I usually stay from these discussions, but I just wanted to add 2 points:
1)Is the poster anymore than a depiction of what is said by the Kuzari?
2) Is the poster about being better or different? Do you consider yourself "better" than a plant?

It's interesting to note that this original classification comes from the Kuzari with HOWEVER a different upper level: דומם, צומח, חי, מדבר, נביא.

It's relatively recent that it was changed to יהודי...

The talmud states that a gentile who studies the torah i.e the 7 noahide laws, can reach a level as high as the kohen gadol - the high priest.

A scholarly bastard
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Absolutely, even a Christian (I don't think you will get that part  :) ). You think I can get my answer now?
So there's no popular belief that not accepting the savior will merit a one-way ticket to hell?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I stand corrected.
Google was right? (BTW i don't mean bastard in a crude way, that's just the literal translation of a mamzer. It may be used as an insult, but the word itself isn't a profanity.)
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I might be wrong but I grew up OOT and I nor any of my friends ever felt that way. I think it is a Brooklyn-type school setting that had that problem. Even in my sons school in 5t,  the principal regularly speaks to the kids (and parents) about how we must treat everybody, especially the secular teachers, janitors, kitchen staff, etc. with upmost respect and has very little tolerance for kids who don't. Kids are taught that they should say good morning, thank you, etc. to everybody, even passing people on the street.
In regards to that we are chosen, higher, or whatever term you want to use, we (me, my siblings, classmates) were always taught that it means that we are held to higher standards. While 'others' might use vulgar speech, dress inappropriately, be disrespectful and so on, since we are Yidden, we don't do those stuff, speak that way, etc. It is in no way to put other people down, just to reinforce that more is expected from us.
This is for the most part how I've always been taught (in Brooklyn) and frankly some of the comments here are pretty scary...

What if the pecking order that was posted had a white person on the top tier and a black person on the second tier. Someone asks why and I say because the white person is better. What would that sound like?
