    This thread's seems alot like that Human nature thread. We're a race of curiousity sorta, and because we can think and function on a plain far superior to most other forms of life here, we can satisify, and discover our curiousity. But the curirousity killed the cat quote kinda plays a role in why we are totally against nature. We like lost our abilitiy to function with nature, we can still do it, but it's not "natrual" anymore if you will to agree with nature. That's why some of you seem to think we are just simply a race of malice and destruction. But I doubt in the beginnings this wasn't the case, we are also naturally lazy, and therefore want to find ways to not work as hard. And our "animal agression" to do what we want and have nothing stand in the way, is what makes us appear violent heartless race.

    At least, that's what I'm thinking. It really makes sense when you think about it.

    The human nature thread is about the nature of humans... this thread is about the description of what a human is.

    Hmm... nice description. it does make some sense, when i thought bout it

    What is a human?

    A human is an generalized animal, with the capacity to adapt to almost any type of environment. To make up for lack of natural defense mechanisms against the elements, human have the ability to manipulate the environment to meet his/her needs (tools, equipment, clothing).

    Yes, by that definition in the dictionary, then every animal can be a human, because every animal on the planet is able to do all of those listed things, to be human is about brain size, pure and simple, we have bigger brains, therefore we can do alot more with them.

    Here is the simple opinion.

    Humans are humans because we were created in gods own image, animals weren't. Animals were created so that we can be here, so we wouldn't starve. Also we are different then animals in a number of ways. but here are a few.

    We feel love for another in that we mate not just to procreate, but laso to share that love, that bond, were the love is so strong that two souls become one, animals do not.

    We manipulate our enviornment to satisfy our needs, we make tools and we invent, we seek knowledge, we our extremely social in that we prefere to live in mass cummunities.

    And finally the biggest reason is simply the fact that we have language. I can't believe nobody mentioned that yet.

    Funny you say TRILLIONS of years, when realistically, this planet's only been around for 4.6 BILLION years. lol
