Not even. Humans have driven more species to extinction.

That doesn't necessarily mean we are more savage than a T-Rex. It jsut means we are more destructive; strictly speaking there is indeed a disconnect between savageness and destructiveness.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

I heard that the latest theories about the T-rex was that it was a scavenger because something that size with those short arms wouldn't want to risk running and falling over.

Add to that it was probably covered in feathers.

RE: Do guns cause Rape? What do you think is the leading cause of rape?
I really did not get the satire. Good call some of you.

Now to let out some of the gas that has formed on this thread:

My daughter was raped when she was a very little girl.

My sister was gang raped in the military when she was 24.

My aunt was raped on her wedding night.

In my job, I see rape victims every single work day.

The purpose of a rapist is to exert power and control over the victim.

Guns have nothing to do with the purpose of the rapist.

I do not see where gun are directly connected to rape. In some cases it may be a tool to subdue the victim. I do not see where taking guns out of the equasion would have much if any impact to the rape rate.

As far as gun control, I am in the middle. I favor regulated gun ownership. If we are going to continue allowing gun ownership in the US it should come with manditory training testing, licensing and safe storage requirements. I do not see an all out ban as a realistic possibility.

fierce, ferocious, or cruel; untamed: savage beasts. The definition of savage. Humans are fierce(guns), we are ferocious(all the wars we have) and cruel(go back to the statement I made about humans destroying)

Humans have driven a handful of species extinct. Natural selection has extinguished millions.

But natural selection is a process, not a living being.

Natural selection does not have a choice to be savage because it is only a process, if that is the case gravity is a savage too. Humans however know what they were doing and continued anyway.
