YES :!: :!: :!: It's humans, Homo sapiens! I picked this one since I thought it would be harder to get. I thought it would be the last one everyone would consider. At first I thought it would be easier than I thought, since you were getting so many right answers, but just when it seemed all spelled out I guess it really wasn't so simple. Oh well, congratulations February Beetle, it's your turn now! :D
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Not really. I've almost exhausted my knowledge of mollusks. :( I'd better do some research and come back with more. 8)

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
