Feathered people

We humans arrogantly consider ourselves to be the crowns of creation, and pretend we alone feel emotions, think logically, use mathematics, and so on.

I’ve long argued, and have accumulated considerable evidence, that it ain’t so.

Poultry are almost stereotypically considered to be stupid.

Please read this remarkable essay by Nicholas Christof in which he combines personal experience as a farm boy with research findings to show that geese, chickens and the like are not that different from us, and smarter than you might imagine.

About Dr Bob Rich

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.
