We are Homo sapiens, but let me first give you a brief description what we actually are.
- We are Mammals
- We do not have a particular mating season
- We have a lot in common with monkeys, both genetically and behaviorally.
- Like we sometimes say, we can behave like a beast/be animalistic
- Lots of other stuff.
Genetically speaking you are homo sapiens, but on a intellectual level we are human. We can proudly say that we are homo sapiens, but to what extent can you call yourself a human being?
The foremost reason would be that we have the ability to reason. Many make the mistake of saying that we can think, but that is wrong. Why? Every living animal, perhaps plants and insects as well, have brain activity or some sort of receptive ability, which sets a whole chain of action into motion. This what i believe to be thinking. So it is applicable to both the conscious and unconscious level of brain activity. In this statement I focus on the brain as a whole and not different parts of the brain by themselves.
Hmm.. if you were to read this description then another question arises. Does our body think or do YOU think? Some believe in a spirit, others believe in materialism. So there are two answers and those are both correct. Why? Because we humans are not able to fully understand each others reasoning, let alone every individual in the entire world! So it is safe to say that there is no correct/good or wrong/evil. Only if humans are capable of doing the above mentioned, only then can there be a truly correct/good or truly wrong/evil.
To answer the question to what extent we are human beings, I would say that we are only humans in our mind.
HAVE FUN THINKING OR IS IT REASONING?
HMM.. I DON'T KNOW! XD
