When your box of puppies cures cancer, then your argument will be valid.
Until then, I'm not "pretty" sure I'm superior to animals, I know I am.
...man, when the ZA hits, there's going to be a LOT of hippie zombies...
Edit: Oh, and fact: if you were to die in a contained space, your cat would start eating you within twelve hours. Fact.
Beat the cat to the punch...
This response cracks me up. All those wasted words typed and you totally miss the point. You dont seem to understand that Technology and Progress are NOT the same thing and never have been.
Everything you mention is superficial, materialistic in nature, and honestly, quite ignorant.
Penicillin is a naturally occurring extract of bread mold which humans discovered totally by accident by Alexander Fleming, not "developed" as you so mistakenly put it.
Landing on the moon...BIG DEAL! Wow, we sure helped the universe out by landing on the moon. What good has it done to benefit the planet? The people? NONE. Only benefactors are big corporations hellbent on weapons production and profit margins. Do you think there might be a reason why they have never gone back?
Then Mr. genius calls on the "devices" we use everyday as if these cheap chinese slave goods are somehow a measure in the improvement of the human condition! Wowee! We cant balance budgets, can't live one day without constant warfare, have crooked politicians and banksters destroying the planet, have fukushima radiation spilling into the pacific, yet somehow in your world ,the fact that humans can produce cheap plastic goods filled with chinese electronics makes them superior to all other life on earth! Take a good look at hurricane sandy, those new yorkers were ready to kill each other over a gallon of gasoline.
And for the final insult, you point to the fact that humans can eat all other species as something to hang your hat on. Good job buddy, you can eat all other species and that makes you so special! OMG somebody get this kid some help. Take away the ammo and you are nothing but prey.
A superior species would see that all life is precious. A superior species would understand they exist as only a small part of a larger whole, living synergistically in unison with the resources given to us. A superior species would refuse to be defined by the things they produce but rather whether those devices positively affected the world they live in A superior species would understand that devices and cheap trinkets do not do anything but satiate the materialistic needs of the braindead masses who need these devices to maintain their fancy digital lifestyles inside the matrix.
If anything, your response proves your sector of the human species is dumbed down to the point of being zombies themselves. I can only assume you are a card carrying member. Were you one of the braindead sheeple on black friday? I suppose my video link pissed u off then.
And btw, if you didnt already know this, humans haven't found a cure for cancer either! But then again, dogs would never think of making medicine in the name of profit margins like big pharma.
Way to go dude, good luck with your materialistic existence. I hope your gadgets and devices keep you warm at night. You better hope the electricity stays on so you can keep your dreamworld alive.
Do you see all the hype regarding zombies these days? They are talking about you. YOU are the zombie.
BOX OF PUPPIES FTW!
