I agree except I don't care for a robot either.

I'd take the money. There is so much money tied up in the military industrial complex, I am not sure one could get rid of it without hurting the global economy.

I'd pick world peace.

Wrong again.
Some animals do kill their young if they are deemed a threat or a nuisance, even if they are offsprings (refer to lions). Your 'larger pack' thinking mostly applies to prey cases (refer to buffalos).
"Animals have no reason to target others who are not predators"... Animals don't target predators to begin with; they are targeted by predators. All animals seek survival, so they will hunt whatever is below them on the food chain even those that are not, if they are desperate.

"You assume that the animals act in [an altruistic] nature"... That's the total opposite of what I stated, so I don't know how you arrived at that. However, although uncommon, altruism has been observed in nature, in which one species helps their own or even another species at the cost of their own energy. Also, you saying that "altruism does not exist in this world" debunks the so-called "humanity" that you claimed differentiates humans from animals. What are you trying to say exactly?

Again, you clearly cannot tell condescension from a critical remark toward your inexperience view of the world, which you would have done better to disprove instead of blindly accuse me of my non-existent superiority complex. Now, since you lack proper argument and are attempting to validate your twisted vilification, you're calling me a narcissist. Do you even know what that means? In addition to re-taking a biology class, you should also re-take English (narcissistic attitude* - narcissist and attitude are both nouns).

Very first statement I made was this. All you did was change a few words around. You said animals build relationships with other species. You stated we are doomed for our shortcomings. I stated that animals kill off there own offsprings without reason.

Animals #1 instinct is to live, #2 is to pass off there own genes.

Also, you saying that "altruism does not exist in this world" debunks the so-called "humanity" that you claimed differentiates humans from animals. What are you trying to say exactly?

Let me repeat myself for you since you must have missed it "Any hypothetical situation can prove that altruism does not exist in this world, based on the fact that nothing in this world is done without a motive."

Is wanting to see someone's quality of life improve not a motive? People have to power to help others and choose to regardless of reason. That is in essence humanity.
You quoted me when I was refering to animals not humanity.

We have self consciousness, we are aware of death and our own mortality yet we still help others as we are capable of reason. Where animals are not, they are driven by instinct.

Again, you clearly cannot tell condescension from a critical remark toward your inexperience view of the world, which you would have done better to disprove instead of blindly accuse me of my non-existent superiority complex. Now, since you lack proper argument and are attempting to validate your twisted vilification, you're calling me a narcissist. Do you even know what that means? In addition to re-taking a biology class, you should also re-take English (narcissistic attitude* - narcissist and attitude are both nouns).

From the way you speak to others, to the way you approach a situation it is clear you do have a condescending nature. Whether you see it or not. I know of my flaws, I work on them every day I try and move forward as a person. However that does not make me naive in my thought.

Even your name "God's greatest ever" screams superiority complex.

Narcissistic personality is a condition in which people have an excessive sense of self-importance, an extreme preoccupation with themselves, and lack of empathy for others.

Sounds about right to me.

As for my poor English and spell its true. However I'm at work typing on a cellphone I do not have the time nor luxury to spell check and correct my grammer. I'm responding in between free time.

If you do look, all my comments have been edited as I quickly proof read it looking for typos.


They do have inter-species relationships. You're mixing up human society problems with other animals' problems. Animals kill for survival, and mind their own business. Humans kill because they want to, discriminate against people whom they don't like, and mistreat other animals--sometimes humans--for their own entertainment. That's why I said humankind is hopeless (and hopeless =/= doomed).

Let me repeat myself again, since you clearly missed it: "Although uncommon, altruism is sometimes observed in nature." It does exist. Humans aren't the god-granted special creatures who are the only ones capable of compassion or helping others. According to what you said, some animals might have more humanity than humankind. You just depicted your precious species as selfish beings who have agendas for everything they do. So stop because you're confusing yourself.

You can't see yourself as naive, though it describes your viewpoint of humans perfectly. (Unless you actually think they're selfish as your last response suggested--in which case would be true.) Who's the hypocrite now?
You clearly don't know me or my personality if you think I'm narcissistic, which actual differs from condescending. Again, no proof. While I do agree with my lack of empathy for most people, I am anything but self-centered. In fact, I rarely share much about myself even among my friends, some of whom told me I have a reserved, somewhat shy, and/or modest nature.
But if you're actually using my username, which is a satirical joke and reference to some of my IGNs, as part of your basis that I am a narcissist, then there's nothing more I'm going to bother saying to you regarding your false allegation(s). (You're beyond saving, too.)

I think most people would choose world peace if pressed with the question. We have to consider the judgement from your surroundings as well as our financial management capabilities. The real answer would probably be, to publicize the power given and live off the money you get for making the right choice.

Or just pick the money and to hell with Option B. I mean, if you have the money, why even care what society thinks of you? You're rich! You can do what you want. There's no material possession money can't buy.

Don't lie.

How dare you deny the darkness in humanity? The lust and greed they have? Just because you shove your head in the sand, you think it doesn't exist? Don't make me laugh.
