Harry Schlo▀macher┤s ARTEN-Ranking__LINEAR (places 1 to 7)



Little history:
A thoroughly likeable - otherwise also competent - professor said at some point in the relevant program of "Planet Knowledge": "For me, the dinosaurs are the crown of creation!" --- Well, that's just his opinion ... but on the other hand it's too one-sided, too short-sighted, too rash. Because his judgment only refers to the - admittedly - extremely long existence of this species. But, are they really the masters in the field? Aren't there other species that have existed longer? In addition, there is something very bad in terms of quality; because shortly after the professor's statement I asked myself why the dinosaurs have not managed to develop intelligence in all the 150 million (!!) years. For me, this is a decisive criterion for the success record of a species. In any case, I'm grateful to "our" professor for his opinion - after all, it woke up benign "sleeping dogs" in me again and provoked a much more meaningful ranking.

THIS IS HOW THE (DINO-)SAURIANS, HIGHLY PRAISED BY THE PROF, FINISH FAR BEHIND IN 9TH PLACE! ! !

HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH



1ST PLACE ! ! ! fish

Ability to use complex, concise word language, to culture, technology, research, science ...and last but not least: beings with self-awareness = none fulfilled = 0 points
--------------
Intelligence level = low = 1 point (Even the much-vaunted octopuses only have hunting/fleeing or attacking/defending intelligence! And dolphins can only orientate themselves well in the water with their special localization. So not a huge thing either...)
Radius of action = water = 1 point
For 510 million years = 5.10 points
Mass Extinction = 8 X survived = 8 points

TOTAL SCORE = 15

-------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- -----------------------


2ND PLACE ! ! People

1) Ability to use complex, concise word language 2) to culture 3) Technique 4) research 5) Science 6) ...and last but not least: beings with self-awareness = everything fulfilled = 6 points
--------------
Intelligence level = high = 3 points
Radius of Action = Land + Water + Air + Space = 4 points
Has existed for around 3 million years = 0.03 points (MODUS for this: every 100 million years = 1 point)
Mass extinctions = none = 0 points
Ice Ages = 1 X survived = 1 point

TOTAL SCORE = 14.03

-------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- -----------------------


3RD PLACE ! amphibians

Ability to use complex, concise word language, culture, technology, research, science + beings with self-awareness = nothing fulfilled = 0 points
--------------
Intelligence level = very low = 0 points Radius of Action = Land + Water = 2 points Exists since 340 million years = 3.40 points Mass Extinction = 5 X survived = 5 points Ice Ages = 3 X survived = 3 points

TOTAL SCORE = 13.40

-------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- -----------------------



4TH PLACE non-flowering land plants
Action radius = land = 1 point Existed for 400 million years = 4 points Mass Extinction = 5 X survived = 5 points Ice Ages = 3 X survived = 3 points
TOTAL SCORE = 13



5TH PLACE wingless insects
Ability to use complex, concise word language, culture, technology, research, science + beings with self-awareness = nothing fulfilled = 0 points
--------------
Intelligence level = very low = 0 points Action radius = land = 1 point For 375 million years = 3.75 points Mass Extinction = 6 X survived = 6 points Ice Ages = 1 X survived = 1 point
TOTAL SCORE = 11.75



6TH PLACE reptiles
Ability to use complex, concise word language, culture, technology, research, science + beings with self-awareness = nothing fulfilled = 0 points
--------------
Intelligence level = very low = 0 points Action radius = land = 1 point 305 million years = 3 points Mass Extinction = 5 X survived = 5 points Ice Ages = 1 X survived = 1 point
TOTAL SCORE = 10



7TH PLACE mammals
Ability to use complex, concise word language, culture, technology, research, science + beings with self-awareness = nothing fulfilled = 0 points
--------------
Intelligence level = low = 1 point Radius of Action = Land + Water = 2 points Since 205 million years = 2 points Mass Extinction = 2 X survived = 2 points Ice Ages = 2 X survived = 2 points
TOTAL SCORE = 9
