1 Corinthians 13:13

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.
      Swans are one of the few animals that mate for life.  Genetics have shown that while they occasionally have an 'extramarital' dalliance... they return to their original mate.  They theorize that the 'affair' is not because they desire another mate, but when natural procreation isn't happening, they find a 'sperm' donor or 'surrogate' in order to ensure survival of the species.

     Humans claim to be the superior species because we can think and reason.  Use tools.  Communicate.  And yet we do more to destroy ourselves and others than any species.

     So really, who is the superior species?  The one that does what it must to ensure survival?  Or the one that destroys itself?

  1. I really don't see how we can claim supremacy. There are other tool using animals, and birds, and insects. And loving does seem to be much, much better handled by animals. Both the permanent and the temporary kinds of love.
