    This is for all you agnostic/atheists out there.

    What exactly seperates man from beast other than the obvious fact that mankind has a higher intellect?

    The ability to categorize things as 'men' or 'beasts.'

    Why is this a question just for ag's and ath's? Muslim's don't get a vote? Scientologists are unable to answer that question?

    Nothing. Even our 'higher intellect' does not 'separate' us. The only real dividing line is 'them' and 'us'. If we were Chimpanzees we would only see 'them' and 'chimps'.

    IOW, asking that sort of question is decidedly human.

    So if nothing seperates man from beast, why then is it OK for mankind to kill and eat animals?

    Why not Muslims and other people of faith? I suppose it is because I assumed that they viewed mankind as a special creation that was made in the image of God and set apart from the animal kingdom.

    And because about 6+ billion people believes that, it must be so, isn't that how it goes?

    It's ok to marry animals. They make great spouses.

    Nothing separates us from animals; we are animals; check out discovery channel animals eat each other all the time; except herbivores. It is interesting that you thought the idea of being an animal is something agnostic/atheists would shy away from. perhaps the basis for all religions is the self loathing some animals of the genus homo-sapien appear to suffer from.

    So if there is precious little seperating animals and humans then I would presume that you defend animal rights like you do human rights.

    Is this the case?
