Some things are obvious

They who say man is no different from an animal would do well to consider that there are no death notices,  no funerals, and of course the most important, no genealogies in State buildings for ground hogs.

Image result for two plus two

The life of man is and was documented from the beginning, by NAME,  putting him in quite a different place than the animal.

The graveyards of humanity cry out for a day of reckoning.

The very fact that a man is moved by the death of another across the world, that he has never seen nor met, is proof that the spirit of man makes him distinct from the vulture.

Oh that men would taste and see that the Lord, He is God, and He is good.

There is a built-in reason a man will keep on driving after running over a squirrel, while the same man will stop to aid a man he just struck; then again, if he keeps on driving as if he did nothing wrong, maybe he is an animal….

On occasion, vultures display better manners by not picking apart every bone.

A good funeral director will consider the body of the deceased, while the road kill whitetail deer lays to rot, with no visit from its mother. It is the nature of man to show care for the dead.

The cries of man over their dead do not go unnoticed by He who keeps track of the tears in a bottle.

While animals are very adaptive, I never saw a duck operate a ball peen hammer.

A dog may be the cats meow by being your perfect lap blanket, but I heard they are not too good with needlepoint.

Didja read about the new coyote born in Montana, whose father just killed a house full of chickens? Yea, the attorney is pleading temporary insanity, but the word on the street, is an impartial jury will be hard to seat.  (kind of stupid, but the point is made)

God made man to have dominion over the animal. It’s kind of obvious, and yet, an F-15 does not come close to the grandeur of an eagle in flight.

  1. Elephants morn. Prairie dogs know their families. Dogs form packs. Just because a human doesn’t understand animals ‘filing’ methods, doesn’t mean they don’t exist.
    We are all animals, obviously!

      Plant girl-

      Don’t forget the mother bear protecting her cubs; or the faithful mallards; indeed the lessons of nature abound, but the obviousness of man having dominion……….

      and the spirit of man……….

      and the proof through death………..and records………

  5. Some things are obvious, indeed. I suppose we could all just be meaningless bits of biological goo communicating with each other across the internet, just hairless apes sitting behind a keyboard pounding away on this invisible wi/fi connection. One could also make the argument that there are none so foolish as man, yet another thing that often separates us from animals.

    One of my favorite arguments for the existence of God came from a disabled woman with a very low IQ, but such simple words of wisdom. She said, “if you are real, than God is real, duh.” Duh, indeed. There are so many great philosophers and learned men who have argued the same thing much more elaborately, but anyway you slice it, we can still disprove our own existence long before we can ever disprove God’s.

    So, just a bunch of hairless apes pounding away on our keyboards, trying so hard to prove our own non existence. That’s a bit funny. No self respecting hog would ever think to try to do such a thing 😉

      ‘None so foolish as man…………..’ proving the two toed sloth may have the drop on us. Great one there insanitybytes22 .

      And your ‘self respecting hog?’ That was more than a byte………..that’s the whole hard drive…………glad you sent it my way 😉

      But it really is a funny, strange, and sad tale that people see no meaningful difference, and that a dead crow and a dead man are ultimately equal.

He is the only animal, insofar as we know, who can see images in clouds and star-groupings, and worships an invisible god. He has decided that humans are more important than any other animals, without asking the other animals what they think about it.

    A dog understands more words of English, than a man understands words of Dog – what does that say about Man?

      You mean the same way the parrot, by repetition, understands what he says when muttering: ‘The Sox won the pennant,…………’ ‘The Sox won the pennant……. brrrrrack.’

      Now ask your bird what color it is: ‘the Sox won the pennant, brrrrack.’ Case closed.

      And your squirrel remark………….. really?proving once more you see no difference between man or beast. The image of God as seen through man escapes you.

      Many others understood this post, its sad you did not.

      (Btw, insanitybytes22 is running a post and a vid re. the fingerprint of God, ‘synchronicity.’ You may find it inspiring.)

    On a related note, have you seen the recent trend to extend rights to animals? I guess that is what happens when people lose sight of the reason why we have rights in the first place.

      @ rafols

      I’m all about their ‘rights.’ The whale has the right to swim the four corners of the earth if he wishes; the beaver has the right to build his dam wherever he pleases; the eagle can dine wherever and whatever; mama bear has the right to slay any intruder of her cubs;

      so yep, they do have rights, eh.
