And wobbly too, let me see if I can kick it a time or two. How is it that you imagine that animals act? You seem to think that there is some dividing line between humans and the rest of the life on earth and yet none can be found. People act the way human animals act because they are animals and that is how humans act. How can you say that a beaver and his dam is a part of nature but man and his buildings are not?

Not everyone acts as they are taught. Genetics is an important factor too. A human raised by wolves will not act civilized but will not act as a wolf either, they will be somewhere in between.<br />

Edit - I have more intelligence than a baboon, but stupid people get upset if you judge value ba<x>sed upon intellectual capacity. From an evolutionary standpoint, value can only be judged by survivability, so we won't know until the next cataclysmic event. Certainly humans have been a successful species up til now, and we could eradicate the baboons if we chose. But personally I'm a nihilist so I don't think any life has intrinsic value.
