Mammals are animals. We are a species in the category of animals.

Bible says we are made above the animals and below the angels! No-God made us in His own image. Man has his opinion and that confuses people.

Fire asked for answers in reference to science, not religion.

Yep! God is the creator of science. When asking about atoms and such and the making of things there is no other source to turn to. What you know God has made it possible to understand. It takes more effort to stand and credit what man says to be true than to have faith in God on this subject. When you can breath into earth and bring forth life I'll believe your version of science and religion. Until then, me and countless others who know the facts stand firm. Without Gods standard anything goes for right or wrong. And as far as science goes...Its all made up of evidence what to believe to be fact until information can prove otherwise. So in its-self science, like medicine.. is a practice of sorts. Unlike math that has definite answer. Figures don't lie but liars figure. That's mans saying. God say's God is true and every man is a liar. Either way, again, I'll believe what God says over any one persons wisdom.

I see women bring forth life everyday. I never saw God do it and neither did anyone else. In keeping with the guidelines of Ask, please refrain from inserting religious answers to science questions as there is an entire category for religious questions and answers.

Not true. The Bible is a records of truth of events dated back since 2000 years ago and beyond and pridicts teh coming of time even. So much so we have..our forefathers believed it..the nation was founded on it...we have AD and BC That stands for before Christ and after the Christ set as a time line. Please refrain from apply incorrect info because your opinion is not right. Science proves the bible. Therefore scientifically man and animals are not of the same origin. If so you are calling God a animal due the fact God said let us make man in our own image or a liar. And for the record God say also this..That he knits together every child. He has numbered the hairs are your head, He knew you before your even born. Not my words but Gods-Take it up with him!

Actually, the Bible says that humans are made above angels.

JonoR has a point, for it says that God told the angels to bow before Adam, and Satan refused, later becoming the devil.

He asked scientifically, not religiously. Whether you personally agree with science is a different matter than understanding what science says.

Animals according to science: multi-cellular organisms lacking rigid cell walls. That includes humans and pretty much every other living thing outside of plants, fungi, algae, and single-cell creatures such as bacteria.

If we assume that the theory of evolution is correct, yes, we are. (the theory still has some critics). This issue depend on your beliefs, I think, whether you're theist or an atheist.
