Do humans only differ in degree from animals?

Evolutionists often use instances of animal ‘altruism’ and tool use as evidence that humans differs only in degree, not in kind, from the rest of the animal kingdom.

  • Vampire bats commonly regurgitate blood to share with unlucky or sick roost mates that have been unable to find a meal, often forming a buddy system.
  • Raccoons inform conspecifics about feeding grounds by droppings left on commonly shared latrines. A similar information system has been observed to be used by common ravens….
