Superior is a value judgment. I'd say that humans are superior to other animals though, yes. But that's not my point. My point is that humans are demonstrably different from other animals and that to pretend otherwise is silly. I never said we were not animals, you'd have to be a idiot to think that, I simply said that we are different from other animals and to talk about humans in the same way as other animals is silly.
Hell, other animals even behave and act differently. You would not talk of an amoeba, a cow, and a orangutan in the same terms.
