I enjoyed the discussion we had on Friday. Although I still side with the "no" group, the "yes" group had many valid points.

The idea of humans being the only beings that can reason is obviously a good point. Why can't other animals reason like we can? Is it that they are not capable? Is it possible that in the future other animals could devolop this skill? What are the brain functions that we have that we use for our reasoning that animals do not have?
