50. I suppose all those dogs and cats and other animals who sit on command,

and do other tricks based on words we say to them are just doing the exact thing we ask them at the exact time we ask them are doing it all by mere coincidence then? Those are some pretty amazing coincidences, aren't they?

Your post is full of shit.

I had a cat that knew left from right based on what directions we gave her after she went blind. Not only that, she knew exactly what we told her on many many everyday things. She even got my aunt's medicine for her when I was away and my aunt needed that certain medicine to be able to breathe.

Animals can and do understand what we are saying to them. The biggest problem is that we don't understand what they say to us. When it comes to superiority in understanding communications outside of their own species, animals have us beat, hands down.
