• Humans ARE animals

    Humans believing they must somehow separate themselves from nature by raping the land, taking what they want, and giving little to nothing back is what is making this world a complete state of chaos. We are animals, but if you're asking if other animals are smarter than humans I would have to say yes. Other animals can communicate and love and learn just as we can, the only thing that makes us special is that we act as a virus; working together to slowly destroy our host (this earth and clearly the life upon it.) Humans are the only animal in the world that seems heart set on destroying the whole planet over this preproposed notion that we need MORE. Greed is the core of the human heart nowdays and our media only works to embed that into our feeble minds. Is our toxic air and water and poison we feed our children and our outlook on the future so much better than it was when humans were living off the land? I think not, but then again with all the idiot humans in the world I'll have somehoe all butthurt about this comment and wanting to change my opinion because we LOVE to tell ourselves how smart we are and how we're the best when we all need to take a step back and see all the horrible things we have done to this planet and ourselves. Everything is connected, if we don't learn that sooner then we will destroy ourselves. If we were so intelligent wouldn't we being doing more good in the world instead of creating problems which leads to "solutions" that only seem to create more problems. You cannot treat a disease by resolving symptoms of it, you must find the ROOT of the problem first.

  • Animals are surely smarter than humans

    What is the definition of smart?
    Having or showing a quick-witted intelligence
    Intelligence and smartness depends on many things. Lions can kill prey effectively, efficiently and intelligently. That is smartness. Humans may have the logic or supposed smartness but does that increase our survival, does that help us? OF COURSE NOT. We are destroying ourselves and the world. Is that intelligence? No. That is foolhardiness, complete stupidity. Animals don't do things like that and have no avarice and are self sufficient. They don't go about polluting the earth. They don't lead to a mass extinction as we did in Holocene.
    Thus, animals are surely smarter than us but we with our rash, impulsive foolishness have suppressed their intelligence and made them stupid... Or so we think

  • Animal are our sacred brothers.

    Yes, I believe all animals are indeed smarter.
    I may come off as weird or a "shunned-outcast", or perhaps even an imbecile, or as one may call "a troll", according to the standards of the common person, but i cannot deny that animals have better instinct at times, which we do not. =(

  • Human accomplishments are of no value to most animals.

    We cannot base our debate about our "superior intelligence to animals" on our accomplishments that are of no value to animals. Why would animals visit the moon or surf the web? They have no need or desire to do these things. However, some animals can do things that we cannot, nor will ever be able to do, simply because they have needs that we do not have. I quote the Daily Mail when I say: "Evolutionary biologists claim that in some cases animals have superior brains to us and that many of their abilities are merely misunderstood by humans." Check it out for yourself below!

    On another note, all animals deserve respect, because they are all truly amazing in their own way, and I believe they are, sometimes, smarter than humans. Besides, what's the point of all humans having intelligence AND reason if many don't use either one for anything useful?

  • Many animals have yet to be discovered.

    In spite of fact that humans are the direct cause of the extinction of over 100 species a day, some of which we never knew existed, some people still insist with absolute confidence that we are smarter than them (since we wiped them out)! Has there been some kind of test that all species have taken, containing no human bias that proves that humans are more intelligent? I see people all the time that are WAY stupider than my dog for example, no question about it by any measure. And my dog is not the smartest dog. Which is not to say that some people aren't pretty smart, perhaps even smarter than my dog (in theory), but MOST people aren't and all these people in the NO column pointing out all these things people have invented, well, YOU didn't invent them did ya? What did YOU ever invent? You're probably just another of the millions of dummies in line at the supermarket with a cart full of factory farmed poison who thinks that cruelty is the same as intelligence. Compassion and kindness are intelligent; be kind, be intelligent, and forget about hierarchy and dominance, they can only lead to misery for all the inhabitants of this beautiful planet.

