Written language is what separates us the most. All animals have "language". Some species of animal demonstrate abstract thought to.
It means we can learn more quickly as others have done the research work themselves. Without written language and the recording of knowledge we would still be rubbing sticks together to make fire and throwing rocks at each other.

We (humans) are the key to existence on Earth and were put here for a reason....
What reason were you put here?
Man was created in God's image and the rest of the "inhabitants" of Earth where put here for us to survive....

I learned how to grow up, and have a civil debate. You and i grown up in two very different worlds, your meaning in life, is church on Sundays, a nice barbeque, a Ford F150, work monday - friday, 2 weeks vacation and, what 5-10 sickdays?
Well its a better than the Bread and beer they had for ancient egyptian labour, they just counted the calories instead.
If i wanted a religious debate id ask for religious debate, but when there is no difference between you and a Jihadist or a ISIS supporter, there is no point in having one. You all learned the same ideals, you just grew up in two different worlds. I could explain how it works, but you have to understand religion not just follow it.
