But humans are animals, so surely just by replying you have responded with animal noises...?

But is not Animal a name that human uses for other mamals ?
It would be better to say
Humans are mamals , same as animals.
With big differences.
Logic , Decision power , Society , talking ability , creativity etc etc etc and thousands other ETCs...
Animalls never think about what do they are going to do.
They change themselve , when invironment change.
But human changes invironment too.
They make changes in themselve to match a situation , Human creat and invent for that . etc etc and thousands again.
Human knows the different between bad and good . and can decide which way wants to go. but animal follows instinct . and etc

Yes...I think Gelli is the only TP animal (read TP pet)...

In lay terms, maybe, but an Aminal and Mammal are NOT the same thing. Mammals (or Mammalia) are one class which are all in the Kingdon of Animalia (with a Phylum in the middle who's name i forget, but for us is the Vertebrate one).

Thus anything in the Kingdon Animalia is an Animal (obviously). Humans are in that group, along with Monkeys, Elephants, Capybaras, Wasps, Hummingbirds and everything else.

Animalls never think about what do they are going to do.

Now that is an amazing and fascinating statement to make!!!

Human knows the different between bad and good

Do they? Always? (admittedlky knowing the difference and only doing good are too different things, but saying humans always know the difference between good and bad is overly sweeping)

but animal follows instinct

So do humans

I think Gelli is the only TP animal (read TP pet)...

So THAT's why i live in a locked cage, get fed at fixed times a day and get periodically stroked. Doh! Should have guessed

But a discussion about Taxonomy and classification, as well as instincts and differences between Man and other members of the Animalia kingdom, whilst potentailly fascinating, is entirely off topic to Elnaz original question about Iran and Propoganda, thus from here we return to the regularly scheduled programming.

I did not say ALWAYS . don't misquote me.
As long as we can use our loggic , and our faith ( for religious people ) we can know the difference between good and bad , and then decide that which do we want ..and we do.
But for animals ,, Good and bad has no meaning. They do whereever their instinct goes.

So do humans

Not always. as animals do.
As human be able to use his logic , and WANTS to use it , can control instint , but for animals , its instint which controls them

You've never seen my friend's very sneaky, kleenex-loving baset hound plot how to distract you so she can jump up and steal your napkin off the table. I fall for it every, single time. Although... maybe that says more about me...

I know what you are saying, but again, that is an oversimplification. Many animals learn things and apply logic/ show an understanding of good and bad - in at least some instances, rather than neccessarrilly everything - rather than going solely with instinct. On a smaller level, a dog or cat, for example, left alone in a room with a large plate full of meat overwhelmingly, instinctively, wants to eat it. But it knows it it is bad. It might still eat it and go with its instincts (yet know it is bad and know it will be punished later), or it might go against those instincts and be good. I accept that that is for trained dogs/cats not neccessarrily wild ones, but it still holds true in nature. Humans are, after all, just trained animals as well (which is why humans who have grown up with isolation and with wild animals, as you occassionally hear about, are more wild animal than human - They haven't been trained and is instinctive rather than logical).

Agreed with most of those just .

(yet know it is bad and know it will be punished later), or it might go against those instincts and be good.

Not for knowing good and bad....
Just by frequency happens , realized that if do that , must awaits for punishment , which hurts.

(which is why humans who have grown up with isolation and with wild animals,.

Not always..
Human can evade punishment very easily,
When a person can do something bad , and no one sees him , and he can evade the punishment for 100% , he don't do it ... why ? because of faith, and believe... believe can be trained , but faith is not so.
Loyality Or Love... you can see many bad person , who grew up in crim and have done it thousand times... but suddenly fall in love and change 180 .

There is a difference between human and animal.
