The morally relevant difference lies in the essential
difference between
humans and the animal species we use as food, or kill in crop
fields, or
what-have-you.


You can identify some differences which hold between most
humans and
most nonhumans and claim that they are morally relevant, but
there will
always be some humans who don't have these differences from
nonhuman
animals.

=====================
But the main difference still remains. Within each person is the
seed of what being human is.
No such seed exists in ANY animal. The person you claim now
doesn't have the differences from animals has the potential to
achieve those differences. No matter how much hand-waving, and
how many strawmen you prop up, NO animals will ever achive the
difference. Again, your ignorance and stupidity blind you to
reality.
