Aw c'mon spud my man ... they do have their moments ... stay away from the headlines and ye be fine ... :)

He who postpones the hour of living rightly ... is like the rustic who waits for the river to run out ... before he crosses.

Considering man is the only animal that deviated from natures path of a survival of the fittest or natural selection way of life, instead placing the unfit above the fit, severely weakening the human species on a global scale I would say all other animal species are smarter than man.

But not intelligent enought to survive.
A high percentage of dogs eat poop.    Poop full of bacteria.   Not very smart.

Not sure what everyone is basing this on, but I would say humans are much smarter than animals.   At least once we get past the infant stage.

He also said, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results."

Horses' intelligence is also underrated by humans.
Just because an animal can't run a computer, etc. doesn't mean they are stupid. They are smart enough to know how to survive, and don't need the theory of relativity to accomplish this.

No one wants to be told that the creature we put on the table at dinnertime is an intelligent being, so we measure their intellect by our standards.  I believe they may be as intelligent as humans in their own way.  Few of us could survive a cold winter outside, naked and alone, with nothing but our claws and teeth and wits to survive, but they do.

But we are here, right? Which means we have survived right along all of the other animals that escaped extinction. Some animals do not survive a cold winter. Some freeze to death, some starve to death. we are intelligent enough to build shelters and provide our own heat to survive.

How long would humans last if all the Super markets shut, there would be a mass extinction within weeks,but animals would survive  with maybe a few humans who know how to live off the land and sea by trapping and fishing.

Animal populations are regulated by disease and predation. Humans have eliminated the predation aspect completely and minimised the disease aspect. That we constructed a method of farming and distributing our food so that some of us could specialise in other skills is a sign of our higher intelligence. That some of have lost the ability to "live off the land" is an unfortunate consequence.
