    Lightbulb The Human-being Debate

    Are We Human, Or Are We Dancer?

    This is a question that has boggled the minds of philosophers for centuries and centuries to come.

    I for one believe that we are human, but many people disagree and advocate for the truth - that we are in fact - Dancer.

    The Human/Dancer Truth Movement campaign for the "true knowledge" of - what they call, Dancer-being - society. They lobby for a reform of history to appeal to what they believe Humans truly are - Dancer.

    Discuss.

    Or maybe you're just disappointed that you wasted all the time of clicking, waiting for said page to load and reading this post?

    In the biggest of all possible pictures, I believe God created man with free will so we are human not puppets. I am also a Calvinist which may seem like a paradox to some.

    This sort of makes me cry. Just a little, on the inside

    The answer to this is in the nature of words, themselves. When a particular type of stimulus becomes relevant enough to society that society must communicate about it, society develops a word that represents the stimulus. A subgroup of the society designates a word for the stimulus and the rest of the society catches on. Words, therefore, are defined democratically. Thus, although "human" and "dancer" are not mutually exclusive, we are "human" because we decided to call ourselves "human."

    How does this tie into the men vs. Devo debate?

    They are both wrong; we're even More Human Than Human
