About Me: I went from looking for god to finding him evil to finding he does not exist, all before turning 14. Now, I can proudly say, I'm a libertarian, an anarchist, and a free thinker.

| Dolphins 'have their own names'
| Wednesday, May 10, 2006
More evidence that we are not as unique as we think we are.
Dolphins communicate like humans by calling each other by "name", scientists in Fife have found.
The mammals are able to recognise themselves and other members of the same species as individuals with separate identities, using whistles.
St Andrews University researchers studying in Florida discovered bottlenose dolphins used names rather than sound to identify each other.
The three-year-study was funded by the Royal Society of London.
Dr Vincent Janik, of the Sea Mammal Unit at St Andrews University, said they conducted the research on wild dolphins.
He said: "We captured wild dolphins using nets when they came near the shore.
"Then in the shallow water we recorded their whistles before synthesising them on a computer so that we had a computer voice of a dolphin. Then we played it back to the dolphins and we found they responded. This showed us that the dolphins know each other's signature whistle instead of just the voice. I think it is a very exciting discovery because it means that these animals have evolved the same abilities as humans. Now we know they have labels for each other like we do."
The research was conducted in Sarasota Bay off Florida's west coast.
The findings are published in the US journal the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

Amazing stuff, huh?
Do you think Flipper's name was really "screeeeeeee"? Sorry, had to say it.
Just as long as they don't believe in supernatural beings, they'll be just fine.
I personally think he was called skikaaaa. But that's just my belief. :)
Who knows they may even believe in gods. Maybe that's why they like us and want to spend time with us? We may be gods in their eyes. :P
This kind of information is fascinating to me. I remember watching a program on the Humpback whales and how they "talk" to each other underwater. It would be an interesting job to have to study the communications between sea mammals.
