I wonder if you go to the restaurant, the waitress announces that the specialties are fried chicken and fried salmon and you say "I'll take the fish" and he brings you the chicken if you will be so understanding because "chicken, after all, are fish, just like us".
Bullshit. This idea is bonkers, nobody in the field would give any sort of thought to this nonsense. My major before medical school is Biology, you are not going to lecture me about basic phylogeny and evolutionary biology and this nonsense of "we are all fish" is just that, complete, utter, unequivocal nonsense.
Evolution is about the descent
of animals. Chickens are indeed fish, cladistically speaking, since they are descended from fish, just like us. But the clade to which we belong and the clade to which chickens belong separated about 300 million years ago. This is why humans are not chickens, and why mammals are not birds.
Humans are fish, cladistically speaking. The clade to which we belong were fish about 400 million years ago, give or take. And before then, they were worms.
Absolutely not. Not to mention, that you would have a much harder time saying the same crap about animals that evolved from an earlier branch. For instance, the parallel to animals with radial symmetry such as jellies, which despite their colloquial name "jellyfish" are not in fact fish, but cnidaria. Or perhaps tree? do you see yourself being a tree? Or a fungy? Maybe you are a single-cell archean...
No, because these organisms belong to different clades, which separated from ours long, long ago (more than a billion years ago, in the case of the tree or the fungus). We are not descended from trees or fungi, therefore we are not
trees or fungi. We trace our line of descent back through the primates, the placental mammals, the synapsids, the amniotes, the amphibians, the lobe-finned fish, the bony fish, the worms, and back to the earliest colonies of choanoflagellate eukaryotes…. But not
back through the cnidaria or the fungi or the plants. They belong to completely different clades. Evolution is all about lines of descent
I don't become proud of things that I don't have any control over. So being a human, is not something I can be proud, I didn't have any choice on the matter, I didn't "work hard to become a human". I am proud of my academic achievements nontheless.
You have repeatedly insulted birds for their supposed lack of intelligence, as though nature itself values intelligence more than, say, physical strength or the ability to fly. Having an oversized brain is no better than having an oversized tail fan - they are both merely evolutionary strategies to enhance the chances of passing on our genetic material to the next generation.
