Claiming that animals are the same as people only ends up devaluing human life.


Perhaps, instead of it 'devaluing human life' it could serve to increase the value of non-human animal life?!?

Human are superior. Reason number one. If a human is unable to adapt to the environment, then then they make the environment adapt to them. Reason two. Human can use stools better than animals. Reason 3. Human can do physical things that other animal can't do. Example. Contrary to popular misconceptions, humans are not the only animals to possess opposable thumbs — most primates do. (Unlike the rest of the great apes, we don't have opposable big toes on our feet.) What makes humans unique is how we can bring our thumbs all the way across the hand to our ring and little fingers. We can also flex the ring and little fingers toward the base of our thumb. This gives humans a powerful grip and exceptional dexterity to hold and manipulate tools with. The larynx, or voice box, sits lower in the throat in humans than in chimps, one of several features that enable human speech. Human ancestors evolved a descended larynx roughly 350,000 years ago. We also possess a descended hyoid bone — this horseshoe-shaped bone below the tongue, unique in that it is not attached to any other bones in the body, allows us to articulate words when speaking. For example. You know the movies of the Planet of the apes and how the gorillas or monkeys amount other primates used stools. Well while they can use stools.They will never be able to use stools better than humans in real life. Why. Here why. Is call neurons. Human have neurons and others primate too. But there a huge difference between humans and other primates in this area. Primates has large neurons. This makes them stronger than humans under normal conditions. But large neurons are less precise,witch is why they will never be able to compete with humans in that regard. Small neurons make humans weaker in strength but immensely better a using stools. Because smaller neurons are more precise than larger neurons. Witch allows for the use of complex stools and other things.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable. Charles Darwin

What seperates animals and people? I can kill almost any animal by going to walmart and buying a gun. Thats what gives me my superiority over them.

I don't think your threads are bringing people to understand science, if anything, it's doing the exact opposite.

You sound more condescending than informative. :-/


___________________

Anyway, on topic. Humans are superior to animals. We are the top of the food chain, that's a fact. The thing is, we are no different from animals, we're just more intelligent. Certain people like to think we're different from animals... but we behave exactly like how animals would behave in crisis or under stressful conditions.


Human population is not the problem, it's industrial revolution that's the problem. If we can learn to be more eco-friendly, then rising human population wouldn't be a problem... but we're so dependent on fossil fuels and plastic, both of which take a long to degrade in the environment, that we don't want to look for alternatives.

And then there are certain people who oppose looking for alternatives because they believe scientists are evil and are only looking for grant money. :-/


You are unable to deal with reality. Hence you say it is condescending.

To say that humans are not even animals is just sheer stupidity. I say humans are actually inferior to other animals. We are NOT the top of the food chain. We aren't even part of the food chain because we have become totally detached from the ecosystem. How superior are human beings without tools? Pretty inferior because without tools, human beings are very weak and fragile. Also I believe we are inferior to other animals because unlike other species we are essentially a cancer on this planet. We keep on increasing population, which destroys everything. By the way, the population is increasing because of industrialization. Without industrialization is not possible for the population to go into an explosion. By the way, it is not possible to increase population without damaging the environment because humans have overshot the carrying capacity of the planet a long time ago. It is only fossil fuels that can support this excess population. If you take the fossil fuels away, the population goes away. Most of the population will disappear the moment you take the oil away.

I can make the argument that human beings are inferior to all other species because we are the only species that can't live in harmony and balance with nature. We are the only species that is dumb enough to destroy itself. We are that fucking stupid. We are dumb enough to destroy ourselves. No other species is dumb enough to destroy itself. But humans are apparently that dumb making human beings the dumbest species that exists on the planet. Calling humans Homo Sapiens is retarded because we are definitely not wise or sapient. We are stupid beyond belief. Just look at how much we are damaging the environment and rendering it uninhabitable. Doesn't sound like a smart species to me.

Tigers can only kill humans. Humans can tame and kill tigers. Don't let some hardcore researcher "easily" persuade you. Science is amazing, scientists? Not so sure about all of them. Why do dogs fight each other? Why do lions insist on feasting on deer? To say we are the only ones who can't balance a peaceful life is "sheer stupidity." To each his own though. "I'll respect your views, but I will never give it any credibility."

While I agree with some points you made, other points you make are a little...off.
Right now, there is no mistake that we are the dominate species. No, we aren't superior, we are simply more dominate. We're the ones that are changing the world the most with our technology. Humans don't have the largest population, but the billions of flies aren't impacting the Earth as much as we are.
Also, just because ants can lift weight doesn't mean they are "superior" to humans. Humans are superior in ways that allowed them to continue to dominate for this long. They have technology that make them stronger. Don't say that that isn't a weapon, because it is. The human brain is something that is a weapon to us, just like the ants strength, or a birds wings. However, if another animal were to strip us of our houses, weapons, clothes, etc. we would be powerless. I agree that humans really have grown weaker and isn't on a higher level when we are stripped bare, but human technology is what made us the dominate species right now.
So, I partially agree.

Humans created anime. Animals could not. Even if they tried.

Therefore, humans > animals.


But humans are animals thus animals could, and did. Lol.
