That hardly answers the question about whether plants are life or not.

I have previously answered your question to no avail.

We've already answered your 'question', you just don't want to hear the answer.

A human being and a Banana Tree has a 60% genetic match.

So yes, planets are life as they are made up of DNA also.

I've been waiting since last Thursday for this to become available to the public on the internet:

Smarty Plants

The Nature of Things is hosted by iconic Canadian biologist and TV personality David Suzuki. I think it addresses some of the deepest misunderstandings humans have about plants. Misunderstandings about abilities in plants, I might point out, that druids have known about for thousands of years. And Nick, it's a TV show so you don't have to read a long and boring article on the topic
