    We are animals in the sense of the word, in terms that we share characteristics with them, but we have gone past animals in some respects to an extent that we are no longer the same.

    Yes. I also do not believe in any form of anthropocentrism.

    Yes, we are on the same level. Thanks to evolution we just have bigger brains compared to our size.

    Wether we're above or below the other animals, we're still part of them, and always will be unless we suddenly become manifestations of energy or metal.

    aww, why not pure yes/no?

    there is something that seperates us. But we're clearly animals.

    Yes of course we are animals... but we are far in advance of every other animal though.

    Except the Colossal Squid.

    Sentience is just having th ability to percieve or feel sensory input. Animals are sentient, humans are sentient. We are just smarter than animals.

    Humans, I think, have the potential to be greater than other animals, but most people live on a purely instinctual basis, so, in other words, we could be seperate but choose not to be. :p

    Humans are separate only in that they have a conscience.
