Should humans be considered as part of the animal kingdom?

  • Humans are part of nothing

  • We are a part of this world

    We are not above the world. We are the most self aware creatures on the planet, But we are not gods. And we should not think of ourselves as above the natural world. We are but one small species on the face of this planet and we can be wiped off the planet just as easily as any insect if we are not careful.

  • Humans are a part of the animal kingdom.

    Humans are merely just intelligent beings that broke off from the primate evolution system, Even Stephen Hawking said so. We're not BETTER than other animals and we are DEFINATLY NOT at the top of the food chain. If anything, We're closer to the bottom than the top. We Are Omnivores!

  • Yes, as living organisms humans remain as a part of the animal kingdom.

    Yes, humans should keep their classification in the animal kingdom. First, it's a basic, scientific fact we are part of a kingdom, animal at our highest level and specie, sapiens at our lowest level of classification. Second, an attempt to separate ourselves from the animal kingdom may have the unexpected consequence of allowing us to believe ourselves above the natural world, when in fact we are a part of the natural world, which we need to protect in order to prolong our own species survivability.

  • Yes, humans should be considered part of the animal kingdom.

    Yes, humans should be considered part of the animal kingdom. Though quite developed and sophisticated, humans have many basic characteristics in common with other animals. For example, humans breathe, eat, and sleep just like any other species. In addition, humans reproduce and will fight when provoked. If intelligence were not a factor, humans would be no different than any other animal.

  • Yes, humans are definitely part of the animal kingdom.

    Although it is generally accepted that humans have a higher level of consciousness and intelligence than most other species, they are still a part of the animal kingdom. It is kind of ignorant and elitist to remove humans from the animal kingdom since humans evolved alongside the animals around them and came from the same starting point.

  • Humans are part of the animal kingdom.

    Humans are part of the kindom animalia, the phylum of chordata, the class of mammals, the order of primates, the genus of homo, and the species of sapien. All of that is code for our genetic breakdown. We are animals because we are not plants, chordata because we have a spinal cord, mammals because we give birth to live young, primates because we are evolved anthropods, homo sapiens because we walk on two feet and have larger brains than our cousins the apes. Being part of the animal kingdom is simply a way of tracking human development and evolution, similar to a huge family tree of all life.

  • Humans are uniquely different.

    Humans are uniquely different from all of the animal kingdom. The human species expresses its intelligence and emotions in ways unique in the animal kingdom. We cooperate with each other on an unprecedented scale, Experience love and grief across time and space, And create works of art and science that transform the world for good and ill. We can appreciate abstract concepts, Believe in things we cannot see and have faith in God.
    Nobody can agree where humans came from - many don't even believe we evolved from other animals, And those who think we did cannot agree on the process.
    I think humans should not be categorised with animals.

  • A biblical Worldview

    So if you have a biblical worldview (such as myself) you would have to say no because God put us on this earth as humans not animals. Adam and Eve weren't apes they were just like me, You, And the person next to you. But those are just my beliefs and opinions.

  • HUMANIMALS do exists

    There are two kinds of people in this world,

    1. PEOPLE IN HUMAN BODY BUT WITH ANIMAL MENTALLITY- as the terms suggests, This people only became HUMANS because they have the body of a human but they believe they should be part of the ANIMAL KINGDOM.

    I for one do not wish to dispute this fact because these people truly exists. As of your last count, There are more than 80% percent who already admitted as being a part of this group.

    2. The HUMAN BEING that are truly HUMAN-

    these are people who lives a life in a manner expected from a human being because these people believe they are human beings who have the right understanding of life based on there true NATURE OF EXISTENCE and not based on how SCIENCE or RELIGION wishes to impose there own definitions or application of their so-called TRUTH.

    The information in the book of Genesis clearly reveal the reasons why HUMANS are HUMANS and not animals.

    QUESTION TO HUMANIMALS. . . Are you a more superior specie than your father? Because if so, Then there is without a doubt that you truly evolved from APE ancestors.

    1. Humans came not from IGNORANCE but from INNOSENSE. HUMANIMALS believe they begun as an IGNORANT SPECIE.

    2. Apes did NOT wait to evolve and become humans before these APES were even called APES.

    3. APES did not wait to evolve and become humans before he realized that they are naked.

    HUMANIMALS believe there ancestors didnt know they are naked neither did they find the need to wear any clothes. I am just wondering why HUMANIMALS do not teach their ancestors or the APES to make their own clothes and wear clothes everyday, Their undies at leasts, 🤣.

    DID THE WORLD WAIT FOR THE APES TO BECOME HUMANS BEFORE THEY WERE GIVEN THEIR NAMES?

    If dogs are mans best friend, Why are APES not dogs bests friends?

    Lions, Tigers and cats can live along together being one feline line, Why can't HUMANS and APES cannot live along together? Why can't they have sex together?

    Animals reproduce with their kind even with different hybrids why don't humans find the urge to mate with APES, GORILLAS or MONKEYS?


    After reading this, I would expect many will feel offended because of the MENTALLITY of the ANIMAL KINGDOM that would lead them to think otherwise, Therefore, I would expect this HUMANIMALS to contradict there own claims and I can't wait to see what the "ignorant and elitist" commentor would say nexts. 🤣
    Future prediction:
    From FLAT EARTH, It has evolved to become what it is today, ROUND EARTH or spherical whatsoever. A few years from now, It will turn into PLANET OF THE APES where humans will go extinct and the next in line would be the HUMANIMALS. GOD FORBIDS.

    TO SUMMARIZE:

    HUMANS HAVE LOGIC WHILE ANIMALS DON'T. IT IS QUITE OBVIOUS THAT ANIMALS DON'T EVEN KNOW THEY ARE ANIMALS WHY DOES IT MATTER TO HUMANS? BUT IT MATTERS TO HUMANIMALS.

  • Humans Are Not Animals

    Plants are sort of like animals, but are in a different kingdom level. This shouldn't be any different for humans, either. Do cosmetic brands test on humans to ensure quality? Do you go to the vet for vaccinations? Do you get locked up into a birdcage, only later to be sold in a pet store? If you answered NO to all these questions, the answer is quite obvious and simple.
