What makes you a human?
Not a bullshit question. So many people seem to be uneducated or just plain ignorant that it makes me wonder

what is the cut off point? Do we understand others until they not only shit on us but flush the toilet?

6. I agree completely
Never looked into Darwinism or Neo-Darwinism, dunno why the hell there is just one missing link or what not... but I do believe in Evolution... also don't see why it can't coexist with Religion.

8. The rare moment when I feel empathy
I usually think everyone sucks, and as a race, we should be eliminated. Other times I actually feel empathy and think that some deserve to live. I guess that's what makes me "human".

9. You are human when you think everyone sucks
you are divine when you think they deserve to live. The problem is deserve it or not--they are alive (for a limited time).
