Thursdays, I Think Seriously, About Stupid Shit
Ek’s last article (#54) yesterday morning prompted this runawaytrain of thought…
Humans, scientists in particular, seem to me to show great arrogance believing we are the top of the evolutionary chain… that we have evolved the farthest. Many even seem to think we are the only planet with life… ah, but that is for another discussion. For now, lets just stick to the monkey article
Now for the first time, scientists reveal a primate other than humans can also express a variety of messages by combining sounds into different sequences. The finding suggests this level of language might have occurred far earlier in evolution than before thought.
I just have to say… Duh-huh!
Of course they speak & have words! So do dogs. And cats. And lions. And polar bears. And whales.
Do these guys not have pets?? Yeah, none of those are primates, but if they communicate verbally wouldn’t it stand to reason that monkeys do too?
It is human arrogance to believe we are the only ones who communicate verbally. I believe many animals are in some sense smarter than we… Dolphins have their own language and some of them have become bi-lingual with humans… So have parrots…
Thanks for stopping in, so glad You’re here …. (yes, YOU!)
this is an open thread… relax.. Hang out and chit chat awhile…
O &… Please don’t rec the pony party, another will trot up in a few hours.
