Our brain is like a computer. It has electrical synapses for electrical activity that are released between neurons.
The brain has very few gap junctions. It mostly uses ionic synapses.

You can't really have life without both matter and energy.

Life comes from energy. So technically everything in the universe has life. But it is not alive in terms of biology.
Your logic is a bit off on this one.

You did:

Life comes from Energy (A comes from B)
then..."technically everything..." (Since everything in the universe has B, it must also have A)

That's your logical error. Just 'cause life comes from energy and the sun produces energy does not equate life with the sun.

It's like you're arguing this:

Milk is white

My microwave is white.

My microwave is therefore milk.

You understand that homosexuality is simply one sexual identity from Western culture, right?

But I did mention that it depends on how you define "life"

a battery has life, a car engine has life, an equipment has life, etc.

Everything in the universe has life. A star dies and a star is born. But we don't define this life in biological terms.

Again it depends on how you define life.

There is energy that creates life that takes the form of a matter and energy that creates life that takes the form of something we don't call matter. lol

Life as we define it is just in the physical form that breathes. But I'm going beyond this definition.

But KK mentioned 'electricity' and that is what I compared the brain's capability for electrical activity to. I am aware of others such as chemical synapses in the neurotransmitters.

Systems created reproduction after the kind in living things. Living things are patterned after their own kind. Repeating cyclic mechanisms such as pumping elements are responsible for maintaining life. All living things have pumps. Life unfolds following seedlike patterns of former things. Life did not branch out and become a varity from a common thing, it began in varity and then reproduced after certain kinds. Systems which cycle following patterns, is the way life works and the timing and pace of these systems was in the self adjusting patterned arrangement from the beginning and Creation of life on earth.

Yes. Lots of gay men are fathers, why would you think that they could not reproduce?
For men(man) to men(man) marrying each other, there can never be procreation.

Yes brother, and we Christians know that our Creator will never put such a union together and give his blessings. it is a delusion of the flesh and a perversion in the sight of God. God bless you.

I guarantee to you, sir, that any adults who do reproduce have, in fact, a sex.

Uh...no, no, this one's a universal. There is no life that does not have both matter and energy.

We can do a quick test, if you like. For example, take spinach. Check, matter. Check, energy.

Smaller, you say? Ok, take bacteria. Check, matter. Check, energy.

Smaller? Ok, take viruses. Check, matter. Check, energy.

Smaller still? Ok, prions. Check, matter. Check energy.

That's about as small as we can get for life.

You want to demonstrate there is life without matter or without energy? Sure...give us some evidence, please.

Hidingfromyou, this question is for you.
As long as they have functioning genitalia, they can reproduce. I can't imagine why you would think they cannot.

Let me just jump ahead a bit...Yes, almost all primate species have demonstrated same sex sexual behavior, along with many, many other species.
