Hell horses on their first day they are born, they are running around, not that i like horses, just pointing it out.
Many cats and dogs that we have bread to be pets out of wild animals do in fact need to live with the support of human ingenuity. Some wouldn't
survive a day in the wild just because of physical limitations. Some animals are in fact born into the world with disabilities. Unfortunately they
don't survive. Horses, many deer like animals, and many other varieties of animals are born with instincts such as the ability to walk, swim, hunt,
et cetera. Humans are born with less instincts. This is believed to be because our brains are more focused on learning and being creative instead of
relying solely on instinct. Though, there are studies that show we do have the instinct to walk right after we are born, but our legs simply are not
strong enough. If you put a baby in waste high water they will show proper walking mechanics.
Those animals have perfect night vision...
There are many animals that can barely see at night. There are also many animals that can see well at night. Though, even the best night vision isn't
perfect. There are even animals that can barely see no matter what time of day it is. It all depends on whether they evolved to be nocturnal or
Humans on the other hand, need houses, humans make the enviroment adapt to them, human babies are too weak on their first day of birth, they
born naked, hungry etc, it takes humans at least 18 years to be somewhat self sufficient.
We need shelter to live, we can't live in the open, we'll die, wolves will kill us, predators will kill us, the cold will kill us, we can't hunt,
we have to kill cattle etc.
Many animals alter their environment in was that benefit them. Some in fact do build some sorts of shelter. Most, that don't, use naturally available
shelter. Though we truly don't need houses. People can, in fact, live out side, off the land, hunt, gather, defend themselves against predators, and
adapt to countless environmental difficulties. We just, through thousands and thousands of years, have realized that it is more efficient, safe, and
beneficial to our well being to live as we do. Of course if we were to abandon civilization, with all that implies, there would be a very sharp
learning curve. Most of us would have to move to more temperate climates and learn how to hunt and defend ourselves. A lot of people would die, but we
as a species would most certainly survive.
Many animals are born weak and extremely dependent. Lions, for one instance, are born weak, unable to walk, and unable to survive with out their
mothers. Lionesses have to hide and relentlessly guard their cubs for the first few months of their lives. They stay with their mothers until they
reach adult hood much like humans. Many mammals are like this.
Animals are born perfect... humans on the other hand we have variation, some are disabled, some are smart, some are dumb, does the animals in
the wild have this?
No, animals are born with millions of years of evolved genetics that offer them the best chance for survival. Many can't defend themselves, feed
themselves, or even use their natural senses at birth. Some are born with all kinds of mutations and defects that prevent them from surviving. Though,
the more social the animal the greater their chance to survive is with all different types of disabilities. Humans are a very very social animal that
has a very advanced mental capacity. So therefor, more individuals of our species not only survive but actually pass on their mutations.
Humans aren't a natural part of this ecosystem, mother nature is not our mother, but a cold hard bitch who wants us dead.
Mother nature is a cold hard bitch to everything. All animals and life for that matter is in a constant war as they fight for survival. This is how
the ecosystem works. It is not a peaceful, easy, benign system. In fact mother nature eventually takes the life of everything.
While i can recognize some far fetched possibility that we came for another world, were genetically modified, or some how just not natural to this
planet, to say we aren't well adapted to this planet or some how inferior to the other animals is completely ridiculous. We, through relatively
advanced brains and above average physical ability, have dominated all animals and adapted to the harshest environments on this planet.
I have to wonder if you think that this planet is incapable of creating intelligent life. I'm even more interested in what environment/planet do you
think we belong. Use your imagination for that one
