    You can sue the owner of the dog for the dog barking at you. If the dog barks on you, you should remove it, lest its paws muddy your clothing.

    I would say it would be, if there was legal humans. The only thing they don't do like us, is have a birth of any sort like ours. But you would even call a test tube baby, a "legal" human.

    Well, I thought he'd at least try to look a bit different.
    Guess somebody should notify JamesR about this, so he can ban 2 of preference.

    Human being. See Monster.
    Monster. A human being by birth, but in some part resembling a lower animal. “A monster… hath no inheritable blood, and cannot be heir to any land, albeit it be brought forth in marriage; but, although it hath deformity in any part of its body, yet if it hath human shape, it may be heir.” 2 B1. Comm.246.

    Recursion - noun
    Definition: see recursion

    If it looks like a human, and it walks like a human, and it quacks like a human, then, guess what, it is a HUMAN!!!

    you all look very confused, so here's the correct definition of human: a being who can think consciously. animals can't do that, so humans are not animals.

    btw, don't try to look up the definition of human in encyclopedias or dictionaries because the definition is usually wrong.

    Can you show conclusively that other animals can't think consciously?

    Storing food for the winter seems to me to be conscious thought ...and many animals do it. And if you say that it's purely "instinctive", then show why it's NOT instinctive for similar acts by humans.

    ...LOL! That's not bad, but ....maybe it's something like "Humans are the only animal that actively and consciously pollutes it's own environment."
