I dunno, the accepted meaning of the word Intelligence.

Maybe?
Perhaps you could not see that I was asking a rhetorical question if we decide to be arbitrary. Being arbitrary, I could easily determine that your sense is comparable to that of a sponge or a turnip.

I don't think any of these "The Vague Society of Nebulous Meanies are going to take over the world and light up a planet" theories worry too much about practical considerations like that. It's all about rousing ill-informed, paranoiac fear, not making sense.

I agree with frogfish. Are squid able to explore planets outside our solar system? -_-

Do squid destroy the very planet they live on? Do they tear down natural habitats, murder each other as well as other creatures for money/sport/fun, pollute the air, destroy the ozone?

Who's the dummies now?

For all we know, they do.  Most animals tend to destroy the area they live in; animals in the ocean, I would venture to guess, have it a bit easier due to the medium they live in, but not through any action of their own.  Do they tear down natural habitats?  I honestly haven't a clue.  Maybe, like bears, elephants, and anteaters, they do cause considerable damage in their quest for food.  Do they kill each other for sport or pleasure?  Considering their relative rareness, I sincerely doubt it, but it would surprise me at all.  Many animals kill merely for the pleasure of the kill.  Perhaps, like the killer whale, giant squid enjoy grasping seals and tossing them through the air several dozen feet over and over again, in a sadistic game of volleyball.

One thin I would be willing to be money on, though.  Even if giant squid recognized the damage they do merely through their existance, I do not believe they either can, or even would, take steps to repair their mistakes.  The only animal in the entire world that has been known to do that is the human.

No, because they lack intelligence. They cannot define sport or leisure. Aquatus is right. We are more advanced and intelligent. Squid, although considered intelligent, are not as much as humans. Your ideology of intelligence is skewed.

It was hardly my "ideology of intelligence" - was just trying to offer another perspective. original.gif

Whatever it is, trying to prove squids are more intelligent is a lost arguement.

Well, we know there are NO mermaids....they were just a yarn from intoxicated sailors about dugongs.

Nothing rivals humans...what makes you think there are another creature living in the depths of the ocean. It is very, very unlikely.
