We're adding "animal intelligence" to rsr.org/squeeze. The claim that apes should have the highest intelligence in the animal kingdom because we humans supposedly evolved from them turns out to be yet another fail. Did you know, for example, that certains species of birds demonstrate that they know what other birds are thinking? On today's Real Science Radio program Bob Enyart and Fred Williams discuss really fun and hugely significant examples of animal intelligence! Wait till you can hear what the lowly ant does! RSR thanks Answers in Genesis for publishing Dr. Joe Francis' article Smarter Than You Think which we've used as a framework for today's broadcast. Also, February is our annual telethon month and our goal is $50,000 so we can really use your help! We're only at a couple thousand dollars so far. So if you can, please check out kgov.com/store or call us at 1-800-8Enyart (836-9278) to purchase materials, sign up for a subscription, or to make a one-time or monthly donation. Thanks so much!
From kgov.com/definitions: These are RSR-styled...
- Animal: Excepting humans, a multicellular biological organism with specialized sense organs and voluntary movement.
- Mammal: A warm-blooded vertebrate animal with hair or fur, females that secrete milk, and, except for the platypus and spiny anteater, the birth of live young.
- Animal Kingdom: The animals of the world collectively, excluding insects and fish (which are more likened to biological robots than to volitional organisms)
- Human being: A person, made in God's likeness, with body, soul and spirit (whereas animals have body and soul)
- Plant: A biological organism that synthesizes nutrients in its leaves by photosynthesis (possessing a body but neither a soul or spirit).
* One minute video of a magpie perceiving what many apes don't:
* Otherwise, this is a great video on mole rats vocalizing: If you ignore the absurd claim made by Dr. Gary Lewin of Berlin's Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine about mole rats and human social behavior, this video announces extraordinary research and an exciting discovery!
(If you have a choice, you might want to avoid the Max Delbrück Center for your own medical treatment. Researchers who remain so oblivious to the ubiquitous evidence against Darwinian rsr.org/evolution may also miss the insights needed to save your life.)
