Full Definition of SUPERIOR

2
: of higher rank, quality, or importance
4
a : greater in quantity or numbers <escaped by superior speed>

b : excellent of its kind : better <her superior memory>

7
: more comprehensive <a genus is superior to a species>



There, I removed the non-pertinent definitions that did not apply to this discussion. I will start with the assumption that since humans can go into outerspace, build super-computers that cost a few hundred bucks, treat others with love and compassion, and show more kindness than any other species, that we are superior.

Now prove me wrong please

and it's not because a chick can peck/scratch at a few hours old I hope.

we are only superior because we are boastful to be blunt basically and we were told by god to look after his creation I cannot deny that we are not more superior but I think that someone's idea of superior can mean that they think they can treat the other animals without respect. Take racism for example it was the same with that people thought that they were more superior than others because of looks and then they were proven wrong. if chickens are less important than us then why are they the first to use our products when animal testing. I know that god told us to name the animals suggesting we were more superior but he didn't say don't respect animals. noah took the animas two by two on gods orders suggesting that they were important.

Of course, I am not arguing the following....you're creating arguments that nobody is debating.

1) I never said animals aren't important

2) I never said I thought I was better because of how I look

3) I never said that because we are superior that we shouldn't respect animals
