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.

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

You understand that homosexuality is simply one sexual identity from Western culture, right?
I understand that earlier than now.
Can adults of the sex reproduce or procreate?

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.

Why not?

Do you think that procreation only happens within the boundaries of marriage?]

May I ask you a side question?

Do you know what a gene is?

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.
A battery does not have life. A car engine does not have life.

Unless you want to redefine life in a way that makes our current definitions utterly useless.

In that case, all you are doing is replacing the word "life" with the word "stuff."

Sure...batteries have stuff. Engines have stuff, just like turtles have stuff. So do eggs and ipods and tables. All these things...lots of stuff.

See? Suddenly you've made the word life as useless as the word stuff. Now we can't do anything with it.

When you play these silly word games, you remove the ability of science to understand the universe around us. Biology ceases to have meaning. That's why we call these kind of logical games "sophistry" or "pedantry." They result in an inability to understand the phenomena around us - they reduce our ability to produce new knowledge and are therefore damaging.

Build knowledge, don't attack it.

There is only one way to have sex and not sin. The marriage bed is the only place that is not unclean or dirty and defiled in the sight of God.

The Darwin cult would like to call every person who believes in the God of the Bible crazy. The truth will prevail.
