I mean, seriously, you can't just give a species of animal intelligence.  You can't just give them fine motor skills, an inventive frame of mind that is species inherent, or a language center of the brain.  These are things that are extremely rare in the animal kingdom.  We killed off the other species that may have had it. 

So how are humans not special?

Outside our minds we are weak

I think you are vastly underestimating the power of brains over brawn. 

These are the things you can do with thinking:
Ennumerate stuff, like how your food is stronger and faster than you are.
Figure out how to get around that.
Make a trap to trap your stronger, faster food.

Here's what you can do with strength:
Break things

And to help defeat you "you can't just do that" attitude lets just assume i have god like powers and i can give them that kind of intellect.

So this is a pointless discussion.  Okay.

Youre also underestimating brute human strength. We have strong upper bodies because were adapted to climb trees. Also since our mutations are unique that makes them special by definition.

Also most people today are magnitudes weaker than we would have been back then because of our sedentary lifestyle vs. their get-food-or-starve existence.

But this is all about how people aren't so great, eet eez all so bohring wankery, Twid, not about reality.

Still not enough to fight a fully grown tiger though is it?

Yeah, we're totally not more formidable than tigers!  If we hadn't killed so many of them that there's probably less than three thousand in the wild left, we'd be in big trouble!@@@!!!

The tiger is not guaranteed to win the fight even if the human is unarmed. He just has to make winning the fight not worth it for the tiger.

The human probably got the tiger in that situation in the first place. Ever see swiss family robinson?
