Question of the day.

What makes us human (besides our DNA)?

My answer:

What I think of primarily is that we have souls, and that we are by nature conscientious beings and tend to have more of a sense of dignity. We also have a wider range of emotions – or at least I haven’t heard of an animal that would have as wide spectrum of what they can feel as we have – and have unique ways of communication that are quite specific to us. –

What do you think? πŸ™‚

  1. I would say our imperfections and self-focused natures make us human rather than divine beings like Jesus or angels. I mean, I think humans are divine, too, but just horribly flawed. I often wonder if we’re striving toward some sort of betterment or if that’s impossible and too much to ask. 😦 I have no clue. But it upsets me that humankind is so… riddled with flaws. Maybe it’s impossible not to be.

    1. Oh that’s a very good point too. I only looked at it as how we are different from other beings here on Earth, but it’s good to look at how we differ from God or angels. It’s indeed sad that we’re so flawed. I do think betterment is something we should strive for, however everyone probably has their own sort of limit as for how much they can better themselves and we’ll probably never be perfect or maybe only in the afterlife. But I think it’s worth striving for, as long as it’s in a healthy way and doesn’t become perfectionistic.


  2. I believe it is our conscientious thought that make us humans. We make a wider range of emotions because we think too much. Other animals have emotions and a sense of dignity but it’s less apparent because they more easily accept things as they are.
