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

No, no no you've got the wrong end of the stick.

I meant that outside of the mental capacity of our brains, in our body for example we are weak.

IF YOU TAKE AWAY ALL OF HUMANITY'S ADVANTAGES, HUMANITY WILL HAVE NO ADVANTAGES!

And if you take away all of a fish's gills, it will not be able to breathe. What is your point?

Humans should be dead by nature's terms.

We only exist by brainpower and since we are that weak, before we could fully develop brainpower we would be massacred by all of our natural predators.

Therefore my conclusion.

Your conclusion is flawed. It ignores all those other adaptations that we mentioned. Did you know that some of our ancestors made tools not because they thought them up but rather it was an unconscious compulsion?

Give a monkey a stone axe, watch how it may just swing it around a bit and bash it here and there but do nothing actually with it.

Early human would be just as useless.

Though if i told you i was both trolling you and willfully ignoring all other arguments would you believe me?

I believe in seeing something through to the end, even this pitiful shambles of a thread.

This is why you won't last here, unless you change your behavior.
