dignityWhat is it being human? What does it mean to be human? Then what is the dignity being human?

Is it morality? Is it humanity? Is it ethics? Is it gratefulness? Is it intelligence? How do humans differ from other life forms when it comes to these values?

Why is dignity even a concern for being human? What is dignity itself? And where does that dignity come from? Is from within or without? Who dignifies the human being? And why does the source of that dignity even matter?

Are these questions important to you?
