The Bible doesn't consider plants to be living, so I don't either.

The bible dosen't consider women, gays, and other people groups as equal humans. I guess you don't either right?

By living, do you mean breath of life? Honestly, I'm pretty sure the bible does describe plants as living. In one case Jesus killed a fig tree -can't kill something that isn't alive.

If you had a living brain cell in your head, you'd be dangerous.

"The Bible doesn't consider plants to be living, so I don't either."
See, that's the trouble with believing everything you read in bronze age documents. Turns out they're wrong on occasion. Who knew, right?

Where does the Bible make this claim?

Care to cite that verse? Didn't think so.

Didn't Moses once converse with a bush? ;-) Sounds alive to me.

"All things share the same breath;
the beast, the tree, the man.
The air shares its spirit with
all the life it supports."
The native Americans were quite wise. They knew nothing of Christianity until it was forced on them.

The Bible doesn't consider plants to be living *. From this you conclude:
a) plants aren't living
b) the Bible was written by ignorant humans rather than God.
Guess which one fundies choose ...
* assuming, ad arguendo, that this is actually true ...

One's views on a subject do not effect the facts.

I usurped god.
Plants are capable of reproduction, with is the fundamental characteristic of life. They also have all of the other characteristics of life. Thus, they are very much alive.
Consciousness does not define life. If it did, then many of the lower animals, including insects, reptiles, amphibians, etc. wouldn't be 'alive'.
You can object all you want, but plants are alive. Neither you nor the bible can disprove that.

The bible also doesn't mention the internet, so obviously it doesn't exist. So GTFO.

The bible doesn't consider electricity, oxygen, the internet real, so you shouldn't either.

You're an idiot.

This amount of stupid is so dense that it has the potential to become a singularity.
8/11/2008 1:29:18 AM
I threw up last night. I then scrawled "morons are not alive" on the wall with my own vomit. Therefore, you are not alive.

If that's the kid who was supposed to water my plants last time we went away on a trip, that would account for an awful lot.
No, dear, you're not getting the second half of the money by quoting Bible at me...
8/11/2008 2:24:18 AM
This has got to be one of the dumbest things I have ever heard....
8/11/2008 2:57:45 AM
This amount of stupid is like a knife in the back.
8/11/2008 3:26:32 AM
Ouch. There goes your credibility.
(Also, what Feminazi said.)