  • Animals are smarter

    Humans seem to be smarter to a lot of people but are you just saying that because you are a human and you do not want to be stupider than a chimp or pigeon or whale?Also there are a ton of animals that have bigger brains,and the bigger the brain the smarter the person/animal(scientific fact)

  • Some not all

    Yes, animals are smarter than we think, but not all animals are smarter. It depends on what you mean by ''intelligence''. You can't say having the ability to create cars makes you smarter right? Just because you have the ability to do something others can't does not make you smarter. That is like saying a all A science student is smarter than a all A math student. They are two completely different kinds of things. Now, some animals are smarter than humans in some ways. Humans (not that i know of) have no claws, sharp teeth, ect. We mainly rely on intelligence to survive. Yet you can see beavers creating dams without using robots and stuff. Some animals (dolphins, elephants, corvids, ants, ect.) are scientifically proven to be smarter than humans, at least a few humans. Again, animals can be smarter in different ways, and creating human things does not make you smarter. Animals create their own stuff too sometimes, so you might as well say they are smarter with that logic. Yes, I believe some animals are smarter than humans

  • Animals are the smartest

    Do we have sixth sense no where as animals have they guard our homes also if we take care of them congo chimp is same type as humane can walk on two legs even it say not only humans are advance even they are also being advance in different ways

  • Animals are smart

    They are smarter than us you can ask to gane goodal animals such as chimpanzees a goooooooooooooood mind they are swee ee ee ee ee ee ee ee ee ee ee ee ee ee ee ee ee ecee ee eet baby chimps are very cute did u see how they find termites

  • Humans are earth's dominant species.

    We are able to out compete any animal in any given environment
    due to our ability to adapt and general understanding of the environment and the animals within it (which other animals don't).
    If we had the complex of our primitive wild brethren then we wouldn't
    even have the conscious to stop trying to expand and eventually
    out compete every animal on the planet to extinction like other
    animals do to each other naturally. The fact that humans even have
    empathy for other inferior animals shows that we have an understanding of life and death that other animals do not have
    capacity to understand. Animals do not care or try to understand other species and do not care if other species go extinct as some species such as the beaver destroy environments all the time.
    Lastly from a more scientific stand point (animals don't do science)
    our skull to body ratio is much larger than any other animal showing that based off the dimensions of our skull shows that we have a huge
    advantage over other animals' ability to think and comprehend
    things. Look at all the incredible human achievements in engineering and technology that has allowed us to not only survive but live comfortably so much to were we have to manage our weight were animals barely even scrape by, were not even in competition with other animals anymore in fact we harvest them, ride them, and train them as pets.
    In conclusion you can watch all the animals struggling in the wild you want on the internet/ tv and believe they are smarter than you as you watch them from you're comfortable chair thinking they have out competed us and think all humans are fools except yourselves
    because you think animals are so smart, but in reality the people
    who are vegetarians and animal lovers are only that way because they need to find something to make them feel superior to other people because they have some sort of deep connection to earth that doesn't seem to have the same connection with them, it's snotty.

  • Is this a joke?

    Maybe animals are smarter than the idiots who answered 'yes' to this question (look at the intelligence level of the 'yes' responses compared to the 'No' responses if you want a good laugh), but overall absolutely not.

    Humans are squishy little meat Popsicles with bad senses, poor reflexes, and no biological defenses to ward off predators. And yet we are the most overwhelmingly powerful apex predators in the history of the planet. Why? Because our well developed brains allow us to think, cooperate, create and learn, the way no other creature can even fathom.

    What animal other than humans could build, or even begin to understand, the computer you're using to answer this inane question? What other animal could develop advanced abstract language, or calculus, or massive cities, or the Internet, or highly developed global communications systems and economies? What other animal could go to the moon, or take pictures of atoms, or create timeless works of art? For those of you who say that humans having wars make us dumb, I challenge you to find an animal that could fight an advanced strategic conflict even if it WANTED to.

    Someone mentioned our laziness compared to the hard work of spending all day looking for food like animals. They said our grocery stores have made us dumb, whereas animals have to go out and hunt, which takes hard work, and therefore intelligence, apparently. Really? Grocery stores and laziness exist because we have thought and built our way OUT OF THE FOOD CHAIN. That is an incomprehensively MASSIVE upgrade that is unique to humans.

    In the end it can be summed up like this: we keep animals in zoos and dog kennels for our amusement, and rarely EVER have to worry about being eaten alive on the way to work. Animals, on the other hand, fear for their lives when we come around. Massive lions will run away from 3 year old girls because they know what humans are capable of. We, and only we, are capable of manipulating the environment of the entire planet and wiping out all life on earth. Should we be proud of the havoc we're wreaking? Of COURSE not. But we can be proud of our unique ability to understand and fix the problem.

