    Yes, but give both the man and the tiger a gun (which man invented, not the tiger), and I'm guessing the man has a better chance. I think the fact that we dominate even though we're not superior in one facet, i.e., brute strength, kind of proves that we are superior over all. But it comes with responsibility. In that, we are lacking. I don't think the tiger thinks about responsibility at all.

    That's pretty hardcore. I at least would like a plain wooden box so the people burying me don't have to drive up a mountain with a dead body flopping around in the back of the car.

    A lot of people haven't. It's part of the Stoic Philosophy. A philosophy of life started by the Greeks and refined by the Romans. It's not for everyone, but I thought that tidbit might be useful to you.

    And I'm not narrow minded, I'm a loving person with a big heart. Just because we disagree does not make me narrow minded.

    Peace and love
    I think once you expanded on your beliefs you painted yourself with a more reasonable and defendable voice. But your initial statement sounded like someone purposefully trying to sound like a jerk.... in fact with such a callous viewpoint, that it almost sounded ridiculous. Kind of the way PETA would LOVE to see proponents of meat eating act and speak.

    We are all flesh to somebody or something and finally we are all eaten, by worms, microorganisms, chemical breakdowns or devoured by the fire. Also the plants tries to protect themselves against herbivores. Eat and finally be eaten yourself, that’s how the world works…
