What defines that?

Biology places you and H. sapiens sapiens but I think being human is also about culture.

Everything about a human makes a human. Stupid question...

Just like everything about a cat makes a cat, so on and so forth.

well NO. mammals share alot of the same genes so not "everything about humans makes them human" acutally there are just slight changes in the genome that make the difference between mamals. Those slight differences give out vastly different results though.

Well, i think the question should then be:

"What differentiate humans from other animals?"

.

But I actually stand by my statement that everything about a human makes a human. Even if we share some genes with other animals, it's not everything.

Side: Everything about a human

The ability to think and rationalize. Also, being compassionate toward your fellow man.
