Where does Islam say what distinguishes man from the rest?

http://www.patheos.com/Library/Islam/Beliefs/Human...

On this webpage, it says:

"Islam teaches that God [...] separated us from the rest of creation by giving us three divine gifts: intelligence to distinguish the true from the false, a will that can freely choose between them, and the power of speech to worship."

Is this correct? And if so, where exactly does Islam teach that? For example, does it say so in the Qur'an, and if so, where? I'm especially interested in the first gift.

Update:

If you weren't called Zombie Reagan I would report you.

    All we need to do is observe the world around us to come to that conclusion. Atheists have come to that conclusion without the God factor. It is quite clear to nearly everyone that human beings are a unique creation/species because of our intellect.

    There are also Hadiths that tell us not to behave like animals, proving that Islam views us as separate.
