    What I wanna know is, if we started as single-cell organisms and so did everything else.

    How the hell did we all end up so different? Obviously we're smartest by a long stretch, but the majority of animals have one over us in a department such as strength or speed. What dictated this? The geographical location of the organism?

    You'd think, surely, we'd be the best at everything given our massive advantage in brain capacity.

    I am so utterly uninformed on this subject the sheer concept of evolution baffles me.

    I'm more important to me.

    That doesn't mean I'm not an animal. It just means that, like most animals, I'm more concerned about my species than about other species.

    We are not apes anymore. We have evolved from them but are not apes anymore.
    Humans evolved from the "old" order of apes is the claim that I have heard.

    Kinda weird when you think that we're just part of a giant ecosystem. Makes worrying about things, momentarily, seem futile.
    Are you sure about that?

    I'm hairy and people in school refer me as the gorilla of Uxbridge; school people are very mean people!

    Of course I consider myself as an animal. A more evolved, sexy and intelligent animal but nonetheless, still a animal. Our conscience has acquired the delusional role of self-importance.

    what i dont get is why do we think were so important like think about it, why do we think we need to be smart and what classifies us as smart? Math science like who gives a damn. there are millions of other species out there and they dont need to work there entire lives they just straight up chill. so why cant the Humans just chill why do we need to frustrate ourselves with things we dont even have to do except some guy told us to... well i say **** that guy who cares? just live and do as u please, we were all born free and we should stay free. Were worried about an Economic Disaster but its ****ing fictional... were following the rules to Impress who? oursleves ...

    No I believe I am human but I share many trades with animals

    Like the first computer was a computer until we got an Amiga or an Apple (both are the highest form of computer excellence ). Still all of them are computers.

    Its dictated by both geographical location and food.

    For instance, a chameleon has developed specialised feet for climbing trees, because over millions of years only the best adapted to the trees survived, therefor past on their genes making the feet better and better at climbing trees. As well as having sticky tongues for catching insects, same process.

    It only takes one mutation that makes something better adapted to its enviroment to trigger a change in the whole species.

    Humans are a species of animal.
