    But I agree with you that the ability to communicate is not unique to humans.
    Did you actually watch the video? If not, then I suggest you watch it to the end. That is not reciting by rote.

    Considering we can blow the planet and all it's abundant life to nothingness, I beg to differ, lol. Nature ain't got nothing on man insofar as destructive power goes.



    Very true.
    I agree that humans are very destructive, but the earth can recover from nearly anything. As far as destructive power goes, volcanoes and other major natural catastrophes are still light years beyond our control.

    The fact is you are wrong. Some animals do possess abstract reasoning ability, communication, and morality. Simply because you are a theologian, you have chosen to ignore the evidence that threatens your precious world view that humans are somehow the only creatures that posses these things.

    What are you trying to say here? Libs can down em as well as anyone else!
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Interesting. You are moving the goal posts just like Blackdog tried to do. First you argue that they don't possess the ability at all, then you argue that they don't possess the abiltiy to the level that humans possess it. The fact is that African Grey Parrots have been scientfically proven to have the communication ability of a human toddler. That means they do possess human level language. Admittedly they don't possess the communicational abilities of an adult human, but they can possess the the communicational abilities of humans.

    My mistake, I hadn't watched the whole thing.
