Great apes have been observed chewing plants to make an ointment to treat their aching limbs.
Isn't this just proof that the only difference between animals and humans is that our brains are in most cases simply further developed than animals brains and that this planet we live in was not specifically designed for us, not that I think it was designed at all.
Bonobos and chimps share 99% of human DNA they lack some higher features but this report doesn't surprise me
We share over half our genes with the Fruit Fly.
I honestly believe that if you sent an orangutan or chimp through the education system they would come out smarter than some of the people I went to school with
I didn't know that but I'm sure to your average believer that would all be irrelevant because all it would prove is that the raw material we are made up of is largely the same.
What I think the report shows is that the difference between animals and humans is much smaller than some would think in terms of mental abilities, emotions etc... thus making a very good case against the idea that this planet was designed specifially for us.
Shouldn't we wipe out all the other intelligent animals so they don't try to out-compete us or try to kill us all off.
Is that a comment on the education system or the ppl who engage in it?
Elephant, lizards, giraffe, buffalo and other antelope have been observed eating specific plants to self medicate. Not just primates.
Honeyguides have learned to lead humans to bees nests to feed on the leftovers
Animals are amazing
Yes. Yes we should. Start with he ants tho. They have the numbers and are quite gross.
What do you mean like assassinate president Trump?
So this is old news? How embarrassing.
Yes, its ok to joke about that. But if someone says to assassinate Obama or Hillary, then they're alt-right.
