      Bats can't even compete with birds which is why they are nocturnal.
      The fastest flying animals are birds, the largest and heaviest flying animals are birds. Birds can flying for longer distances, higher altitudes, and longer duration than any bat. Birds are also far more agile in the air than bats. Multiple bird species prey on bats, while only 1 or two bats have the ability to prey on birds.
      In what way is this article's claim that bats "beat birds at their own game". When birds are infinitely more effective flying animals?

      Except bats can't fly in cold climate because their surface to volume ratio is too big due to the living skin tissue that makes up their wings, making them lose too much heat to the environment.
      Birds on the other hand have fairly small limbs, with most of the wing being comprised of dead tissue (feathers) which also insulate them

    That's not exactly true. The reproductive role women play is passive as men like to spread their seed, so they don't have to do much for male attention. Men are the ones that "dress flashy" ("look at how much money/status I have" because women are pickier.

    it's not that different.
    In most species the female attract the male passively with pheromones or other visual clues, and then the male does actions to reproduce with her, whether it's by trying to get her to choose him, or by beating other rival males.

    In humans it's the same. Female humans have physical characteristics that attract the attention of the male humans, but then it's the male human who has to make the first move.
    So the general norm is female attracts multiple males->males compete-> winning male reproduces
    Winning can be being chosen by the female or beating all other males.

    Of course that is just a general sequence. The specifics can vary wildly based in their reproductive habits.
    There's a difference in animals where male and female mate and then go their own way. Animals where 1 male has a harem. Animals where multiple males and females coexist and are highly promiscuous.

    For instance in birds that form long lasting pairs there's a period of time where both birds sort of flirt and dance with each other in order to check their compatibility.
    Humans do something similar since they also form long lasting pairs.

    Birds are lame, and by retroactive association dinosaurs are dragged down and suck too. Bird bodies are horrendous. They're weak, porous, disease prone, you even so much as fart near them and they asphyxiate like a coal mine canary. Low tolerance for heavy metals, pollution, their constitution means they cant survive a famine of more than a week without dying of malnutrition. Their fragile little bodies get ripped apart by little more than weak high velocity pellets. This is a species that's arguably smarter than cats, but are still cat food, older than most mammals as a whole yet still fucking flies into windows.

      And the only way they can kill anything is by surprise or by preying on the extremely young and weak. Mammals can fight prey stronger than them head on, but birds operate like school shooters. Without the element of surprise and a good weapon they're skin and (hollow) bones otherwise, and they can't survive without a means of escape.

      There is no animal less admirable than the bird.

Crows and the like can be very smart for birds, but are no where near the level of the great apes, elephants, or dolphins. They just lack the brain capacity for that same level of complex thought and will not achieve anything even in the absence of humans. They would be beaten again by the other apes and other mammals.

Why does Disney have a stupid bird in a lot of their movies? Have you seen a bird? The morons run into glass. The absolute brain dead cunts can't even get out of a room properly. Imagine being so dense you not only miss out on avenging the dinosaurs as their last descendants, but you let yourself get damn near domesticated in cages by apes. Some say that crows are pretty smart. But that's because other birds are such hollow skulled, vapid creatures that they look smart by comparison; it's a pretty low bar.

            When a mammal is monogamous it is because they are clever and noble. When a bird does it they just evolved to be unable to reconsider their situation. Mammals can be more than animals, but b*rds are always what they are regardless of the accuracy and speed of their problem solving circuits. You could say that we have souls, and they are merely more refined lizards.

                What Searle and many others failed to consider (due to human arrogance) is the possibility that we are Chinese Rooms ourselves, with our brain executing an algorithm which no independent part understands. In fact, currently not even the whole understands. We have some limited introspective ability, but no human can explain their own thought process to minutia. Otherwise they could write down the steps as a program and execute a copy of their mind. We are actually meat based information processors which have a lot of complexity. We call this complexity "intelligence" or "sapience". There is nothing particularly special about it, except that our brains have the highest purposeful complexity of anything currently known. If we made a machine with a similar level of purposeful complexity, then it could be as inscrutable as a human mind and develop independent goals.

                We can, but due to free will and the soul, even with full understanding of the human mind its output can not be predicted. The “program” has the ability to evaluate and change itself at will. This is something birds have lost or never fully developed because it’s inefficient and takes a lot more neurons than their metabolism and energy demanding lifestyle can spare, when it is much better to think correctly the first time every time without any synapses wasted on comprehension.

                Yeah people that don't understand how the brain works often think this is possible.

                it's not, but you'd have to ask a medical doctor or a biologist to learn that. To a physicist or a CS guy, everything is a computer.

                They did consider that, the whole point of the Chinese Room argument is that if you are a human and are conscious, you can reasonably assume that every other human and some animals are conscious because our brains basically work the same. The problem with true AI that its shills always sweep under the rug is that it still hasn’t been proven that a computer can truly work the same way as a brain. Seale himself didn’t even say that AI was impossible, just that he would only buy it if some technology could truly replicate the structures and mechanisms of the brain.

              Your brain was designed by natural selection to crave binding with another, but also to bind poorly such that your relationships are self destructive. You're not special for fighting. Making you fight is part of the game our genetics "planned" for us, because long ago mammals got stuck on this method of fitness discovery. Having to go through a bunch of pain to get and keep something doesn't actually make the thing more valuable. That's just your sunk cost bias welling up to help you cope.

                birds have gone down a rabbit hole and become the twinks and incels of nature by specializing to signal fitness to the opposite sex. they have had longer to advance than primates have had to exist. birds specializing in getting fucked, mammals specializing in not getting fucked over. more brutal competition drives more extreme advancement. and why would birds care? they fly away from everything. already said in the thread, eagles are 15lb incels that kill by stabbing 150lb chad in the back out of nowhere and then running off to where chad can't get them.

                if your relationships self destruct then you must be supremely fit to stop that and achieve maximum gene spreading.

                avian monogamy encourages weakness. mammals evolved to conquer their instincts to create better ones out of thin air. thus the mammal conquers and the bird merely exists. the bird runs monogamy.exe and is done there, the mammal fights against a machine and fitness is defined by winning. when mammals are gone birds will still exist, but mammals will not be gone. mammals will have transcended and exceeded the lowly avian even more and surpassed even reproduction. the mammal will be eternal, the bird will still just eat, fuck and fly. and the bird can not consider themselves at peace because they have no reason to have a concept for peace, it would be an inefficient operation to have existential thoughts as a highly optimized reproduction machine. only the mammal by knowing endless torment can appreciate endless peace, beyond the most peace achievable by biological life. birds are a dead end.
