Falling back on hierarchy again. I appreciate that you're trying not to, but you cannot help yourself. As a human, you value intellect over other abilities/skills. It is an aspect of our greatest strength, yet it is not that strength, in and of itself. If we had achieved dominance over our environment as a result of great speed or physical strength or perceptual ability, your divinity would shift thusly.
Before humans reach the age of 3, we are completely incapable of considering our surroundings from a vantage point other than our own. As an example, a small child sits directly in front of a television, blocking everyone's view in the process. If ordered to move, she will move, but never grasp that others were unable to see exactly what she saw. Perhaps it's time to broaden your perspective.
While you're at it, please explain how you've come to understand cetacean cognitive abilities better than that part of our scientific community, which has ponderously studied the topic for decades. It is a difficult field, filled with misconstrued data and experimental anthropomorphisms. I'm always anxious to learn. BTW, Neanderthal also had substantially greater brain mass than modern humans. To whose god did Neanderthal pray? Were they rendered extinct by your god?
Finally, please suggest a means of achieving canid immortality. I believe the Bible precludes such a possibility.
