Re: Life
The problem is "LIFE" is a human construct subject to variable definition. We can tell the difference between rocks and frogs, for sure, but in the finer details like between viruses and prions, there will be disagreement.
For my own purposes, I use complex chemistry in continuous action as one definition which is wholly inadequate, but I like it none the less.
BTW, there is no real difference between a creationist and an IDist. They are exactly the same thing except that one wears a false mustache to try and hide its identity. For the biblical creationists the "Life" thing is rather easy. It is the woo-majik their version of a god breathes into clay figurines. Get breathed on, you're a frog. Don't get breathed on, you're a rock. Simple.

Re: Life
Hi wayforward. Welcome to EvC.
You hit the "reply" button on my message 8. Note that Fiver's message 1 also has a "reply" button.
It can be a bit confusing for a newbie but in this forum you can reply to any specific individual message within the thread by hitting the "reply" button on that specific message.
Welcome, again.
