Why do you think we're considered as humans?


Do we look at the stars because we're human or are we human because we look at the stars?


It's somehow hard to understand. Just like, what came first, the egg or the chicken? [But that was only made so that each of us would listen to the other's point of view.]

Well in my opinion we're human because we have a sense of curiosity. :] What's yours?

other animals have a sense of curiosity too right?
i dont really see much of a reason why we should be considered human
we're living, just like other creatures
thats all

^i agree with beta-2-agonist

it's how aliens, animals, insects, and unicellular organisms call us. ask Taxonomy.
anyway, another answer would be: the reason why we're humans is because we have reason and an intellectual and rational mind.

We are considered human because it is a label put on us...a classification. A label that was put on us to signify that we are different from everything else. But what makes us human you ask? Well, humans have alot of emotions. More so than any other animal on our planet so I would say the defining attribute to humans is their vast understanding and wide array of emotions. That is what makes us human...that is what sets us apart from everything else. When you lose your emotions....your not human anymore.

This. I was going to say that it is a classification used for communication purposes. That is about it.

Some animals have shown an almost human-like intellect......take chimpanzees for one example, which can and will use tools to obtain food. I think we're considered human because we are SUPPOSED to have a conscience. Logically, we are supposed to know the difference between right and wrong, and SHOULD feel a sense of guilt if we do something wrong. But, that's just my opinion.

First came the human, later he started calling himself human just like he started calling birds birds, fish fish...

What divides us from animals is our brain and the ability to create complex technoligy.
