I am pretty sure there has been more than one post in which very different posters wrote – either facetiously or seriously – about the existence of a “food chain”, with human beings at the top of it. Because it has come from several different writers, I hope this survey won’t be interpreted as my trying to single anybody out. I’ve just become curious if it is a minority or majority belief among posters here. But if moderators think even taking a simple yes-no survey of people is too controversial, then they can take this post down.
I’ll go first, which is to say that I think that there is no “food chain” in which humans have a superior (or inferior) position. I don’t think this exists in nature, other than in people’s minds.
I’ll just state my rejection of the view, but if anyone wants to add to their acceptance or rejection anything pertinent to the idea of a “food chain,” fine with me.
