What does it mean to be alive?

It means that I can move, think, and do. It means that I am self-aware as well as aware of others.


So plants, which do not think, aren't alive? Why does the specialness of god regarding life only refer to thinking things?

Thank you for your submission to Science. Your paper was reviewed by a jury of seventh graders so that they could look for balance and to allow them to make up their own minds. We are sorry to say that they found your paper "bogus," specifically describing the section on the laboratory work "boring." We regret that we will be unable to publish your work at this time.

Minds are like parachutes. Just because you've lost yours doesn't mean you can use mine.

Re: What The Story Says
But Phat, what does that mean with regard to the question, "Jesus is alive"?

What does it mean to be "alive"? Your definition excluded plants. But then you say that they are alive.
