"A herd of elephants stayed in silence for two days after the death of Lawrence Anthony the man who saved them. Exactly one year after his death, to the day, the herd marched to his house again. It is something that science cannot explain."



Yep. Science is WOEFULLY anthropocentric in its bias towards animals. IOW, "science" is NOT objective in rating animal intelligence, empathy and memory BECAUSE it has been sold on the "apex predator = clever, scheming, conscience free plunderer for resources" world view that Darwin's Standard Theory of Evolution (SET) pushes.

Gentle, social animals are NOT considered that "intelligent". That is a huge mistake. Maybe someday, science will get its head out of its Darwinian predator worshipping ass.

For as much as we empathize with our canines, we have been stingy about recognizing empathy elsewhere in the animal kingdom, reserving it as a human trait.
