I sometimes ponder the common belief that humans are “so much” smart than animals. Are we really? Why – because we’re the only beings dumb enough to destroy our planet? Whoops – that came out a little harsh…but really…have you ever considered how self-centered it is to believe we’re sooo smart, just because we’re the ones doing the comparing?
A recent article from the NY Times touches on this: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/21/opinion/sunday/think-youre-smarter-than-animals-maybe-not.html?_r=1&ref=todayspaper&pagewanted=all
Let me know what you think, you big dumb animal you.
