Do you think human beings are just animals? Why?

We are not vegetables, or minerals, so what is left?

Your question is unanswerable because you don't explain what you mean by "just." Humans are classified as animals, but are they "just" an animal? Is a giraffe "just" an animal? Is a rotifer "just" an animal?Source(s): Biologist

Human beings are not just animals, you are animals of MY species.
That's why you are so special to me.

Yes. If our closest relations hadn't all died out, or been pushed by us maybe, you wouldn't see such a great difference between the species.

Well, we're not plants and, although some people really are detritivores, we're not fungi either......but we certainly ARE euchariotic deuterostomes - by definition.

Of course we are animals. We have the same DNA and biology as every animal on earth. We fit into the categories of primates, mammals, vertebrates, and so on. We evolved from a common ancester as all other animals.

Since the time of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden mankind has been reduced to the position of being just an animal an intelligent animal given. The most dangerous animal. But without the spirit of God living inside of us like he used to mankind is simply an animal. An animal that has the ability to rise from being simply an animal back to a divine creature that he once was.

They are, the only thing different is that we can talk and pretend we are more civilized than what we really are with the raging beast inside of us, if it were any different we wouldn't have prisons and wars. You can really see it in alpha males.

no .. our mind and the ability to understand things is something very different from animals ..
