and I saw one of the usual Christians against Dawkins say something in the comments section. It said something like “Sadly, Dawkins lowers us to the level of any other animal. However, God raises us much higher…” and then went on to quote something from Matthew in the Bible that I don’t recall. So that’s the problem with the world today! People think humans are on some sort of pedestal, and are more important or special to any other animal. Well let me tell these people: nature does not by any means value humans other any other species. In fact nature does not even value life, it’s just a chance event that life sprang up on this planet. And like any other species, humans have strengths and weaknesses. We may be intelligent (arguably for some people), but physically we’re weak: we can’t run very fast, we have no substantial method of defending ourselves, and we’re very fragile. In fact the only thing we really can boast about is our brains. So people like that should really shut the fuck up.
Tl;dr: Humans are not special.
