Essay talk:Why Evolution Gives More Value to Humanity than Creationism Does
Back in the day...
Back when Jerry Falwell was making a name for hisself dissing gay rights advocates, (think mid to late 1970's), the prevailing attitude went, "crimes against nature,". When it turned out that other animals had non-dominating homosexual sex, homosexuals became "no better than animals!"

Interesting point of view.
I was thinking the same thing too
I suspect this is just the same old human exceptionalism. What does evolution say? We "deserve" to be dominant? In my view, it does say only, which variant deserves to live, and which to die out. All species that made it to this day, they made it because they were adaptable. By this logic, all the species that live today, can be called "dominant". But not all species are intelligent. It seems that evolution does not prefer intelligence to any other trait that lives on today.
But I get the point. Creationism says, we're intelligent because God chose it to be "just because". God could have chosen fruit flies to be intelligent, and then they would do all the science, philosophy and art that we do today. But because of evolution, we do it because it helped us to live in the past. Intelligence helped us to survive. Better use it today as well, folks... ;) — Unsigned, by: 184.108.40.206 / talk