  • Seriously ! No of course human are clever than animals

    How could you say animals are smarter than humans? While i think this is quite a silly question.It's obviously that human are clever than animals. Animals can't invent an airplane,cars or technology. This is a common sense. However you can't say neither of them are stupid. Animals aren't stupid but they are just different than human.Also some human can be stupid as well.While human society devide in different types such as stupid and normal,clever and extraordinary clever such as Albert Einstein or Steven Hawken. But those extraordinary clever are very less in society . While only 5 % of those exist in society. But we mostly have normal people which is about 70 %.But animals society aren't like human society. Every animals in different species are equal.But what make so much different between human and animals is about the nature environment.Compare human and chimpanzee. We share 99 % DNA with chimpanzee but why chimpanzee can't be clever as human ? Because the environment doesn't provide much. They may also being pressured by the environment. Chimpanzee might fall into victims to some animals. Also they have to struggle a lot in rainforest for survival for example suffer from disease and other animalsEnvironment play a big important role.It can determine wheter you are stupid or clever,bad or good.But the nature environment already put in categories which one should belong to strongest and which one to weakest.While human belong to strongest.Now a day we have influence from technology which make human even more clever.But it also follows problem such as global warming,conflict and wars,bullying, and crisis. But those problem comes from selfish and greedy.Selfishness and greedy make people stupid.Those who devote Yes should better think twice again.Being an animals is suffering.It would be nice if you guys comment sometimes on my argument or press like but don't just ignore please.I extra try to write an good argument .THANK YOU.

  • Humans are definitely smarter than stupid animals!

    The key differences between human and animal cognition arise in four areas:

    The ability to recombine different types of knowledge and information to gain new understanding
    The ability to generalise apply a “rule” or solution for a known problem to a new and different situation
    The ability to create symbolic representations of sensory input and to easily understand them
    The ability to detach raw sensory and perceptual input from modes of thought.

  • Humans are smarter than animals

    Come on guys!!!! Who's the one facing computers now? Who's the one out there inventing new things for our development? And who's out there conserving animals in there natural habitats?? It's us!!! Our ability to think, to solve problems, and to communicate makes the smartest and the superior among all other animals!! NO DOUBT!!

  • Name an Animal That Has Been to the Moon

    Humans are the most intelligent and most dominant species and always have been since our existence. We are capable of deciding the future of earth. We have been to the moon, developed modes of transportation throughout the world, we are able to communicate with other humans from across the world and we are capable of wiping out other species as a whole. Even the basic aspects of civilization like the development of language is far more advanced for any animal to accomplish. How certain people actually believe an animal is smarter than humans dumbfounds me.

  • Animals are not smarter than humans.

    Animals are not smarter than humans because they have smaller brains and they cannot use language in the same way that people can. Humans have invented all kinds of machines to help us have better lives, but animals have never used anything but the most rudimentary tools. Clearly, humans are smarter.

  • They are not...!

    Although, individually, some animals might appear to be as smart or even smarter than some underdeveloped human individuals; they are not the intellectuals that set the humans apart from them. Perhaps, when they present a copy of their comparative analysis with recommendations for change for themselves and us, I'll reconsider.

  • Humans are now kind-of dumb

    No, because now a days people are dumb and sit on their lazy bums all day. Animals have to find food. They can't just walk into a grocery store like us. They don't have cars; they have to walk to find food. An example would be turkey's; during the day they go and hunt food. It takes them at least half of their time to find food and the rest is spent killing that animal. The reason behind this is because that have no protection. We are too lazy to realize that when we watch tv it is making us dumber.

  • No, but human "cleverness" works for us and against us.

    Humans in a nutshell are better at manipulating their environment. We strive to make our lives easier. This can be seen in every technological advancement. Our main purpose to use our enlarged brain is to A. Make ourselves more comfortable in this harsh environment B. To get more things, or "greed". But the "cleverness" of the human brain works against itself, as you can see...We are destroying our habitat. Humans will wait until the last minute to try get their habitat back in order before it is completely destroyed. There lies the problem...If we truly were smart we would plan ahead for this. Animals just do simple tasks and are not as "clever" as humans. One final nugget to think about. Humans "think" they are very smart or intelligent, when all we can really do is manipulate our environment better than other animals. We cannot create anything like a "God", or something to that magnitude.
