Ehh. Yeah I used the wrong word. I thought about after I had posted & had other more important things to do.

Like I said maybe not the correct answer but still an answer. I didn't know I had to give the correct answer in this group. I didn't see you saying anything to the one that replied with "we are not covered in hair " or "we have thumbs ".


Quoting Anonymous:

Why do you assume I found it hateful? To be honest, I don't know how your reply could be taken as 'hateful' by anyone.



I found your reply laughable. If you had stated that IRL, crickets would have started chirping.




Quoting twyliatepeka:

Other animals do not worship idols or gods.



Does your dog go to Sunday service?



It is a way we are different. Not necessarily the way op meant but it does make us different. & yes I do realize not all humans identify with a religion, you must be one of them to have found my reply so hateful.









Quoting Anonymous:

That's ridiculous. Honestly probably the most un-educated response yet.














Religion...sheesh smh..











Quoting twyliatepeka:

Not much because in some ways we are like pretty much every animal.





Religion would be a good one though.

 Photo: Most people have heard of Koko, the gorilla who could speak about 1000 words in  Sign Language, and understand about 2000 in English. What most people don’t know, however, is that Koko was an avid Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood fan. When Fred Rogers took a trip out to meet Koko for his show, not only did she immediately wrap her arms around him and embrace him, she did what she’d always seen him do onscreen: she proceeded to take his shoes off.

I'm alarmed that this many people think humans are the only ones with opposible thumbs.

We reason and have opposable thumbs.  Critical thinking skills are not developed in most other species as highly as it is in ours. 

Although sometimes, I wonder how well it's developed in some humans....I honestly do.

The ONLY thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize!
