Today it just hit me that people somethimes act worse than anymail. I was watching the news and saw the latest killing spree in Izrael. After that they showed the Arabs celebrating the death of the Jews. This discussion is not about the whole Izrael- Arab thing its about how people can act that way. How can people be happy when other people die?

This is a really easy question for me to answer. We are 100 times worse than animals! Animals don't cheat eachother, they don't care about money and power. They take only what they need (with VERY few exceptions) and I think they have a better sense of right an wrong. You wouldn't believe how many stories I've heard that prove my case. I heard a story once of a female Grizzly bear that let a child live out of respect of his mother (who wasn't around, the child was alone). But she understood he was someone else's "young," and left him alone. What about the 2 moose that lay next to a freezing hunter who was lost in the forest. It was snowing, and very cold. But with the 2 large animals laying on either side of the hunter, and compleltly incircling him, he lived throughout the night until he was found.

I find these stories to be incredible. I had not heard about them before, but I believe you are right. Animals do have more sense than some people do.

Daeck I promise those stories are true! I have a TON more amazing animal stories I could share, you wouldn't believe! lol. Yeah I really am starting to despise man kind. Of course I know there are some good people in the world; and of course I love my family and friends. But we are just heading south! If I had a choice I would move to an island inhabitated ONLY by animals!

I know that majority of the people on this planet deserve to call them selfs human but I am starting to think that some dont. We take pleasure in someones pain that is shocking the way things are going we a going to have a major disaster one day. Everyone hates someone and if we all act like that God save us all.

We are worse than animals mainly because we can think When we can think, selfish thoughts rise . men are selfish and they are always self-centered. Most of the time they do things for the benefit of themself and that's why they dont really care for others except their love ones
