Both to varying degrees. Look at the evidence, it's all around you in our societies.
Agreed. We tend to congregate in large numbers, and don't always fare well if totally secluded. That's the social part, which has no bearing on rationality, except that in seclusion, we can become irrational: Inventing friends, open hallucinations. Our rationality may be tied to the social aspect, as can be testified by anti-social behavior which is generally considered irrational. Just an opinion.

Social and rational animal. However, I believe man is a social animal first. We learn from others, love others and are driven to procreate and live with life partners (although I accept the latter often doesn't last) think about Durkheims theory of suicide. He concluded, that at that time the greatest factor leading to suicide was lack of social integration. Man does not do well in a solitary environment.
Both or neither. Man has a choice for the most part. It's when the choice is forced upon us when we really notice.
It is rational to be social--so I don't understand why you think we need to pick only one.

....Why you choose not to believe? And is there a way that it can be done without attacking those who DO choose to do so? I ask because I truly want to understand, not because I want to fight my way into earning a reward for saving your soul. Thanks!

NOTE: This is posted on the PHILOSOPHY forum, not the religious forum.Beliefs - I don't want to know what your beliefs are; I'm interested in why people defend their beliefs, how they get their beliefs and if any beliefs are rational?eg is 'believing' in electricity a rational belief, or is it...
