I should say not.
It is obvious from the title of the thread that the discussion is on evolution of one species from another.
Discussing the evolution of something else constitutes nothing more than redefining the term.
If you want to talk about evolution of hair styles, clothing styles, or musical styles, then start another thread.
There are two well-known novels entitled The Invisible Man.
One is by H. G. Wells, the other is by Ralph Ellison.
It would be very rude to barge into a discussion of one novel and comment on the other.
The reason why we start talking about abiogenesis and all that stuff is to educate bible literalists and provide other explanations of how life started other than what the bible says. And I don't see anything wrong with getting to know the posters in the forums when we talk about personal matters. It actually helps better understand where they are coming from.

Who is "they"?
I thought some gays were Black and some were White.
But the Negroes are not whites either.
Gay rights or perversions?
What then, is the essence of procreation or reproduction?

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.

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

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).

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

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.
