Human supremacy by The-BaneBlade Human supremacy by The-BaneBlade
I may be the biggest SCI-FI nerd you may encounter here.

After watching shitloads of SCI-FI movies, playing shitloads of SCI-FI games (including StarCraft), reading sci-fi stuff, after reading how well our ACTUAL technology is advancing , I am not afraid to say that ....

WE ARE THE STRONGEST OF THE WHOLE UNIVERSE. NO DOUBTS POSSIBLE. I am a proud anthropocentric, and being born as a human is the biggest present I could ever have.

Sorry furries, wolfaboos, bronies... But, I love humanity, and I do NOT WANT to be a cat.


What I overly love about us :

-Despite our weak physical abilities, our remarkable intelligence allow us to overcome these weaknesses through technology.

-Feelings. Humanity is one of the rare race that can actually have FEELING and think about the CONSEQUENCES of an action.

-We're the only ones knowing what death is and that we're all going to die.

-We know what teamwork stands for.

-We always evolve, progress and our technology keeps getting better and better not with everyone though COUGH COUGH COUGH

-We're probably the only specie that left their natal planet to go to space.

-Our fighting doctrines are just the best ... I mean, seriously, compare a war happening between a tiger and a zebra, with OUR wars. We are organized, strategic, methodical. Regiments, divisions, tanks, generals ...

-That's just me, but I really like fuel-based machines :shrug:

... Do I need to say more ?




HOORAH FOR OURSELVES !

Now that I am older wiser and more mature, I am going to make another serious non-biased attempt at this. :D (Get ready for a wall of text)

Here goes:

We are the strongest of the whole universe

There is honestly no way to know this for sure. We may be or we may not be. You state this as a fact but what if there is something more powerful? The size of the universe is huge. The fact that we exist and are as powerful as we are proves that there could just as well be another more powerful species out there. The cosmos are too big to dismiss this possibility. So in a way, until we find out I think that point is moot and biased. I will not deny that on this world, we are very powerful and have constructed weapons of immense destruction and precision. But on a universal scale we are truly pathetic. A powerful solar flare can easily fry us while we are still here. However, I cannot speak for what the future will bring, only the present and past.

Now onto your bullet points:


-Despite our weak physical abilities, our remarkable intelligence allow us to overcome these weaknesses through technology.

This is true, we are crafty and creative. Through science and technology we have managed to unlock some very fascinating facts about life. I doubt any animal on this world knows what a Higgsboson is. ;) (But then again, not every human does either.) Don't forget that despite our technological advancements, there are still societies out there that are stuck in the stone age. They do pretty fine. Which again shows human survivability. Our main problem is that we are a very divided species. I blame that on our immaturity as 200,000 years is young for a species. Homo erectus (don't laugh) has survived for far longer than us and they did just fine without technology. On the species age scale, humanity is that creepy genius kid who is very intelligent and creative while the cockroach is this really old guy because cockroaches have been around for ages. XD I think despite our achievements, nature cares only for survival. Insects have been around before dinosaurs and will continue to be around. Our attempts to exterminate them aren't always doing great.

-Feelings. Humanity is one of the rare race that can actually have FEELING and think about the CONSEQUENCES of an action.

It is hard to say how other animals feel. But social animals must certainly have some sort of ability to bond. Cats are solitary while dogs are pack animals and you will notice how much more loyal dogs are right? You know this yourself and I don't need to dwell much. Remember that dog that kept waiting for his owner to return? There was a story where a dog lay at his owner's grave until he died too. I know you said the "rare race" so dogs can fall into this too. ;) I think our closer cousins, the Great Apes show feelings in their own ways. They are highly social and Chimps show a variety of facial expressions and the fact that they have facial differences like humans shows how close they are to us. So it won't surprise me if their feelings aren't too different from ours. I saw this little chimp say "sorry" after throwing a plastic box at this huge chimp who got pissed off (lol) and it was cute to see him literally hug and pat the little chimp on the back while doing a big grin. It was so humanlike. :D But it's true and like my father said when it comes to animals - "you will never know what really goes in their mind" and truth be said, same can be said for humans. Despite our similarities, nobody thinks the same. Look at our own differences between us. :D

-We're the only ones knowing what death is and that we're all going to die.

This may or may not be true. We will never know how animals think. Remember when we talked about Dolphins and their languages? Dolphins are very intelligent and they no doubt witnessed death and it won't surprise me if they have a word for it now. If they do, it could be a very simple understanding of it. Humans know the process of it and how to try to revive people quickly if it's not too severe or late. That is a great achievement for humanity. If your bullet point means that as kids we already know about death then that is true whole most animals know that "something" should be coming once they are too ill. Elephants seek out graveyards and most animals go seek out a quiet place to die. We won't know for sure if they know what to expect or they just want to be left alone? Can't speak for dolphins though as I explained in this paragraph. :D

-We know what teamwork stands for.

All pack and social animals know what teamwork stands for. I have watched some amazing co-operations from animals and humans alike when it comes to teamwork. Humans and dogs would be the few interspecies teamworks in this world that I know of. Like a symbiotic relationship where both gain from eachother instead of a parasitic one where one feeds of the other.

-We always evolve, progress and our technology keeps getting better and better not with everyone though COUGH COUGH COUGH

Everything always evolves and progresses. The Earth has 4 billion years of history worth of evolution and progress and it's no stopping there.

