If it is "self" awareness, then that is a big difference indeed. Have any animals (the higher primates for example) bee shown to be self aware? How do they react when they look at themselves in a mirror? Dogs and cats show no sign of such awareness.


ADH ... several animals have passed the test you mention.

Ready to join the atheist legions now;-)? If not, why not?
