What on earth brings you to that conclusion? If you had said self-aware instead of sentient, you'd have an arguable case. But you didn't.

Which part do you disagree with? That Humans can feel perceive, feel, think, have rational subjective thoughts, or that animals donít

"Sentient" is often used as a synonym of "self-aware".

Mainly, they do, so not that.

Don't what? They do some of those things (feel, perceive, think) and - if not human - not others (have rational thoughts, subjective or otherwise). Humans are just animals with the capacity for logic. Sadly, it is far too seldom used.

Logic has it's place however humans are more than just logical animals.

Where would we all be without a spot of doffcocking?

Still sat at our PCs, Macs and laptops, probably.

Sorry but that was just a case of a half edited reply
People get upset when I start a post with "Itís obviousÖ "

Ah, well, that's because this is the QI site. We're all here because we don't want to hear the obvious, since often the obvious turns out to be not quite right.
