If humans didn't have tech, would we still be considered APEX predators?

I hate this type of hypothetical! If we didn't develop ways of survival we obviously would be extinct .. and just to clear things up technology is a way and means of survival

^Oh okay. I interpreted it as us in 2010 as we are now being stripped of all tools and technology.

That's like asking if Tigers didn't have claws and teeth, would that make them great predators.

No, I'm saying it's a part of what makes us humans.


Even if I took away your guns, you would still need to make tools to hunt with. Humans are not physically equipped to run down and kill prey.

We have wimpy fingernails and teeth....this is the truth. Most humans cannot wrestles down a buffalo and suffocate them by biting down on their trachea.

Dude, it's our brains that put us at the top. Obviously with our brains came technology and all the other stuff.

Lemme put it this way, I'm a pretty big/physical guy......There are very few prey I could chase down, wrestle down and kill without tools.


What am I gonna do, scratch the hell out of it and snap it's neck.

if it were nature vs nature
man vs. a tiger.

man would win. our brain is natural. we'd set up a trap to kill it. maybe lure it somewhere i can rig a rock to drop on his head.
