Uhh, that's not true at all. A person can be deaf and still be able to compose great music (and we all know what famous composer became mostly deaf over time). Ear training is not relevant to composing; A person can be able to compose and comprehend what they wrote, without ever taking on ear training, or even listening to their own piece at all. There are many ways to learn how to comprehend music, Mark, and I think it's about time you realized this... Don't get in that thing were you tell us it's important to have ear training on inversions..
The only thing I can see the use of ear training having any relevance, is being able to recognize what you just heard in something somebody else made, or, using it to be able to copy what somebody else made. For composing alone, it is not relevant.
Stop while you are ahead, Mark, you just make yourself look silly when you try to shine the light on yourself. From what I've read in your various posts (not just in the music area), you seem to be trying to do this, and it's causing you not to see what you are really doing, which is making yourself look rather silly.
