The results of that could, and probably will be, catastrophic. We'll have to hope for our future relatives that humans are not dumb enough to engineer a way to allow humans to live forever. Or, if they do, they don't use it in a bad way.

Not that that couldn't be a reason, but even the sun can't live forever.

Now that there's a fascinatin' question.

Given that the self-cloning Pando colony of Quaking Aspen (Populus tremoloides) in Utah is 80,000 years old, I cannot imagine anything short of catastrophic climate change killing it off...

Fire certainly won't do it - they depend on fire.

Well by living here, we are talking about continuing on in the same process forever.
In that respect the sun is alive with the reactions that drive it's existence, consequently it being a major requirement for a tree to live, so you see if the life of a star is not eternal.
Then the tree's life which is forever dependent on the sun , can't possibly live forever.
But more importantly in cosmology we do see stars as either alive, or dead in their processes.

Very smart of you. So given the right conditions, trees have something in their makeup that would let them live for ever if the right conditions were set.

Next I am moving nothing, you are lying and this very thread proves it, do you really think that everyone is a stupid as you?
I agree with you 100% with your “new” claim that England is part of Great Britain and that very fact means that people born in England are British. In exactly the same way that people born in Wales are British. Just ask any “English” or “Welsh” person to read their nationality from their passport or ask where their driving licence was issued.
Here are a couple of hints
Passport, Nationality : British Citizen
United Kingdom Driving Licence, issued “United Kingdom of Great Britain”
You are clueless, you make up rules up to suit you own prejudices and then argue black is white when the real rules do not actually match your guesses. When the facts are proven even beyond the ability of you stupidity to ignore then you move the goalpost to suit a new rule you have made up.
It’s really quite pathetic and a total waste of time. Your deliberate ignorance explains why you choose to troll rather than to admit defeat in the evolution vs creation argument.
Until you understand that England is the only true English nation in Britain and the UK, i will not relent. Go on with your trash.

And again, no arguments about England as a unit under Britain, but its inhabitants are also known as the English. This is used to differentiate other British nationals that are not English or from England.

Perhaps you can explain to me how the shroud's face and back of the head are joined without any room for the top of the skull? And why doesn't the height of the figure match what biblical scholars believe Jesus' height was, based on available descriptions, ethnicity and presumed diet?
That is your opinion. Jesus Christ existed as a man, and he is still very much in existence. To date.

Hmm.

The Amish and Mennonites here in the US refer to anyone who doesn't speak Pennsylvania Dutch as "The English". Even me.

Which kinda scuppers your notion that the English are "solely English".

One realizes that English is your second language, Chuck, but that's no excuse. It's my second, too.

Forever is a long time. You can say it, but you can't observe it or test it. We can observe how long something has lived and predict that it would continue living as long as the environmental conditions and its particular biological conditions persist.

The scripture of Genesis 3:22 comes to my mind in this topic. And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

Your opinion is noted. Jesus was a man and he exists in the same way that Homer or Lao Tzu still exist. Anything beyond that is your superstition.

Well, can't you see that the tree of life that was in the garden must have had the ability to live for ever, because if Adam and Eve were allowed to eat of it, they would have been able to live for ever.

What garden, what tree, what ability and Adam and Eve who?

You might just as well be addressing the actualities of Peter Pan and Never Never Land as addressing the actualities of Genesis.

Tell your self that. English is native to England first, before any other nation in Britain and the world. Amish or the others were Germans who later became German Americans or simply Americans. So, back off.
