In Defence of Humanity
Without coming across all defensive, we thought we should remind readers that there are, despite what people have been saying, some pretty clear differences between humans and animals.
a) We will not tricked by basic traps- ie flowers that look like other bees so that they mate with them, or eyes on butterflies that look like predators.
b) We are (usually) less hairy. We wear eyeliner.
c) Time, clocks and watches. We understand about death, and that the sun is a very, very long way away.
d) We make tools, like hammers and water blasters.
e) We outthink our instincts. We tell lies.
f) Art. No apes make art and if they do it looks like a Jackson Pollock, which doesn’t count.
g) We went to the moon. And no, the dogs and apes that went into space first don’t really count because who put them in the rockets in the first place?
h) Shakespeare. And especially Hamlet, though I haven’t read it.
i) We fall in actual love and only kill when there are wars or a good reason.
