Dolphin safe

Scripture Add comments

They instinctively will protect their young, of course. But what would make a dolphin protect people? Dogs who have developed relationships with people will risk their lives for them, but why would wild dolphins risk their lives for people? There’s certainly a lot more going on in the world than our philosophies can manage or accept.

This reminds me of a great Douglas Adams quote:

…Man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much… the wheel, New York, wars, and so on, whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely the dolphins believed themselves to be more intelligent than man for precisely the same reasons.
