The correct comparison is to ask, are human's strongest attribute superior to any other animal's strongest attribute? The answer is easily yes.

We are able to create an environment that we prefer, invent instruments to overcome any weaknesses we have physically and mentally.

We can fly faster than any bird, in a plane.
We can travel faster than any land animal, in a car.
We can physically defeat any animal, with weapons.
We can exist in environments where no others could, space.

We completely dominate all other species on the planet.

Actually the water bear can easily survive in space so...

But yeah I see what you're saying.

We're created in his image? I guess that explains all the crime and violence nowadays...

Ummm...Ok, like this is just a comedy routine gone horribly awry, right? Please do not get your science knowledge from Bill O'Reilly, we know what causes the tides. We know what causes thunder. I've read your bible and must of missed the instructions on building electronic devices.

If he gave man "dominion" over the earth how come he didn't tell us how to stop floods, storms and earthquakes? Your arguments will never have any depth because you are mistaking belief in something for knowledge.

Fist of all, where does it say exactly in the Bible that God gave us free will. The Bible seems to indicate the negative of that idea. Didn't God tell Abram/ Abraham that his descendants would be persecuted in Egypt? How exactly could he have KNOWN it would happen unless he knows the future, which means that he must know the choices that lead up to the future since God is typically all knowing.

Plus, isn't the theist concept of free will bogus anyways?

Woah, slow down there chief. Heads might explode.

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.
