I need incorporate bacteria ONLY if I believe in evolution, which I do not. This is the standard textbook version of life, which I adhere to. Viruses are non-living because they are unable to metabolise on their own. They need a host. So basically, an organism that is able to metabolise on their own.

You lost me in there somewhere.

Can bacteria "metabolize on their own?" Synechococcus, for example?

I've never seen a virus that was a bacterium, even on the evening shift.
