Evolution and progress

We believe we are somehow different or greater than the other animals. Yet, our complexity and complacency, because of our evolution, come from the very animals we look down upon and ridicule. Where is there nobility and greatness in such a perspective?

It is a mistake to conflate evolution with progress. Evolution does not lead to betterment, it leads to the survival of the best adapted creatures to the environment it lives within.

There is no progress in evolution.
