Not really. Just because energy is required for life does not mean that everything that has energy is life.

What then is the essence of man, woman, children and procreation?
A big question to/ for homosexuals( gays) world wide...
What if I said that blacks are human, but that the big difference is that they have different colored skin? That's the big question for blacks worldwide - why are they so perverted as to have black skin, and what is the true essence of man?(being white, duh).

<quoted text>Charles, you are really dumb. Again, if you could not glean from my comment how I feel about both civil rights for blacks and civil rights for gays, then you are a lost cause. And you continue to imply that gay people are not human beings, which is kind of despicable.
Likewise. Try to be practical in your approaches.

Yes. Lots of gay men are fathers, why would you think that they could not reproduce?

The brain has very few gap junctions. It mostly uses ionic synapses.

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

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.

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.

For men(man) to men(man) marrying each other, there can never be procreation.

Can adults of the sex reproduce or procreate?
