Well do you think they supernaturally appear or what? Do you think, maybe....they were reproduced. Therefore they are alive?
But none of them are identical to each other. They are similar, true, but thats not really a rule is it?
So you have a queen bee producing clearly different drone bees which are also different from each other. You can't say that they were REproduced, simply... "produced." So how would you differentiate that process from for instance, my shoe making several prints in the mud? Or would you?
