Who is to know if the animal can't adapt? For all we know a Sea Lion somewhere in the seas is blind and kicking Killer Whale ass. Just because we've never seen of heard of it before doesn't mean they don't exist.

Only our minds, but that could easily change.

We're just smarter... but we don't even have claws, venom glands, night vision, ultra-sonic hearing... or any of the cool abilities that animals (and superheroes) have. If people keep making super powers that are representative of abilities that animals can do and humans cannot, I think it shows that we're in many ways inferior to our animal brethren.

But a sharp mind can be just as lethal as a poisonous sting... I think it's all even.

yes. we have weapons and nuclear bombs, and such. Without any weapons or anything, then no. Tigers and bears would own us.

Human aren't superior to animals. I'd put us at the same level; They feel pain, they have social relationships, they can relate to us. And when humans are put in an higher level than animals, its just to justify an economical activity that abuses them. I'm studyin to become a vet, and sometimes I see awful stuff being made.

I think compared to some animals...like the sloth, we are superior. jk xD Although, this earth is made for all living things, and we must live together. It is a chain or circle of life. Without them we don't exist. Without us they can. Hm...now that I've just said that...animals are superior than us. DDDDDD: The good Lord didn't intend for humans to be arrogant maniacs, thinking this world is only ours to control and do whatever we want with nature. xP

That all depends on what kind of animal…. I don’t think a sea-sponge can relate to a Human… Come to think of it, I don’t think the have brains.

Anyway, animals live just for the sake of living. On an individual level they have no purpose. As a group they’re necessary for life.

P.S: Man, sure are all lot of animal rights actavists here... ...Best watch what I talk about eating... It's not safe to mention hamburgers anymore...

Humans live just for the sake of living too. Any "purpose" humans have doesn't really matter in the big picture, and purpose is all just a part of living anyway.

umm. humans are superior to animals.

because of that nine or so pounds in your head.

its true that alot of animals are faster and stronger, but your brain allows you to surpass that by using tools. the power of the brain..look at hiroshima and nagasaki with the atomic bomb. and how we wiped out the buffalo. thats why we're on top of the food chain.

Humans don’t live just for the sake of living… Okay, well, some of us do, but most of us have some goal. How many people do you know that want to be just forgotten after they die? Nearly all of us have some desire to be past down through history, or to benefit mankind. Rather through religious works, or the pursuit of knowledge. In that sense we are still superior to animals…on an individual level. I’ll still save the life of a Human being before some mangy dog.

Even if you have a goal, are in pursuit of something, or anything along those lines you're still living for the sake of living. I mean ultimately the reason humans would have such long-term desires is because they value their lives anyway, so it really makes no difference. And how exactly does having individual purpose make humans superior in the first place?

Also, humans can't be that superior if they're so irrational. I mean were one of the only animals that habitually kill each other.
