What is it about humans that make many believe they are superior to all other animals on the planet?


With all the questions about religion lately, it makes me question why so many humans believe themselves to be such good people when there is such a lack of humility in relation to nature and how animals are treated. Why is one animal prized and/or more greatly valued while others rejected and/or squashed under the toe of one's shoe simply because it is considered ugly, not as useful, or nuisance to a human. What makes humans so superior to that of all other animals on the planet?

    It's sad, but true. People do not use their reason wisely.

    God is a man-made concept. I cannot believe that if there were a god, man would be deemed any better than other living creatures. This is just another concept justified by man. However, there are many factors and many evil people, Christians or not.

    It's not about the circle of life, for this I understand. It's more about the devastation humans cause across the globe, endagering animals and causing extinction. The lack of understanding of symbiosis of all living species. We are not so superior.
