Are humans morally superior to animals? If animals can act morally, then you can only COMPARE the morality of one species with another species, like compare the music of Mozart with Beethoven. But neither is better than the other; they are just different. If animals are amoral, then you cannot judge human morality against something that does not exist, like you cannot judge the goodness of a robot against nothing at all. You might have a preference, but that is merely personal taste.
