a clear example on animal intelligence and compassion. in this case where a canine husky dog acted in a heroic and selfless manner, and saved his life along with the lives of his animal friends. good job.

It really isn't intelligence. Random acts that cause a positive outcome are not intelligence. Jed Clampett wasn't intelligent because he randomly shot and found a "bubblin crude."

it was not a random act, you suggesting as much is irrational and absurd.

I see you also lack a basic understanding of behavior in addition to your lack of understanding of science. Behavior is repeated or performed purposely due to a past history of reinforcement. It also can be performed due to a history of observing others being reinforced. As motivation increases due to deprivation, scrolling tends to occur where critters begin to do random things to see if any of them produce a desired environmental change. The dog engaged in random behaviors. One of them happened to work. That isn't intelligence. It is desperation.

wrong again mr blockhead. you haven't made your case. the dense and drunken ad hominem strawmen are a dead give-away. you have failed to source anything you have stated on this forum, obviously you don't have any realworld critical thinking skills to speak of, or else you can't. obviously you think the dog accidently honked the horn after being locked in their for several days, this was an action performed by the dog, not a random behavior that needs to be reinforced. and nice switch from not having any intelligence to an act of desperation. therefore this act of desperation was planned out by the dog, hardly an accident as you so carelessly describe it here. what a macaroon.

Like I said, you don't understand human or animal behavior. People who do would laugh at your response.

oh my seet lord. that can't be right. wrong again as usual blockhead. you are again making a supreme fool of yourself, by attacking me with your childish, pointless drunken ad hominem strawmen, your particulary foolish, inept non sequiturs, and of course your unhumane and uncourageous speciesist doublethink.

in short you are attacking the messenger and not the message.

http://www.ukskeptics.com/article.php...

this is nothing but clear evidence that you don't even grasp the subject matter at hand here, in fact something as complicated as human and animal behavior. let alone basic and direct, easy to comprehend ideas. coupled with your idiotic hatespeech and off-topic wild-eyed notions, it is easy to see that you don't understand anything here beyond pointless childish insults and bogus, fruity, extrinsic and irrelevant banter.

I gave an accurate and succinct explanation of behavior. You cannot comprehend and instead reach for the magical thinking of explanatory fictions. That isn't an attack. It is an accurate observation. I am using science. You are using mumbo jumbo.

wrong again blockhead. you are not using science, you have already clearly demonstrated very clearly that you don't understand even the scientific method, let alone realworld research and analysis. no the fact is that you are hiding behind the terms earth science, behavior and science. and other inappropriate jargonized nonsense and pc distortions.

your warped, off-topic comments and delusional statements including your reliance upon junkscience and horribly distorted DUMBYist propaganda is no substitute for the truth. your don't comprehend the subject matter being presented here, on any level. so you just fake it with your boorish, sloppy, drunken ad hominem strawmen, a mountain of foolsgold non sequiturs and outrageous, bogus red herrings. totally irrelevant. since you can't seem to grasp the simplest of ideas and most basic of concepts.

but beyond that your careless and goofy gradeschool logic speaks for itself. maybe just maybe you should quite possibly perhaps try to brush up on your critical thinking skills.

have a nice day.

I hate to tell you but you are the one doing the magical thinking and I am the one adhering to what science has told us about situations like this. I am a scientist for a living. I know how to perform and interpret scientific data. You on the other hand do not. You don't understand sampling and generalization and do not understand motivation and behavior. You are so devoid of knowledge that you don't realize that you are devoid of knowledge. You don't know what you don't know but for some strange reason, you think you do.
