Quote from: Longfellow on June 14, 2009, 10:07:45 pmMeh. As long as you're not like "GOD IS FOR IDIOTS, LOLHA," I don't take much offense. Honestly, there are many things about God that I know can't be understood, or interpreted logically. You can just accept them, doublethink-style. Like omnipresence and omniscience. And you can't ever definitely say anything about him other than what you take to be true from the foundations of your respective religion (ie what your main religious text, accepted truths, etc state, such as facts layed out by the Bible/Quran/Dianetics). For now, I'm getting tired (I only stay awake for ~12-14 hours a day, unlike most people who can stay up to midnight and beyond and still be up as early as me, which I don't understand), so yeah... 'nuff writing and having people take me seriously. On topic: I think that what makes humans _really_ unique is that we've found an entirely new method of evolution, beyond just natural selection -- intellectual evolution, our ability to "reprogram" ourselves at will to adapt. We can evolve within a single generation, and then pass it on, exponentially increasing our rate of "evolution" and leading to technology, philosophy, and so on. *Longfellow goes to sleep, and hopes his name is changed now *

(IE, what's the next "big difference?" Another finger?)For the record, I would like to point out that there is a term for having six fingers: polyploidy, and the gene for it is actually DOMINATE over the five fingered gene.
