Responsibility

Being at the top means you take care of whoever's below.

A lot of fundamentalist Christians will tell you with much pride that God created humans in His image and put the rest of creation below the human. Unfortunately, they think this is a "go-ahead" to rape the Earth with deforestation, pollution, and out-of-control industrial development that threatens the existence of animals that are crucial to the balance of nature.

No, that's not it. Being at the top means you take care of whoever is below you. It's responsibility. If we are truly intelligent, more developed, and divinely selected, that means we care for the earth and all other life that inhabits it.
