What is an animal? A living organism that feeds on organic matter.
Michael’s Argument: Are there animals that are more capable than humans ever can be? First, I would like to say that I believe that animals are not smarter than humans because there are a lot of things that animals can’t do that we can, such as doing math, talking, or even just simple things like writing. My first animal is a chimpanzee. They are very smart but are they smarter than humans? No because if you look at different aspects of the monkeys you can see that they can’t do some of the stuff we can like speak English, use sign language, drive, and build something with technology. This is important because people need to know how we can understand how animals function differently than humans can and that they can do stuff we can’t, such as speak their language, eat some of the foods they eat, and see what they see out of their eyes. Critics say the same as well.
Octavia’s Argument: I understand that there are a lot of things that chimps can’t do that humans can. Chimps lack varying things, that doesn’t make them less competent then us. I am also sure they have their own language. Humans can’t speak chimpanzee and they adapt to society and that humans take a little longer to do so. They know to speak vocally. There are other animals that can do stuff we can’t. For example, birds they can fly, but can we? And to end it I admit that we may be smarter than chimps, but there are other animals that can do things we can’t.
