Quote# 31613

Why do ONLY humans have a conscience, can utilize multiple languages that are written AND spoken, why are we the only one's able to think freely and create stuff like a computer? no animal (we are not animals) has been able to create a computer or anything in the sorts!

How come birds use the starts to navigate around the globe to a tropical area during the winter, then come back? Why don't birds just stay in tropical areas and forget the cold ones? Why can't "we" evolve and be able to read the stars?

Scientists did a test, they covered the view above the birds eyes, and they got hopelessy lost and could not navigate.

"Why do ONLY humans have a conscience,

False premise

can utilize multiple languages that are written AND spoken,

Apes have been known to use sign language.

why are we the only one's able to think freely and create stuff

FAIL. We cannot create whole cities from plant fiber, dirt and spit. Termites can. So what's your point?

like a computer?

Oh.

no animal (we are not animals)

WE'RE PLANTS!



has been able to create a computer or anything in the sorts!

Define sorts.

How come birds use the starts to navigate around the globe to a tropical area during the winter, then come back?

Sensory to the magnetic fields in the Earth.

Why don't birds just stay in tropical areas and forget the cold ones?

Because otherwise their food would run scarce, over-populate and die-out.

Why can't "we" evolve and be able to read the stars?

Meaning what?

Scientists did a test, they covered the view above the birds eyes, and they got hopelessy lost and could not navigate."

Please cite this test.

It's both sad and amusing that fundtards refuse to accept that humans are animals.

"Why don't birds just stay in tropical areas and forget the cold ones? "

Then all those birds would strip the warm areas of food. Some of them evolved to take advantage of the food available in colder areas. Why can't fundies understand the most elementary common sense ideas?


"Why can't "we" evolve and be able to read the stars?"

How do you think ships navigated before GPS?

Why can't "you" evolve into an itelligent life form?

What the fuck does this have to do with anything? Is there a point to this?

We lost our fear of fire before the other species.

Shit, I'm evolved enough to read the stars. One summer with a star map is all it takes.

DevonR,

You can't think freely or create a computer. So you're not a human.

"It is of interest to note that while some dolphins are reported to have learned English -- up to fifty words used in correct context -- no human being has been reported to have learned dolphinese."

Why can't "we" evolve and be able to read the stars?

*sigh*

Words escape me. Just...fail. Massive, epic fail.

Why do humans inhabitate the whole world? Why don't we just stay in the tropic? Huh? Well, dumbass, just because the tropic is warm doesn't mean it's full of food.

Humans are not the only animals that have a conscience. It's part of a survival mechanism for social creatures, dumbass. Some humans don't seem to have a conscience, anyway. You seem to be one of them.

Before you jump into conclusion. Animals do have intelligence and can perform many of our tasks(for example, dolphins can sing, organise in groups and transmit knowledge). Moreover, apart from our awareness and conscience, human beings perform all the organic functions such as eating, breathing, and reproducing. They have many traits in common with animals such as instinct, capacity to suffer pain, etc...............and our conscience, for that matter, depends on it.

Based on human history, our vaunted ability to think is quite rudimentary.

Does there happen to be a video of the scientists putting blindfolds on those birds? And why were the scientists then unable to navigate?

11/26/2007 9:47:31 AM

cool cats

Not animals, eh

What are we? Carrot sticks, celery, flint or quartz?

Is this one of those poorly thought out "We are made in God's image" arguements?

Why can't "we" evolve and be able to read the stars?

Astronomers and navigators worldwide would like to have a word with you.

Hey, DevonR, guess what:

Ecc 3:18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

Even your own holy book disagrees with you.

Why can't "we" evolve and be able to read the stars?
If you mean, in the same way as birds, then... we don't fucking need to. Evolution doesn't work that way. Things don't get to decide how they'd like to evolve. Otherwise I'd have evolved wings and a 10-inch cock.

However, your epic failage is understandable since you are clearly missing the evolutionary trait, common to most humans, that render magical birdlike star navigation unnecessary: a cerebrum.

no animal (we are not animals) has been able to create a computer or anything in the sorts

But on the other hand, you can't tear a zebra to shreds with your bare teeth or locate mosquitoes in the dark by sonar, either. We've all evolved the skills we need for our niche in life.

Why can't "we" evolve and be able to read the stars?
We have been reading the stars for millenia. Not just for navigation, as others have pointed out, but also for a calender- the sighting of a certain constellation meant it was time to plant, harvest, or a religious feast.

So since birds use their vision to see things and navigate, they can't create computers?

And you want us to go back to navigating by the stars? That was a few centuries back, my stupid friend.

Because we have evolved to have superior brains moron.

anti-nonsense

Chimpanzees have a basic moral sense. This has been proven. You lose. Also, some apes have been taught to understand both sign language and spoken English and use sign language themselves (they can't speak English because their vocal cords aren't set up to make the range of sounds humans can).

Also, humans can read the stars, we just have to LEARN how. We don't need to have an innate ability to read the stars because we don't migrate long distances.

DevonR should go get waterboarded, then come back and tell us all about human conscience.
