  • God that person is an idiot if he didn't think humans aren't animals. No matter how intelligent we become we're still animals.

  • To anyone who objects to the idea that humans are animals, ask them why medical researchers test new drugs for humans on animals.

  • Yes, whenever people try to differentiate it boggles my mind. We are all related somewhere down the line. We're not the same type of animal as a turtle, just like a hippo isn't the same type a frog. But we're all animals :)
    And apes! :) yay, lets embrace it. And we're great to boot :'D yay!

  • You can't classify a breathing organism as non animal. You just can't. The meaning of animal to modt people is dogs etc, but humans are also animals. Mammals, to be specific.

      You could kinda say that plants breathe and so do bacteria (they respire technically) but none are animals... I don't know playing the devils advocate

      @KittieCat then why you playing devils advocate?🙂

    • 3mo

      .. Because you said you can't have a breathing organism and have it not be an animal. And technically you can if you slightly twist some definitions. Hence playing devils advocate

  • Whoever was shocked that humans are animals needs special help. Obviously we are animals.

  • Firstly, we belong in the Kingdom of aninmalia, so yeah. I dont see how we could be better than any other animal. Afterall we are all just beings that convert oxygen into co2 and water.

  • The fact that were more intelligent than other species on Earth, does not hide the fact that we're as much animals as the pets we take care of...

      Doubt what? What animal knows about there own mortality? we are the only species aware of death. Dolphins are very intelligent if that's what you're referring to
