Are We Really That Smart?

Are human beings really the smartest species on this planet? Are we exclusively at the top of the totem pole, like we seem to think we are? How important are we, exactly?

I used to answer an emphatic yes to the first two questions and without a doubt would vehemently defend humans' place in the cosmic scheme of things. But, when I take a look around at the mess we've made of this world, I seriously have my doubts.

One could literally argue that we are already in Hell and humans are to blame.

Anyway, my dog would make a better president than anything we have to choose from on the ballot this year (I really believe that). AND the world would be perfect if dogs were in charge.

What sayeth you?

Slight correction. A "person" is smart. "People" are dumb.
