Hi,
Just something else that i wandered about, just how does evolution explain the vast intellectual, emotional, cultural social and creative abilities of humans compared to other animals. Surely the complexity of our brains is not all that much of a difference to that of a monkeys. and we don't see them pondering their existence with other monkeys around the world connected via hight tech communicational technology of their own invention... Some animals may have shown some basic intellectual ability, but the fact that us as humans are interested in and have set up experiments even to test the mental capacity of other species clearly shows that there is something dramatically different between us and them...
thanks

Let's see how your current thread does before beginning other. Post a note here as a reminder to me in a few days.

You haven't posted to the previous thread you started in over five days, and you only posted two messages total to it. You've in essence abandoned that thread, and it was such concerns that were behind my reluctance to promote this one.
We have no shortage of thread proposals. There is no niche of thread proposing waiting to be filled. Please only propose topics that you're actually interested in participating in.
If you ever find you have concerns about the direction other participants are taking one of your threads then you should report it to the Report discussion problems here: No.2 thread.
