  • We evolved from animals, therefore we are animals. Only 1 % of our genes differ from those of chimps. Humans are not vegetables or minerals, so what would consider us?

  • ...God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that moved along the earth according to their kinds.And God saw that it was good.
    Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.
    So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.-Genesis
    This is what leads me to believe that we are probably not animals.He created the animals and then seperately he says he created man.And man ruled over the animals.Not animals rule over the animals.Unless we are not man.

  • Theology aside...Everything on the earth is animal, vegetable or mineral... you decide what you are. As for me, I'm an animal...with posable thumbs.

  • We are mammals. IMHO we did not come from animals. We were made human and that's what we are.
