Dinosaurs did not walk with humans. The evolutionary record says different. They gambled.
Behaving morally because of a hope of reward or a fear of punishment is not morality. Morality is not bribery or threats. Religion is bribery and threats. Humans have morality. We don't need religion.
To me, I think people who don't think it's a big deal to toss a plastic bottle in the garbage are not only being irresponsible, but I think they're being disrespectful of all the other humans on earth.
Humans love sex, we need sex, it's how we connect, it reminds us we're alive, it's the third most basic human need, after food and good movie popcorn.
Ants have the most complicated social organization on earth next to humans.
E. O. Wilson
The only thing I want is to awaken all humans on the planet that we are living on Mother Earth.
In the history of the world, all five mass extinctions have been accompanied by massive climate change, so we are facing an incredibly serious threat. In fact, we are technically in the sixth mass extinction right now, and it is the first mass extinction being attributed to humans.
In order to feel loved, be respected and stay connected, we humans have a tendency to lie. We lie about who we are, what we want, what we need, what we have done or will do. Perhaps 'lie' is too strong a word. Let me say that what we do is withhold the truth.
I've seen a look in dogs' eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.
One shouldn't be afraid of the humans. Well, I am not afraid of the humans, but of what is inhuman in them.
A lot of people have this ego need that makes them want to believe that Earth is the center of the universe and humans are the most important species, the supreme expression of creation.
The planet Earth, though not threatened with destruction by man-made global warming, is by no means indestructible. There are many unpredictable events within our solar system, and still more outside it, that could make Earth uninhabitable by humans.
I think it's unfair, but they have the right as fallible, screwed-up humans to be unfair; that's the human condition.
The greatest weakness of most humans is their hesitancy to tell others how much they love them while they're alive.
Orlando Aloysius Battista
You shouldn't say 'animals' to distinguish between humans and non-humans. We are all animals.
Out of 6 billion humans, the troublemakers are just a handful.
Evil is the product of the ability of humans to make abstract that which is concrete.
I don't think you'll ever have a perfect world because we humans are prone to error, and so we're always in search of an upgrade.
Humans are pretty crafty but will fold quickly in severe cold.
It's perfectly obvious that there is some genetic factor that distinguishes humans from other animals and that it is language-specific. The theory of that genetic component, whatever it turns out to be, is what is called universal grammar.
Maybe humans are just the pet alligators that God flushed down the toilet.
If you want to believe that humans walked with dinosaurs and the planet is a few thousand years old, that is absolutely fine with me. If you want to teach this to your kids, I don't care. If states want to teach creationism in their schools, there is nothing I can do about it, so I don't sweat it.
Humans have a knack for choosing precisely the things that are worst for them.
J. K. Rowling
The very large brain that humans have, plus the things that go along with it - language, art, science - seemed to have evolved only once. The eye, by contrast, independently evolved 40 times. So, if you were to 'replay' evolution, the eye would almost certainly appear again, whereas the big brain probably wouldn't.
This is the most challenging activity that humans get into, which is love. You know, where we have the sense that we can't live without love. That life has very little meaning without love.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
