Human Exceptionalism

Michael Mountain explains in this essay what seems to be profoundly wrong with the world: human exceptionalism. We, humans, tend to believe that we are far superior than any other creature, that we should subdue the Earth and that we are better than any other animal. We believe that we are allowed to do pretty much anything to God's creatures.

However, the problem is that this reasoning has brought only devastation to Godís Creation. We have pushed many species into extinction; we have and continue to torment and kill other creatures unnecessarily for taste, profit, entertainment, clothing, etc.; and whatís worse, we donít see anything wrong with the continued belief that humans are special and that other creatures are not. This, in turn, leads us to treat other creatures in ways that certainly don't reflect God's love for them.
