What Is "smarter" And What Is "Christianity"

Hi
Great. When Starr Treck Fohr came out, I noticed they used the "Songs of the Humpback Whale" audio recording in the movie. I had
listened to that recording as one of my favorites
almost ten years earlier. One should define
"smarter" and also inquire whether it depends
primarily on physical brain traits or on individual choices. Albert Einstein's brain was reportedly a little smaller than average for a human male, yet his interests place him in the "smarter" category.
Elephants also have much larger brains than humans -- but I don't know about their convolutions.
You mention the conflict with "Christianity"
which probably should read "conflict with
everyone's view who holds a different opinion of nonhuman creatures." Certainly I was inspired by Jesus much more than by the God who stated all that strange patter during so many parts of the "Old testament."
