The Superior Human?

    This documentary is a loss of time!

    Superiority is survival, and I challenge any other species to go to space, and live without his natural place after the sun eats earth.

    Superiority is also the power, to rule them all, to destroy them all! I challenge any other specie to tell me what to do.

    Superiority is creation. I challenge any other specie to create anything they want, abstract, or just for fun. Humans is so superior that they can create any specie they want just with dna engineering, we are the programmers of live. If I want a blue dog, I made a blue dog. If I want a human 2.0 I made a human 2.0. Tell me if creating live isn’t superior than just being live (or surviving like animals).

    *(about the elephants painting, this is fake already proved google it, and I can prove any of your arguments is fake too if I have time. Before you made some documentary check if your source is real, dumbass.)

      Superiority ends when you die. And every living thing dies. Don’t fool yourself thinking that you are special in this world, you aren’t. I think that’s the most liberating thing you can know, so use it to your advantage and help the world.

    “all of these alleged differences…are morally irrelevent”

    First, I challenge you to learn the English language better; so far the Prarie Dogs shown in the documentary know their language far more comprehensibly than you know English.

    Second, none of the arguments you made actually matter to the other species. Art isn’t important to survival. And by the time the sun swallows the earth, the human race won’t still be around so why does it matter that we feel the need to want more than what is necessary?

    Other animals understand that a blue dog is a ridiculous notion and they understand that procreation is much more satisfying than test tube babies. They are satisfied with their life, where you seem unhappy. Maybe you can learn something from them?

      Dear Seanna, FYI English is not my native language, is Portuguese! So you can see that I made a lot of mistakes over there, that’s because I’m learning English. But never mind, I’m optimistic and still bet you that the human race will be around, if we change our society.
      And sorry for the blue dog, it was just a poor example, but what I was trying to say is that if you have some disease or got injured you don’t die like almost the rest of the species, you can have the cure.
      And about the procreation, humans enjoying doing this just for fun, animals need hormones and specific time periods. Can you agree with me just this time at least? haha
      And finally I forgot to comment in the first post, but this site TA is one of my favorites.

    If, he set his heart upon man, if he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath; All flesh shall perish together, and man shall return again to the dust. (And even from there, we must face Him);
    Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who has given understanding to the heart?
    He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? He that planted the eye, shall he not see?
    Come now, let us kneel before the Lord our maker. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us and not we ourselves; God has made the world and all things therein, He giveth life and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all. . .the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; In him we live, and move and have our being. Wilt thou disannul God? His judgment? Wilt thou condemn God, that thou mayest be righteous? Hast thou an arm like God? Canst thou thunder with a voice like him? Deck thyself with majesty and excellency; and array thyself with glory and beauty. Canst thou, cast abroad the rage of thy wrath: and behold everyone that is proud, and abase him. Look on everyone that is proud, and bring him low; Behold, now the behemoth, which God hath made, he eateth grass as an ox, his strength is in his loins, his force is in the navel of his belly. He moveth his tail like a cedar:the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. His bones are as strong as pieces of brass:his bones are like bars of iron. Yet he knows, he does not have dominion, and understands the ways of God, who is able to speak to him with a word. He knows, when he, eats food upon the mountains, where he and the other, wild beast play. When he lieth under the shady trees, in the covet of the reeds. He knows when the shady trees cover him with their shadow; and when the brook compasses about him, that he can draw up waters into his mouth. If one has such power, truely he has dominion, and I confess He is Lord! I must to confess, his right hand alone is able to save, and give life, to all who call upon his name.
