FTF, I hope that one person's comments do not reflect on the rest of us.

Btw, welcome!

That's fine. I fully realize I can be a real asshole when I want to be. But I don't typically lash out at someone for attempting to aid me, even if they misunderstand my meaning entirely.

I apologize for coming across as lecturing anyone. I believe you were asking the opinions of this community which i have recently joined. I enjoy submersing myself into these on-the-edge discussions. I learn alot from other people and the way they think...

Surely you can tell the difference between a computer and a plant? I never said that plants have a memory from another life, They have a genetic memory for lack of better wording... Computers do not evolve on their own due to the "Memory" they have plants and animals do... I consider plants and animals to be living "things" due to their genetic make-up as you should already have discovered.

I understand many people thinking others are being rude... We are all adults here right? Some topics can get heated due to conflict in interest and philosophy thats why this community exists right? Ripping eachothers heads off about the things they say in debate or discussion would be ignorant to say the least. I believe taking things to personally may be the major fault in this topic of discussion. Anyways i was just trying to make for more intellectual conversation about your abstract question. If I hurt your feelings or come across as rude then let me know... I believe if anyone should be here in this community it should be the people who can handle the discussions in which i believe it welcomes...

Please correct me if anyone doesn't believe these things above to be true!

Nick the irony is in your very own signature...

You can rest assured that my feelings will never be compromised by any such discussions. Don't hesitate to say vulgar, unprofessional, etc things to me in the heat of a discussion because you will be able to enjoy the heat from that fire as well =P

But to say that plants are actually life strikes me as rather odd.

If they discovered that there was another planet that was covered in trees, flowers and whatever, I'd be like... big deal... until they'd found the first animal. Once they'd discovered an animal, then I'd truly feel that we aren't alone in this universe, even if it was a mere insect, or mosquito.

Trees wouldn't make me feel that we had company elsewhere in the universe.

What do people think?
Plants are life, although I would only consider us no alone in the universe if they found an intelligent being somewhere else in the universe.

I'd be truly amazed if a mosquito was discovered. It would mean that there was a brain somewhere else, thinking and feeling and reacting, however primitive those thoughts and feelings and reactions. If a forest full of oak tress was found, I'd be quite impressed, but it wouldn't have quite the same effect.

It would, in fact, not mean that.
