    The Light Within

    All this talk of religion, but it's how you live your life that is the all-important thing.
    If you set out each day to do all the goodness and kindness that you can, and to do no harm to man or beast, then you are walking the highest path.
    And when your time is up, if you can leave the earth a better place than you found it, then yours will have been a life well lived.

    Yes, it's a very good page, Noble Knight. Perhaps the word "prove" in the web page title is a bit strong, but the examples certainly offer strong support to the view.

    Re: The Light Within

    I see and understand your point but I think what the author of the piece is alluding to is that animals have a range of emotions and values very similar to our own. And in some individual cases, perhaps superior.

    "I saw deep in the eyes of the animals the human soul look out upon me. I saw where it was born deep down under feathers or fur, or condemned for a while to roam four footed among the brambles. I caught the clinging mute glance of the prisoner and swore that I would be faithful"
    - Henry David Thoreau

    Yes, I quite agree.
