ONCE AGAIN you speak like the human being is NOT just another animal.RCSaunders wrote: ↑Mon Aug 10, 2020 12:06 pm
The 'you', referred to here, IS 'an(other) animal'.
So, are you suggesting/claiming that the human being animal is the only animal with a, so called, "human mind"?
Or, are you suggesting/claiming that the human being animal is the only animal with a, so called, "mind"?
Or, are you suggesting/claiming both or something else?
If you are suggesting/claiming something else, then what is 'that' exactly?
To you, either human beings are not animals, or, if they are animals, then they do not have "minds". So, which one is it?
All sounds very convoluted and confusing.
Why do you propose/claim that some animals have volition, intellect, and rationality but others do not? Or, are you now proposing/claiming that human beings are not animals? You do write very contradictory.
Are you 100% absolutely sure that non human being animals do not have some degree of volition, intellect, nor rationality AT ALL?
If you are, then what support, evidence, and/or proof do you have for this sureness?
Ah I see what is happening here. You can only, supposedly, speak for those who have the exact same view/belief that you have here, correct?
This is one clear and obvious way of turning one's inability to explain what they believe is true, onto "another", as though the "other" is somehow wrong, or is doing something wrong. I am pretty sure that there would already be a label for this type of behaving/thinking/fallacy, which I am yet aware of.RCSaunders wrote: ↑Mon Aug 10, 2020 12:06 pm I cannot say every organism that looks like a human being has a mind, because it is not possible for one organism to know what another organsim's consciousness is. If your consciousness is only different from the consciousness of non-human organisms in degree, I'll have to take your word for it.