-We're probably the only specie that left their natal planet to go to space.

It's good that you said "probably" and right now that's not the case because thanks to us, chimps, dogs, tardigrades have all visited space. :D

-Our fighting doctrines are just the best ... I mean, seriously, compare a war happening between a tiger and a zebra, with OUR wars. We are organized, strategic, methodical. Regiments, divisions, tanks, generals ...

You have to define philosophically what you mean by "the best" because other animals are just as good as they need to be in their natural environments. All pack hunters co-ordinate their hunts really well. "We are organized, strategic, methodical," so are the lions, the wolves, the dholes, the hyenas, frickin' ants and termites who wage their own wars on one another... I'm not kidding lol. You can't say we are "the best" because that's an opinion. Yes, we can easily destroy a pack of any of these things with out armies, no denying that but it doesn't make us "the best" because seriously, what would that achieve? It won't benefit us naturally in anyway and would just be a pointless destruction. Like we haven't done enough anyway.

-That's just me, but I really like fuel-based machines.

While these machines are really useful, they are screwing us up so badly in the long run. Our pollution is turning against us and this could affect our survival. There are some really polluted areas in China where people have to wear masks when going out. I hear that there are future plans to actually minimalize fuel based machines. In Arabia they are working on a "carbon free" city which will be called Masdar. It will be COMPLETELY car free and travel will be done through electric trains or other transports. Solar power and alternatives are gonna be our future because fuel based cars cause too much damage. Let's be reasonable here, Earth is really our only home and space travel is in it's infancy... no, it's in the fetus stage still. So we better be careful.

Good point, but what you've quoted here comes from natural disasters. The sun is not a living thing now is it ? :D . We can't control mother nature fully yet, but I wouldn't be surpised if we could someday.

I agree I went a bit far by saying "the strongest of the galaxy", ... But imagine if that was true ? The Universe being nearly infinite (In fact I'm sure it is probably not.) , I can be as right as wrong. Future will eventually tell.

I agree 100%, we are way too much of a divided specie. If we could work together as a single nation (TERRAN UNION, IMPERIAL GUARD AHUEHUEHUE AND HELL, Even the guards are sometimes in disagreement with the Space Marines, causing wars ... XD), we'd build a better future for our species.

However, about death, I'm 100% sure about this fact as I studied it in science, and I remember reading and watching a lot of documentaries about this, this is among the things that make humanity an unique civilization. We're aware of ourselves, animals aren't (however, there's indeed exceptions. For example, there was this little experiment back then made by an American scientist if I recall correctly, he noticed that by putting a huge mirror in front of an elephant, the beast recognized itself and tried to walk away from it. :D). We have a CONSCIENCE.

About Team Work, animals may work together, but they can't really build any "strategy". Man, come on, have you already seen tigers going like "TAKE COVER ..." "ATTACK THIS FLANK !" ... "STEP BACK, STEP BACK COMRADES ! " "FIRE IN THE HOLE " ...
They follow their instinct and work with their fellows not because they need to, but because it's NATURAL for them to do so. They do not really have any intelligible objectives ... Here again, by fighting against ourselves, we just show how much we do not respect any natural laws : Because, is it natural for a human to kill his fellows ? It is not.
That may wrong, or right, but that shows an objective aspect of our intelligence. Being intelligent doesn't necessarily make you a good person according to our ethics (LOL BLISS.)

We remain the most organized. XD

AAh... Now, onto fighting doctrines. That will be plagiarism from Warhammer, but allow me to say, provided that it's true even in the real world , that past centuries have shown that humans are amazing at something : WARS.

That's what make us, again, better. We do not evolve because (or thanks to) of the environment, we MAKE the Environment evolve. We build our own world, build our own strategies, our own ethics, our own laws ... We deny the "given natural", as I may call it. And we are the best at it. Let's take a look at the proper definition of war :
A state of competition or hostility between different people or groups: . War is basically the complete destruction of the opposition, and, through destruction, fighting is something we're the best at, at least on our planet. That's a fact.
Maybe I worded it wrong, but what I meant is that WE'RE THE BEST AT WARS, not THE BEST BECAUSE WE WIN WARS. See the difference ?
Indeed, being amazing as destructing things doesn't make us an amazing species, but that doesn't make us less good at it.


And about pollution... One answer : Let's find other planets to colonize ! :lol:

I also forgot to say, what if we are a natural disaster? :--DDD

We can do just as much damage as an earthquake or tsunami if not more and it lasts longer too. :--DDDD

Also, I forgot : About my previous comment :

The Imperial Guard also developed their own version of the Ion Cannon starcraft.wikia.com/wiki/Ion_C… ... Because of how powerful the weapon is, they baptized it the "TITAN OF THE EMPEROR". : strategywiki.org/wiki/Warhamme…


Needless to say ... This thing is just ENORMOUS and has weapons that would decimate an entire planet : wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Emper… ...

You know the necron monolith ? warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Mo… ... As a matter of fact, the weapon of the Titan literally ONE SHOT it. :lol:

I love Titans. :D

I love how they don't know it needs human operators and still think it's the machine spirit. XD

In Warhammer 40k robots and AI is banned. So they no doubt use primitive computer systems again LOL! And the robots need permanent human drivers I think.

I myself forgot to tell :


Whereas each alien is nothing more but an insect, a killing machine ... Each human is an unique individual, with his own feelings, goals ... Human's life is way more valuable than any other species's
