Just to prove that we are in the animal 'kingdom.'

Sex is what perpetuates our species.

Actually, I'm not sure if science classifies us as animals. Anybody know that for sure?


Momma Angel, the classification of Humans:

Animalia :: Kingdom :: animals
Chordata :: Phylum :: notochord containing
Vertebrata :: Subphylum :: spinal chord containing
Mammalia :: Class :: hair and breasts
Primates :: Order :: nails, grasping digits, binocular vision
Hominoidea :: Superfamily :: apes and humans
Hominidae :: Family :: genus Homo, genus Australopithecus
Homo :: Genus :: our genus
Sapiens :: Species :: our species

Kind Regards

Then we are not classified as humans? I am reading that we are not classified as animals. Is this correct?

We are classified as animals, it is a heirarchy, from Animalia to Sapien.

We are mammals.

Not all of us who do not have belief in god or gods think all those who do are stupid people. I'd essay that most of us don't, while we have different levels of disagreement about the beliefs, some of that quite heated.

I do observe that J. Creasey woke up wanting a nice fight, given the title.

Hi Osso!

Yes, you are right and you are also one of those that I would not put in John Creasy's description. You just weren't here at the time!

Well, I tend to agree on the title. He, at the very least, should have known it was going to draw some controversy.

The human body has 10-20 billion miles of DNA - enough to stretch to the moon 40,000 times.

Does there need to be a point? I don't need one. If you need one, you can go seek it all by yourself.

As jst stated, we share 70 percent of our DNA with carrots. Don't need no point in that either. They are what is called "trivia or facts" for most of us nonscientific types.

So is it ok to kill if my instinct compels me to?? If I have a strong lust for a woman, is it ok to rape her because my instinct is urging me to have her??? These are animal instincts, we all have them deep down. Why not act on them??

Because you would be killed or imprisoned, at the very least. Duh.

Why? I'm just behaving like an animal? What else do you expect?

Tell that to the judge and jury after you are arrested for the crime.
