I was browsing through the internet and found something interesting but a little confusing. I wanted to share it with you all. Do any of you know the difference between the two? Because I can't figure it out. What do you think?


Enjoy!!!

It's pretty simple. Humans are born to make money, because money is life, money grows crops, money breeds animals, money builds homes, money saves lives.

Being human means nothing without money, it only means something to those that value your very existence.

Like a homeless man being friendly, or some Crack head rambling on about something that tickles your fancy.

The difference is what we can do without money. Though it is worthless in value it is rich in meaning.

Being a human being is about being a human physically. Like your physical body is that of a human being.
Being human is about the mind. So say for instance that 75% of your physical body was replaced with synthetic parts, making you physically more of a synthetic machine than a human being. You would still have a human mind. You would still have the same emotions and evolutionary psychological quirks that are typical of humans. You would still be human in essence, even if your physical body was not that of a human being.

Here's what I chalk it up as:

Human Beings - The physical act of being a human. That's it.

Being Human - Showing traits most animals don't have like empathy, reason, cruelty, inspiration, creativity, etc.

One use of "being" is a noun and the other use of "being" is a verb.

It's ok, you'll probably forget about this thread in 30 minutes anyways.

- Human beings are social animals, who overcame their lack of natural predatory advantage by forming social groups, and developing the intelligence to work together for their own advantage.

- "Being Human" is one of Robin Williams' worst movies, from the time Bill Forsyth's directorial career had neurotically sank from "Local Hero" into depressed and pretentiously philosophical "quirky" attempts at dramedy after "Comfort and Joy". (qv. "Gregory's Two Girls")

Hope that explains it.
