animals have the same value as humans. animals feel pain and pleasure just as humans do. the only thing that separates us is knowledge. and to say that we are more valuable just because we have more knowledge would be the same as saying i'm more valuable as a person then some one else just because i'm smarter then him which is untrue.

Well as you say that animal are really like humans. I agree, because we are from the animals. But what we are more valuable is that we have intelligence. When our mum scolds me(coz I am stupid) I told her to think of the other animals which were stupider than me. If in an animal family, one is the cleverest, it still cannot be as intelligent as human, don't say they are more intelligent that human.
Intelligence----that is what human depends on. Without intelligence, we cannot survive. The world would become more black, (though if you say that this gives more land for animals to survive). God give cleverness and intelligence to us to make us special, not make us stupid, and he,,,,,,,, makes us really, really, really valuable.

ok i Have already stated my view on the intelligence aspect of this debate. intelligence does not mean we are more valuable. it just means we have more intelligence. lets say i have more intelligence then you (just an example) does that make me as a human more valuable then you? no it doesn't. and i would prefer to leave any sort of god out of it sense god is not a fact and instead a belief. maybe i should have been more clear on the topic. so what im going to argue next is that animals are more valuable to the earth then humans. according to http://www.livescience.com... over 18 million acres of trees are lost each year due to humans which hurts the atmosphere and ultimately destroys this earth not other animal does that amount of harm to this planet called home. their for we would be less valuable to the earth.

Well you are wrong intelligence DOES means something. Have you been a child or not? The teachers AND the parents love the ones who gets top 3 all the time! Intelligences makes us valuable BECAUSE NONE OF OTHER LIVING THINGS ARE MORE INTELLIGENCE THAN US. SO WE INTELLIGENCE ONES NEED TO BE PROTECTED! It is a big need to be intelligence.

In the social life, parents, businessman and government wants intelligent people. If there is two man, one intelligent one not...... People would chose the intelligent one. This shows that intelligence really means something.

As a chooser of this debate challenge, HUMANS ARE MORE VALUABLE THAN ANIMALS.

Im not sure what you are exactly trying to say about intelligence but it sounds like you are trying to say is teachers and parents are much more valuable the children which is not true, and what would we, the intelligent ones need to be protected against other then ourselves. humans as a group are dangerous and suicidal with their use of resources. we use them with out rationing. but enough on the intelligence piece of this debate. i would like my opponent to also argue the other points i brought up such as being more valuable to the earth.

after sleeping on wether or not humans are valuable i decided in order to have value you must be valued by something else. the only thing that actually would could and should value humans are humans. humans have decimated over 322 species of animals, produce 220 million pounds of waster a year and even as said above destroy 18 million acres of trees this is 784,080,000,000 square feet a year. that is roughly the size of panama check it out on a map. so yes only to the human species do we have any sort of value. that not even always true. as seen in the past with african American slavery. two genecides of the jewish people including the holocuast, and years and years of unprovoked repression shows that humans do not value each other.

huh looks like my opponent has missed his turn to rebuttal against my points. so im just going to let those same facts stand and add a few more. human produce around 710 billion of acres of green house gasses a year which is destroying the atmosphere. humans act suicidal on how they treat the earth. to us earth is life and we seem to destroy it willingly without giving it second thoughts. no other animal can do that nor have they done that. to make this point clear im going to personify the earth. if the earth could make a choice on who's more valuable who would it pick? the humans who are destroying it? or the millions and millions of animals who thrive on it? the answer is clear to anyone who isn't a moron. their are also. their are about 8.74 million speices of animals in the world this means their are hundreds of billions of animals in this world and to say humans are more valuble would be both selfish and ignorant.

What do you mean by not typing the arguements,out means I AM AFRAID OF YOU THIS DUDE? I never feared of you bad behavior.
If you say that humans destroy the living environment, well...... Humans are making changes, Good ones to the environment.
Humans are valuable due to the intelligence and specials they have.

please use correct grammar, i cant understand what your typing.
you argue that humans are changing but offer no facts to back up your statement. these incredibly harsh actions humans are taking to destroy this earth are happening now. if we continue like this in 100 years their will be no more rain forests. rain forests have survived millions and millions of years without humans and it will take us 200 to kill it. 2015 was the largest year of deforestation sense 2005 which means humans are going back to their destructive ways and not CHANGING at all. so yes to the earth humans are worthless and not valuable at all. i have already debunked his intelligence argument multiple times and my opponent has not made any sense at all through his last 3 arguments. he/she has provided no evidence nor reasoning behind the points he made and offered no argument over my facts and evidence.

monetary value has very little value over all. once you die the money you earn here on earth will be useless in most situations exept for maybe burning your body if their is no other fuel for fire. this also shows how humans are only valuable to other humans.

Humans have been valued at around $3 million each. More valuable than most animals.
