Why do people feel more important than other animals?

Report as

Because animals dont have a voice and thus, cant advocate for themselves, people take advantage of this and consider themselves to be more important, this also gives people the belief they can do whatever they like to animals, such as turn them into a winter coat.

Okay so if the animals were on top you don't think that they would treat us how we treat them..? We are on top for a point.

If you presented that thought to other animals in terms they understood do u think they would agree?

Do you really think animals have those powers of logic?

Reek:
So go live like an animal for a week
An after that you'll soon find out why man kind is on top.
If you don't like it, like I said one week

Because we eat them, swat them, ride them, wear them and imprison them.
Of course insects will outlive the human race.
The rest we'll probably ruin along with ourselves.

Nonetheless I think thats in millions of years time.

I would never be unkind to animals.

I found someone else's list of 50 things animals can't do.
Some I disagree with

Sample
11. Tracking the movements of celestial bodies.<-- don't they migrate ?
12. Whale watching.
13. The use of graphic arts.
14. Provision of artificial light.
15. Provision of artificial heat.
16. Home decoration. <-- bower birds collect blue ?
17. Modeling clothing.
18. Making jewelry.
19. Fashion design.
20. Plumbing. <-- beavers make dams ?

So do other animals....
Report as
Which ones ?
Report as
If you study tribes of the same animals then you will clearly see that they aren't mindlessly killing each other and they actually care and play with each other.

And some people don't have a moral code.

Animals : play till hungry ?
Report as
Yup. Play then hunt together as a team and eat together. I'd even say some wild animals are more moral than humans.

We are not animals, we were created humans with dominion over the animals, fish, and fowl; that is how God made us. Read Genesis 1 & 2.

Because we walk upright, can think & plan ahead of time, can use electricity , gas & technology but most of all because we can carry & use guns, which puts us top of the food chain.take the guns away & we'd be lucky to be halfway up it.

Because God made MAN (humans) in His image and gave MAN (humans) dominion over ALL other things.

God made us in His image, we think, and we are free to use his other magnificent creatures as we see fit. Food, work, companionship. With respect, of course.

God gave dominion over the animals. Animals are not spiritual.

I can think of a lot of people who are much lower than animals. I would seriously rather save a cow than certain people.
