    Anyway, take it easy and try not to rationalise everything. You'll just end up doing yourself some mental injury! Take comfort in the fact that most of us feel/think the same way at some point in our lives.

    We can sit in a philosophy class and argue till the cows come home and still not come to any answer to this question: Are human beings superior beings? Of course, we need to define superior beings. Superior to who and what?

    Some of us will believe tt we are to "rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground". Therefore we are created (if we believe that we are created) to be above all these things.

    Compared with animals with no apparent spoken language but with natural abilities going beyond that of human beings without the assistance of gadgets, humans are always deemed as the 'superior beings'.

    It makes me wonder at times, how exactly superior is this superior being, is it really superior? Or is it merely a term made by our own deluded self in an attempt to raise our perceived self-worth and lower our own hidden inferiority complex?
    we r superior becos we have civilisations, we have the abilities to build. On physical means, our brain is bigger and we r equipped with more useful limbs, that makes us the more superior animal.

    We still behold the basic instinction - feed and mate, like all other animals..who knows 1 day we might go back to fundemental, run ard the street and start to bite each others...keke
