And here I thought this was gonna turn into an evolution debate.


Yeah. This is what it looks like when someone utterly fails to start a religion debate. It's rather refreshing to see everyone involved not taking the bait.

Can you please cite one example of an animal thinking? I don't mean, like otter bangs rock on shell for clam, I mean like, hmm, why is the sky blue?


Not trying to get into you two's argument, but human babies do not think about why the sky is blue.Human babies lack in depth reasoning skills; so by your definition human adults are not animals but human babies are animals. You are basing all your reasoning based on an old document and not your own thoughts. By your own logic, you may as well be an otter.


Human babies do not think because they are young, and not fully developed. You wouldn't expect a baby to run a marathon would you? Animal babies, on the other hand, are just about as smart as they're gonna be. That monkey, how did it learn sign language? Was it by itself? No. Humans taught it, most likely by cause and effect, which is not thinking. I keep "moving the goal posts back" as it were, because we can achieve the longer distance. And what "old document" are you talking about, exactly?

Pendragon, have you ever taken a biology class? I'm curious.

Alright, one more point, then I'll leave you all alone. Would you kill a human? Would you kill a cow? That is all.

Edit: sorry, have to answer this one. Yes, in fact I am taking an honors biology class right now. (Well, not "right now" as in this moment, but you get what I'm saying.)

Still not relevant to being or not being an animal.

ETA: If I had to choose, I'd kill the human, because there may still be hope for the cows.

Yes, and yes.

Really, this entire argument was about your definition of what is an animal, and your definition of human.

Still irrelevant, but this one is so easily defeated that it's sad. Chimps and ants will kill their own kind in certain situations. And they are the only other species that wage war on their own kind. So that would defeat the reverse answer, as well.
