I got into a quite heated discusion about veganism the other day with my sister. She believes that humans are on top of the food chain. I believe that this is ridiculious. Honestly, sure maybe we are the most intelligent, but animals are very intelligent. And really now try standing up to an angry, hungry tiger without your guns hm. I aplogize for my ranting. But these things, this close mindedness gets me a bit worked up.
There is no single food chain. There are thousands of food chains throughout the world. Virtually all humans are not part of any food chain as their technology has separated them from the natural world. There are however still some primitive natives who are part of actual food chains and in those food chains there are large animals & insects that feed on them, so, even those humans cannot claim to be at the ‘top’ of the chains they’re in (if there is even a top to be claimed).
@LittleLotte said it best though.
Even if there were a single food chain and we were at the ‘top’ of it, that would mean absolutely nothing.
