^^According to that argument, humans are not superior to animals, though that doesn't necessarily mean they're not the superior animals. Anyway, different animals have different superiorities (speed, camouflage, natural weapons, etc.), but we have a superior mind. So yeah, we're the superior animals.

Edit: spelling mistake...

Just for the sake of argument, I say generally non-human animals are superior. Humans have become specialized to such a high degree that we are useless. Our intelligence, which once was an advantage, is now dedicated to things that wouldn't help with survival. We know how to use things that are supplied by society (computers, stoves, clothes), but without society providing these things that we've become accustomed to using, we would phail spectacularly.

So basically, I say animals are better because they aren't spoiled by our awsome civilizations.


i'll say i agree... haha

To jack a psych example, a dog begging for food is an example of animals training humans.

Animals don't beat the $*&t out of each other for a new pair of tennis shoes, they don't steal millions (Enron,etc) from others so they can support their 3 ex-wives , 2 yachts, and 4 cars, they don't build nuclear weapons and then dump the nuclear waste in oceans...

It's a never ending list.
In *my* book, Animals, by far, better than humans.

I think that other animals are superior their senses though, and humans for their brain power.

Humans don't paralyze you and then lay eggs inside of you.

simpleyesa: good topic, haha. i did a 10 pg paper on this just a few weeks ago

humans are animals; however, our brain capacity is much more complex = higher intelligence. we have the upper hand in terms of forming communities and ability to form new linguistic features for communication... [sociologically, economically, etc.] but.. animals are better structured for their environments... they adapt faster than humans could ever, MUCH better survival skills.. with great instinctive intution... i guess there are ups and downs to both.. but if you're talking about rights.. humans and animals have practically the same rights to life.

[note: this is my own opinion only!]

Yes! HUMANS ARE ANIMALS! But the Human animal is superior to all other animals! :-D

Religiously:
A. God favors us.
B. God made us in his image
C. God blew the breath of life into our lungs.
D. There are more but I’ll leave off here.

Secularly:
A. We are the most intelligent.
B. Any individual person is more likely to make the world a better place than an animal.
C. Humans have more emotional capabilities than animals.
D. We’re not quadrupeds.
E. We have legs, and Arms.
F. No fangs.
G. I’m bias. I consider humans my brothers and sisters, rather I like them or not. I put my family before anyone else.

Honestly, I think animals are very important. Without them our environment would collapse and life for Humans wouldn’t be possible. In that sense we rely on them more than they on us. However, I place more value in a Human life than an animal life. Always have. Most likely, I always will. None the less I hate things like hunting, and torturing animals. I’d understand hunting for… I dunno, a tribesman in Africa who needs to hunt to survive. But, there’s no point in it in America except the fun of murdering some innocent creature. Now, I’m not a vegetarian. Rather or not I eat delicious meat or not people are still going to slaughter pigs and cows. So, they’re already dead, might as well eat.

Now, before people say, “Well if everyone thinks that way!” I’m going to assure you all, that I know for a fact, that the meat industry will never fall. How do I know? Cuz A. Humans need meat, or expensive meat supplements to be healthy. B. Humans our carnivores. The digestion of meat has been a part of our existence before the dawn of civilization. C. Oprah once said she wouldn’t eat meat ever again. Meat sales nearly vanished. Nearly. If Oprah can’t stop something then nobody can.

Besides, do you ever stop to think that if we didn’t eat cows there wouldn’t be cows? I mean, seriously, when was the last time you went on a nature walk, admired the aesthetic wonder of a sun-dappled forest floor as you hiked under the wonder of a forest cupola, scrutinized the woods, pushed through some shrubberies and shouted with great excitement, “Look a wild cow!”

Something else I hate is when people act like something is more valuable than something else just because it’s cute. You know what I mean?

Well, I’m off topic, but that’s how I feel in a nut shell.
