I Love Humans More by SionnaDehr I Love Humans More by SionnaDehr
Because to be honest, as much as I love to look at wolves, lions, tigers, bear cubs, and the like (cows, horses, ect) I kinda sorta prefer my own race over them. If I had the choice to save a mortally wounded dog and a mortally wounded human, I'd choose the human. You know why? Because we are above the animals.

From a Christian pov, we were put above the animals and charged to take care of them. God never said that we couldn't eat them and that killing them for food and fur was a sin. No, you know why? Because animals are just that, animals. They have no concept of right and wrong. Does that mean we should be cruel to them? No, it just means that we are above them not the other way around.
Evolutionwise, well, seeing as how we are higher on the evolutionary scale then, let's say, a sheep, I think the answer is a given. Food chain wise, we're the smarter because that's how we evolved (apparently).

I have no problem with people who wish to eat only vegetation for the rest of their lives. Some people do it because they genuinely hate the taste of meat. If you do it because you like animals so much that you don't want to eat them, that's fine, just remember that the rest of us think they taste good and look cute. And also, keep in mind that animals cannot compare to a human so don't treat them like they are. Instead, treat them how you would treat a living thing because they are living things. And that also means, giving them a quick easy death before you skin them and take the meat off their bones to give you strong muscles, better stamina, more protein then beans could ever give you, and heal your crohn's disease (if you have crohn's it is best to not go vegetarian unless meat screws up your stomach).

*takes deep breath*
I believe that I have made my point.

What's funny is that most people think that most humans are selfish, rapid serial killers.

When dolphins are exactly the same thing. They rape other dolphins and have even tried to rape human women. Chimpanzees kill for fun too, and even cannibalize.
Honestly, some animals are no different than us.

Sorry for not being a kind human, but I would rather keep my (if) child's life than an animal's.

That's just life. Life doesn't come with rainbows and happiness all the time.

I see alot of people around the webs claiming that "animals are so much better" as if they were somehow superior.
They aren't "better", they're intellectually inferior in term of species, and therefore easier to handle.
They might be better for some when it comes to love, because you can make them love you without too many complications. Their needs are simple. Meet them and they'll love you.
Humans are more complex, both their enviroment and needs are drastically different from other animals.
I don't think that humans are morally superior, but neither do I think that they are morally inferior to the other animals.
Both humans and many other species kill in the pursuit of makes, both within and outside our respective species.
We're just better at it thanks to our massive brains......

There is no such thing as unconditional love, non-human-animal lovers, the conditions for love in a dog is just easier to meet.
Within human romance true love, is the most important condition that each partner make the other feel how they want to feel.
If you love someone who makes you feel weak, wothless and pathetic....Can it really be called true love?
Love by its definition is not unconditional, there is always reason why - Cause and effect.
We love that wich is good, and despise that wich is bad - Anything else would be madness, not love.
The other animals are exactly the same in this manner, they don't love the things that harm them - They love those who care for them.
The only exceptions are results of insanity and madness.

When people claim that "animals are better than humans" I ask. By what standard? Do you determine it in terms of  morals, intelligence, speed, strenght or capacity for love? Pick one and i'll explain why you're wrong. The only way in wich they are better is in they are more convenient for you as a means to fulfill your own needs.


That being said.
I feel a deep love towards the human race, a species with great potential that no single person has ever succeded in fully realizing - But i simply can not respect someone whom neglects to cultivate theirs.
The people I love the most are those who fight, struggle and strive to reach even higher than they've ever been before.
The ones who pursue the fulfillment of their own desires without sacrificing others to achieve theirs goals. Heroes.

.......................you realize that humans are a part of the animal kingdom... right? How are we above animals when we are also animals? 

In my opinion, yes I think we may be the most intelligent, but with great intelligence comes great stupidity.......

Humans are no better than any other animal on the planet, so don't think they are. I believe that most the other animals are much smarter than humans in many ways.

Humans are just better. That's why we're at the top of the food chain.
We have heightened intelligence, as well as a capacity for deeper thinking and the ability to have morals.

Some mother wolfs have taken care of human babies instead of killing them (such as Dina Sanichar, Kamala, and Amala). In Alaska a "wildlife agency personnel" killed  14 adult wolfs, soon after they found 14 wolf cubs and also killed them all. Some animals of all kinds have looked after human infants when they could have just killed them. A man can leave a dog and never come back, a dog will always wait for you no matter what. And unlike us selfish humans (you and me included!) they will love you NO MATTER what. ^_^

We are no "smarter" than any other animal, we have developed in different ways, because it's all about comparison. Animals have been surviving in the wild for millions and millions of years, and if we were thrown into the wild we would probably die in a pretty short amount of time. So if you were to look at it that way, the animals are smarter than us. Humans should never be seen as above the other species, because we are not the higher power, believe it or not. I would say that the true rulers of the world are viruses and microorganisms(which are animals).
And one more thing: Humans are animals.

We rose above being in the wild and at the nature of the things around us.
Other apex predators have natural weapons like teeth and claws, we have an elevated intelligence that allowed us to adapt.

But aren't our societies also located "in the wild?" There are still things of nature that are around our communities, and other animals have their own communities as well.. no matter how much bigger and more destructive ours are.
What defines intelligence? It's a matter of opinion.

We're animals and nobody should over power another species. I personally believe animals are better and deserve so much better then us. We may live longer,but gives us no right to treat animals like shit or abuse them.

I am fine with them eating animals, but when they hide behind a god to justify it, they are making as mistake.
They are also making a mistake when justifying it with "humans are higher than animals".
And do not use the word "god" as if any god has the right to be called "THE" god. It pisses me off when people use "God" as a name... The self-righteous bastards...
