Have we been blinkered by our own cultural prejudices, casting animals in the kinds of roles we saw in the society around us?
Yes, because we are humans and humans are convinced that they are better than animals. We are ALL animals - just different.

The words "bear" and "animal" and "male" and "female" represent the sound of YOUR VOICE, not the objects above. Just like the word "human" represents the sound of YOUR VOICE, not what's reading this post. Words can't read other words and the sounf of your voice can't read anything!

Well, we need to keep strong regulations and try to curb companies like nestle from bottling and selling water. Companies are the one's using up most of the water. Also, we need to make sure something like, Flint never happens again.

Maybe if we focused on population control we could curb this.
Go look at Africa's reproduction rate compared to world.
Look at the natural LACK of resources that continent has.

A sad fact for those who didnt know. According to some Chinese and Vietnamese, the horn of a rhino can cure all and every disease known to mankind (of course sciencetifically unproven). Therefore, the riches and government officials give themselves the rights and power to hunt every last one of them down for their own benefits. And now they are going for the African rhinos as well for a large amount of money paid to poachers.

Was snorkeling in Sri Lanka and suddenly I saw an enormous green turtle. At first I thought some big sea monster is coming for me, but then I realized it was Rosie (the locals call her by that name), and we were just feeding her before we went snorkeling. Apparently, she comes to that spot every year and she's quite famous there. It was such a majestic experience to swim with a real wildlife turtle, especially because there aren't many left in the wild. They said she was around 100 years old. 😊

Swimming with sea turtles in Akumal, Mexico was one of the best experiences of my life! I don't agree with swimming with animals not in their natural environment and seeing these turtles in their natural habitat was so special! Can't wait to go back one day 😍

I was swimming off O'ahu when a turtle popped up right next to me! I backed off to give it space--you're supposed to stay at least several feet away and try not to bother them--but it was an incredible experience. I got to see it above water when it popped up next to me, then underwater after I'd backed away. I saw 9 turtles that trip (many sunning themselves on the beach), but that was my favorite encounter

Why do robots have to teach us what it means to be human? Do we have nothing realistically to compare our species to that we need a device we created for our benefit and use to show us what we became?

No inanimate object can teach humans how or what it means to be human cz realistically, you cannot teach what you don't experience for yourself.
Humans are complex emotional and rational beings. How can a robot ever understand that?

AI cant think for itself and shouldn't.
I persoanlly think to try to give a robot the ability to independently think and feel is irresponsible and cruel.

Everything turns in circles and spirals with the cosmic heart until infinity. Everything has a vibration that spirals inward or outward — and everything turns together in the same direction at the same time. This vibration keeps going: it becomes born and expands or closes and destructs — only to repeat the cycle again in opposite current. Like a lotus, it opens or closes, dies and is born again. Such is also the story of the sun and moon, of me and you. Nothing truly dies. All energy simply transforms.

05/23/2017 at 12:52
Considering this happened ib 1938, l consider this post to be misleading to say the least. Maybe preface your headline with, 80 years ago.... This is one example of, you can't trust anything you read, especially on Facebook feeds. Unfortunately this doesn't just apply to politics, or current events, but history and science as well. It's no wonder we are so ill informed. Perhaps if you can't be accurate with the information you are handling, you should just leave it be. Just a thought.

Some things we just don't need to know and it's none of our business, only God has all the answers and it's his business his alone, everytime man try to figure something they don't understand they mess up real bad to the point that it can't be fixed, so don't worry about it leave well enough alone.

After the study, Use minimum security inmates to clean it. Utilize the labor, let them contribute to society, and give them reduced time as a result. Recycle what we can into biodegradable materials and in the future perhaps fine the governments of the countries that can be identified by the waste, thereby funding future clean ups.

My 5 year old is a huge fan of David Attenborough. He really is her idol. She asked me to walk along our local beaches and pick up rubbishes this weekend. Because she wants to save animals and she strongly believes that humans should make this planet a safer and nicer place to live for everyone, every animals and creatures. Her ideal for a movie for our Friday night movie date is BBC documentaries. Thank you BBC and David Attenborough and crew for inspiring my child with your amazing documentaries.
