The Burden of Proof

Rhinos have patiently allowed ourselves to be tested and examined for Many Times. The idea behind these investigations seems to be, do Rhinos think and respond as Humans do? If We don’t, We are dumb beasts. If We do, then We are extravagantly outstanding and should be elected.

It does not seem to occur to the folks running these tests that the point is not to analyze Rhinos, but to prove the Excellence of Humans. The tests ultimately prove nothing whatever.

There will never be a Proof of Intelligence, because Intelligence corresponds to the life each critter is created to lead, natural to its kind. Refute that, if you will. If you were given a test designed by a Starfish, how do you think you would do?
