Yes, we do have mammalian characteristics; however, we are not just animals, we are uniquely different from animals.
Man can construct arguments, debate, use logic, and draw conclusions.
Man has remarkable languages with vast written vocabularies, intricate grammar, and the ability to have deep conversations. Man has the desire to know why, studying medicine, astronomy, history, math, law, etc. Man can recognize beauty, admiring roses in a garden, a painting on the wall or a magnificent sunset. Man is creative and imaginative, developing music, dance, and drama performances. Man has a sense of humor delighting in a good laugh or comedy experience. Man has the desire for community and social relationships. Man has the desire and ability to worship the Creator. Man is remarkably different from animals and was made in the image of God.
