Should Animals and Humans be in the Same Grouping or Classification

The question has been pondered for thousands of years; What makes man unique? That is to say what makes them different than other animals and should animals and humans be in the same Grouping or Classification? Indeed a Think Tank quality question to discuss and so it was recently in an online think tank with a young researcher from what is to be called the “Why Are Humans Unique Project” perhaps or a very similar name along those lines.


As the think tank begin to address the concept and the types of experiments we should set forth to find the answers we seek two sets of questions were considered;


(1) “Are Humans Unique to all other life?”


(2) “Should Animals and humans be in the same Grouping or Classification?”


One think tanker stated that he believed that it seems both questions are synonymous anyway? In that if you answer the question:


“Are Humans Unique to all other life?” If so, then they could not be considered in the classification of animals. If yes they might be grouped as animals.


“Should Animals and humans be in the same Grouping or Classification?” If so then they could not be considered unique to all other Earthly life forms. If no, then there is a good chance they would be in a Unique Category all their own.


So, you only have to answer one of these and you automatically have potentially have the correct answer to the other he stated. Indeed this makes sense and in the end the “Why Are Humans Unique Project” could possible answer the question once and for all. Consider this in 2006.
