If I am a beast, then I am accountable to nothing but "instinct" and my behavior is excused.
Codswallop. I know of no rational biologist who would suggest that the placement of homo sapiens sapiens in kingdom Animalia in any way excuses or justifies any kind of behaviour.
Even if this were true (and it is not), it would have no bearing on the validity of the claim that humans are animals. You are appealing to consequence and wishful thinking. You are not making a rational argument to show that humans are not animals.
