Posted on 08/26/2017 5:15:35 AM PDT by Raymond Pamintuan
Modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) are not just incrementally superior to any other hominid or animal; were qualitatively different, both as the only known technologically-intelligent species and by virtue of dozens of unique abilities.
It is not a claim but a demonstrable fact that anatomically modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) are vastly superior to every other form of life and, for whatever reason, all the genetic mutations that make us unique and confer over 40 traits and behaviors that result in evolutionary advantages over every other animal, occurred within a short period of time, within just one genus, and nowhere else.

We have thumbs...
Oh’ a brain to show us have to use them...
Because we can Google the Answer from orbit.
Let’s see, first thing this morning I had two cat puddles to clean up. It’s a dominance issue. I let them in/out and fed them, all before taking care of my own needs. I wonder who is superior to whom.
Cats have also provided scientific proof that the world is not flat. If it were, they’d have knocked everything off by new.
Does this article make Edward Watson a racist bigot homophobe white Supremacist Nazi?
We started cooking our food that lead to more protein that lead to bigger brains. We have big brains.
But if dolphins had thumbs, they would build stunning underwater cities...right?
Good grief, the lack of basic common sense knows no bounds.
One word: “Plastics”
Yes! Humans are vastly more intelligent, and in some cases, vastly more stupid. Humans are not just monkeys with a bigger brain. There is a qualitative difference. We are capable of abstraction and we can use symbols to represent those abstractions.
Discovering that elephants are more intelligent than we thought is a good thing, but it doesn’t change the fact that humans are immensely more intelligent.
My dogs are a HELLUVA LOT SMARTER
Than the 47%
Kinder & gentler too
And better looking
Humans are also exponentially more evil than animals
The answer is in the Book of Genesis
We are created in the image of Yahuah (God).
Nothing, God, or aliens? There’s a 4th possibility: we ourselves. We could have intelligently designed our descendants.
Cave Mom: Go mate with Alpha. He’s clever, he can make a spear, and he’s better at throwing it too. You’ll always have food. Forget Beta, he’s a handsome brute but a brute is all he’ll ever be and it won’t be long either because he doesn’t learn. Always remember, people make people like themselves. So if you want Alpha babies, you need an Alpha. Don’t argue, your father is on my side.
After a while (not an eon) the process will snowball.
The article presumes that, absent an external factor, breeding is random. But as soon as people understood how they reproduce, breeding was by design.
“humans are also exponentially more evil than animals”
Indeed! The answer is found in Genesis 1:27 and is known as Imago Dei.
We have a soul. We also have a cerebral cortex and the ability to conceptualize and the only creature that builds tools.
Because God said so!
