How does one observe these things? Please tell me what a prideful or shameful dog would be like if you don't think Aynat's examples are accurate?
You're the one making a definite claim. You are certain, I am not. Burden of proof is on you to prove your claim. Your argument is pretty funny:
Darfius: A is definely, absolutely not true.
ATY: Well maybe A is true. I'll postulate that it's true.
Darfius: Burden of proof is on you to prove me wrong for daring to say you don't know!
As far as negative reinforcement and shame go, humans get trained via such things as negative reinforcement as well. Some Jews would likely feel terrible guilt about eating pork, and Catholic guilt is well known. These things come about due to the person's upbringing. Reinforcement techniques are standard methods used in the raising of a child.
What exactly defines pride, shame and guilt such that you absolutely know only humans experience them?
