We are the most consciously intelligent. Creatures like dolphins and even gorillas are far more wise tha we are, and you notice that these creatures will not find a need to kill or capture each other as humans do. They aren't dominant, because they choose not to be dominant. We are just like other animals, such as dogs, cats and chimpanzees, because we are smart in the 'book smarts' sense, but we crave dominance, and while other animals such as said dolphins have some of the same priorities that we do, they know what's important, and they live in a far happier state than we do. We are the most powerful of the 'book smarts' animals, so we took over, with our guns and bombs, and for their own reasons, the dolphins did not mind.

Long story short, the animals that could, won't , and the animals that will, can't. We are the only ones who will and can.

From a friend of mine: "whether the opinion is based on science, alechelmy, or religion, the fact remains the same, Animals could be more dominate than Humans, they choose not to, which allows humans to have domination over the planet"

We're demonstrating our rank as dominant species by exterminating all other species, or breeding them for resources.

but does that mean we are dominate, or weak and scared of everything around us?

Physically seen we're weak. And in most cases I find it hard to believe, but apparently we're strong mentally seen.

Yet we appear to be stronger in that.
Shame though, the world would have been better off with, say, dolphins as the dominant species.

Hmmm, maybe. But they could've become just as corrupted by power as we have.

Yes they do. Locusts (sp?) can destroy our crops and all our plants which could make oxygen levels drop and cause the world to slowly die. just to give one example.

well, they could kill everything but the earth itself would remain. Enough explosives and other things could take care of that.

but given the chance, other animals could do the same with explosives that we can. They just didn't over evolve like us.

but are we the highest in intellegence and power? For what we have, we are. But animals can be even smarter then us and almost always are. And almost all animals are much more powerful then us, just not in the same ways.

We can destroy the whole earth, the animals can just kill an unarmed man. We understand quatumn mechanics, animals run mostly on instint with basic problem solving skills.

But we are animals so technicaly animals can destroy the planet...

We understand them, but do we need them? No. We could survive just fine without all the crap we have. We are an over evolved species.
