Because homo sapiens have larger brains and the capacity for speech, we see ourselves as superior - and in many ways we are. We, as a species, have created all that the material world has to offer and have constantly proven, to ourselves, that there is not much that we aren’t capable of doing. However, one thing that we - as a species- with our large brains and language, have not been able to do, is see each other as equals.

  • Human Similarities Of Apes And Humans

    called upon to answer fundamental questions about human variation and its ramifications. While it is easy to get caught up in the idea of being so vastly genetically similar to our ape-like relatives, the assumptions underlying genetic data have more significance than the data itself.

  • Human Cloning: The Characteristics Of Humans?

    “There really is no need for human cloning” (Oscategui 1). Scientists and philosophers often debate the issue of human cloning and whether clones possess traits that qualify them as human or not.

  • Human Nature In Harry Potter And The Order Of Humans

    My thoughts on human nature can best be summed up by the character Sirius Black in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: “We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on, that’s who we really are.” Our ability to critically think about our behavior and make choices is what makes us human and sets us apart from our hominid ancestors.
