    Human beings are mammals, specifically we are primates and even more specifically we are great apes ( humans, chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans all constitute the great ape family). Why do we think that we are so above the rest of the animal kingdom? Our intelligence and self-awareness is the result of natural selection, it's not like we earned these traits through hard work. In fact, elephants, non-human apes, dolphins and apparently even rats have demonstrated self-awareness and deep emotions have been found within them and within other non-human animals. Elephants can create abstract art, rats can laugh, dolphins have been known to protect human swimmers from sharks, ants will regurgitate food for other ants etc . The idea that we are inherently superior to other animals, including our closest living relatives (the other great apes), is specieism.

    Natural selection is the basis of evolution. The gene pool of all species undergoes regular mutation, natural selection deletes the negative mutations (which are the majority of the mutations) and favours the positive mutations to ensure reproductive success. We evolved intelligence (which is relative) and self-awareness because it helped us to survive as a species. That's my crude understanding of evolution, someone expand or correct me if I'm wrong.

    If you are indeed a Continental African, what's the difference between you and those outside of Africa? The difference is that those outside of Africa are aware that they were robbed of everything and as such we do intensive research to the maximum if we are conscious. Those on the continent tend to have the feeling or thought that they didn't really lose anything because they are still on their land...or maybe because they still retain many cultural practices such as their dress or their diet or their language...but you did lose something.

    This fact is even worse than ours is because Africa was colonized and with the colonization came the control of your education, your economics, your land and in many cases your religion. Why mention this?.. because it was on my mind...and I couldn't help but see it exhibited in your thought processes which has been an extension of THE COLONIZERS MIS-EDUCATION. ..not only on this post but others as well.

    Now, what white manual or teacher was it that told you that you was an animal and that you were an extension of a monkey or great ape? Whenever I see a monkey I see a white man. Go ahead, shave one of them down...they have white skin, thin lips and a flat @ss...sounds like a white man to me, what does it sound like to you!?

    You know,I don't understand some of these responses.Not just on this discussion either.I want to learn and be taught.But, I could of swore the title the page is.."We Are About Loving, Encouraging, Embracing, Teaching and Building With Our People. No Hate Allowed." Some of the things are said on these discussion forum are not within these guide lines.I'm starting to feel like I made a real mistake by giving energy into this site.
    I don't family........talk to me.

    learning about what THIS is really about is very difficult

    yes there is no hate allowed per se

    but the doesn't "DISCLUDE" hearing the raw truth

    we been programmed so well it's hard for you to even understand how deep this

    goes. Many years ago i had to TELL MYSELF "FORGET EVERYTHING YOU'VE

    EVER BEEN TAUGHT"


    and with that i was able to open my mind and understand who am i, and

    where i'm at, which is most important because most people don't even take

    time out to understand where they are.

    you've been lied to ALL your life

    now the truths are being exposed

    it's up to you to dig deep and find those truths or decipher those truths

    that are right in front of you

    you know they say the hardest thing to find is the thing right in front of your

    eyes

    peace 247

    patience my brethren

    if you REALLY want to know the truth

    open your mind and give yourself the ability to see the message DESPITE

    how that message it being delivered

    a very difficult thing to do

    but it can be done

    i'm there already

    AND I'M STILL LEARNING

    when the poster says man is an animal

    man's problem?

    thinking it's him and them

    when in really ALL of the life you see around you is really intertwined

    have you even heard the fall of the bumble bee? and how that could affect life on earth

    to some degree?

    yes man has some features and characteristics that give us certain

    advantages

    but EVERY living being has certain advantages to help it with its' survival

    and in closing

    the problem i see is that man himself thinks his somehow he is not part of

    the animal (life) kingdom of EARTH

    and that's where you fall off

    because man needs to respect his environment more than he does

    nobody well give a hoot until little white babies start dying

    watch what i tell you

    and get some popcorn

    because it will get real entertaining


    peace


    if you think this is so far fetched about man being animal like

    picture this:

    a hungry pack of wild
    hyenas



    and a wild pack of hungry humans

    and what do get

    how many similarities will there be

    and talking in the rawest of terms here

    no just because Starbucks closed down

    i'm talking real hardcore crisis

    and i've think you could imagine what will happen
