Only humans can appreciate music?

Has anybody else ever heard the argument from the religious crowd that only humans can appreciate music, proving that we're special creations?




I realise that this video is a couple of years old, but this is the first I've seen of it. It is yet another blow to the creationist wackos. Think they'll give up soon? *cough*


Edit: The first comment on this post suggested that the bird is just trained to do this routine. Well, scientists have studied this bird. Not only this species, but this EXACT bird. His name is Snowball. Check out what the scientists thought of him.

It's hard for people to believe, and maybe a bit humbling to some, but it seems that some animals like music.

I'm pretty sure that the bird is just trained to do this routine.

Sam, that's not what the scientists studying him concluded. Check out the links from the bird's website:

The bird may be able to appreciate music, but only humans can appreciate good music :)
