Is there any unique possitive quality that humans have that no other animal has?
No. I have yet to see anything that sets humans aside from other animals that is not in degree. That is, we may be smarter than a rabbit or frog, but both animals have intelligence.
[I have pondered and re-pondered this question many a time..If any one has information I have overlooked, please share!]
Do (other) animals have souls?
I would say YES, but maybe not ALL animals. most mammals clearly do (as far as I'm concerend). I don't know about worms or bacteria...
In what way are YOU better than a chimpanzee?
I don't consider myself better than a chimpanzee. But if you'd like a forced answer, I would say my upbringing in this futuristic society with so much knowledge at my fingertips.
In what way is a chimpanzee better than you?
I don't consider chimps as being better than humans, either.
But, if I must.. chimps (in the wild, at least) have a more natural lifesyle.
What is more degrading:
having an ape as an ancestor
or having dirt as an ancestor ?
Dirt. I don't consider having an ape as an ancestor degrading. (in fact, some scientists classify humans as apes, so either way.)
(This question is a bit biased, as it ignores the idea that in Genesis the dirt is mixed with the Holy Spirit. )
What is worse, killing an entire species of, say, birds, or killing one human?
They are both very bad..but my answer is the bird species.
In certein scenarios it would depend, though. for example, if it was accidental..or If the human you killed was the last human alive, thus you have killed that species.
If it were a matter of saving the bird species or homo sapiens, i would have to choose us humans.
