Im not arguing. We are clearly the most intelligent animal around. Many animals are the best at something or other. So what? You obviously have a big forebrain compared to most animals giving you the ability to make greater abstractions. None of that means you have an immortal soul. Quite the opposite in fact...its that lump of tissue in your skull, not any invisible magical soul, that makes you special.

The problem is that this lump of tissue knows it has an expiry date and its afraid of that, so it invents all kinds of baloney to avoid facing reality.

So that’s you problem? Thanks for telling us

Ehm no. Science: the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.

First class ignorance. Now do you know the exact time of your end? No! But that time must surely, this is not chance or coincident but, God.
Assuming there is a God, and assuming that his realm is not limited to just Earth, but the entire universe. Now take into consideration the size of the universe. Are you inferring that God is responsible for the management of every single human's life here on Earth, every single interaction, and the planning of every single life and death, as well as any other potential being in the universe? This must keep him pretty busy. What about the guy in Texas who was struck by lightning twice yesterday. Was this part of God’s agenda?

Hmm.. In responding to Charles you're playing a little fast and loose with the term "we". He's toying with the idea that travelling faster than the Earth rotates is time travel. I'm waiting for him to bring up the scientific theory of "my left is your right".

I read that the first entity to get the electric chair for murder was an elephant named Topsy for killing her handlers/mistreaters. Their “training” of her involved stubbing cigarettes out on her tongue.
Doesn't appear to be the first but a true story:

In answer to the questions of our dominance that were posed on this forum recently, I think we may very well be, but only at the leisure of the microbial world and once in a while, they have to remind us who is boss.

Interesting you bring this up. I just watched "Blackfish" the other night.(Well, most of it before I nodded off). It addresses this exact point. In particular, Tilikum, the Orca who killed Dawn Brancheau at Sea World in Orlando a few years ago. He is also a suspect in two other deaths.
I imagine handcuffs could be a problem but luckily he's already incarcerated.
