    quasi-parody? If so send it to the poop deck. If not, the thread question is a valid question. What does it mean to be human?

    To be made in God's image of being a creative creature.

Or if they kill it's often driven by hate rather than directive. I couldn't imagine a much better scenario if lions were to suddenly acquire a human intellect. Goodness, they'd round up all living and eat them 53 days flat. End of story.
    Note highlighted above: The reality of genetic studies of the diverse variety of human variations is that different human tribes and clans made more love with each other than war. We are a product of hybridization of many varieties including Neanderthal.

    Human beings in prime shape are pretty dangerous physically. They can outrun a horse over the long run, even though a horse will leave them behind in the short run. A friend of mine killed a Kodiak Brown Bear with a knife and walked away, he still survives. Men have been attacked by big cats and killed them.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    Not obvious at all.
    Then why put this thread here where it would belong in the "Padded Room"

    Anthropology 201 is not the place for a parody thread
