that, in general, insects are able to pick up and respond to the vibrations made by individuals of their own species, telling the signals apart by the pitch or the rhythm of the timing.
