Life abounds in so many various forms on this planet. Organisms range from single-celled microbes that live in colonies on your skin to giant blue whales that swim the vast oceans. Many humans carry with them a sense of entitlement; a feeling of grandeur or advancement that far exceeds that of other organisms. How should intelligence be defined? Are we to say that humans are more intelligent than dolphins because we use computers and do algebra? Every living creature on the planet today is equally advanced as every other. We have all survived and prospered through billions of years of evolution. I would venture to say that humans are less intelligent than many other animals, as evidenced by our persistent destruction of our biosphere.
