    @StarDagger:
    Sentience means they ability to perceive or sense subjectively which means the majority of animals are sentient...

    If you mean self aware or something similar then you must know something biologists don`t.

    I mean, either way you are wrong.

    Correct me if I`m wrong, but "one of the other sentient species" also includes whales by your definition.

    @tainteddeity;
    Sentient - A lifeform with the capability to feel sensation, such as pain; thus most beings are sentients; Conscious or aware; Experiencing sensation or feeling. Whales are included in this classification. He is obviously smarter than you.
    @StarDagger; you were right in your statement.

    The sentience debate:
    I wasn`t very clear with my point.

    Correct, Whales are included in that definition of sentience.
    So is everything with a nervous system.

    That fact makes defining Whales by their sentience somewhat ridiculous.

    Like saying "I`ve always had a soft spot for one of the other things with hair" when talking about your brother.

    It`s an awkward phrase. Because it is an awkward phrase I was led to believe StarDagger meant `sentient` to mean `sef aware` or `intelligent enough to be classed as intelligent` that seems to be growing in popularity.

    Was watching Animal Planet Humpbacks special yesterday. Apparently, the pod herds herring into a central point, then they all dive and follow each other up in a spiral pattern, blowing bubbles, which creates a wall of air the herring can`t get through. The whales shoot upward then and get a massive feed. Awesome stuff.


    "Oooh look at all the pretty bubbles!"
    "Bubbles schmubbles... I gotta bad feeling about this..."

    Like saying "I`ve always had a soft spot for one of the other things with hair" when talking about your brother.

    Actually, it`s more of a "I`ve always liked one of the other mammals."
    Well, unless you consider your brother to be another species.

    I wonder if we are to whales what spiders are to us, creepy little things that we obviously can squash easily, and yet some can kill us in an instant. I wonder about the mind of a whale.

    I guess that cinches this argument. You win. And thanks for the heads-up, just in time; a whale came to my door wanting to borrow MY mountain bike just minutes after I read your comment and I was pre-warned so I said no.
