Do Humans have more in Common with Gods or Ants. I want to leave this discussion open and broad so don't want to suggest any context to which might favour an argument to one or the other. What are you view of which its more likely to be and reasoning behind it?

Man is both ant and god simultaneously.

It depends on your perspective.

If you look from a broad enough point of view, everything becomes irrelevant.

We're conscious beings so consciousness is more like God. Ants just go from instinct (unless they can be trained and can solve complex problems).

Does an Ant have a predilection for irrelevancy?

Both ends of a spectrum always end up being the same. So yes!

Well, if I take into account what I see with my own eyes, I'd say the Fallacy ( 'god' for those of you who don't want to look up 'fallacy' ): savagery, brutality, bigotry and hypocrisy - just to name a few commonalities.

If humans were more like ants, we would already be gods.

Message/Meaning/Medicine: The ant spirit is well known for its planning, hard work, and energy. If you’ve encountered the ant of feel a strong connection with this totem you should consider that all good things come with time, and effort. Work with diligence, with conviction, and work with others in order to forge your dreams and turn them into reality. Despite their tiny size these little spirits are immensely strong, great strength of will and accomplishment can come even in the smallest of packages. Ants are also amazing communicators; through their antenna, body language, scent, and pheromones, ants can communicate complex messages that direct and alert the colony in achieving its goals.

Any thoughts?

In the sight of God we are surely ants. In our own sight we are surely Gods.

Good point, and way to bring a little complexity to the issue.
