Biologists admit that the stages of the mimivirus are NOT WELL KNOWN. They also state that little is known about the details of its replication cycle. You apparently claim to know more than this mimivirus than those who spend their time studying it.
Not really, but it's apparent that you're sourcing old dated material. They've learned a lot in the last year. J. Craig Venter, the geneticist who decoded the human genome, has made a lot of progress in this area.

I think you misunderstood my original post. I was talking about the number of any one given kind of virus. The rhinovirus for example, how many are there vs how many would be required to prove they reproduce.

The fact he is incorrect is obvious to the casual observer without using a specific number.

Reproduction occurs when a copy of something is made. Viruses reproduce, there can be no argument about that. You are just offended by the way they go about it, which oddly enough, is very similar to the way human sperm fertilize human eggs, though they seem to honor few species boundaries. I think that just makes them more flexible and probably more "fit to survive" than we are.

You emulate your hero's but maybe you pull for the wrong team when you are on the the side of the undead. Virus do straddle the definition of life, as you straddle definition of intelligent.

In other words, you have no intelligent rebuttal, so you resort to ad hominem babble. Not surprising really.

No ad hominem, just the facts.
You haven't made an intelligent statement, but like a fundie you defend it with stupid. You haven't shown any research that agrees with your premise.
Yet you say it like a person who believes in Jesus, not like the scientist who defends his ideal with evidence. Asides the fact you are an asshole who is loathed by most everyone. Including your wife.

Yeah but look what you too stealth theists have to think with.
You think because I believe in the right to kill I'm christian.
Oggah stands on extremely thin ice with his support that a virus is a life form. You both are not only ignorant but wrong as well.
Life's a bitch I'm only returning the favor to Oggah who is so quick to point out someone's Else's mistakes, but we know now that it is only some sort of arrogant poker face we see in here with a hollow ringing sound when thumped.

Read it and then go home to mommy and cry. I do now believe in anything mylan, except the power in my steel, and the bullets that rain hell on my enemies. My wits are enough to carry home with the

No, you aren't smart enough to do that. Apparently, you can not even tell the difference between "to", "two", and "too". I bet "their", "they're" and "there" gives you absolute fits as well.

Sorry you wont change the fact, that you are supporting a virus being a living thing.
Now put up the supportive information , or shut up.
Admit you're wrong and move on...

Viruses are living because:

They have genetic material either DNA or RNA
They make transcribe and translate these genetic material.
They have a protein coat which is again encoded by its own genetic material and is an analog to cell membrane.
They reproduce and mutate.
They adapt themselves to the environment
They quickly evolve by mutation to overcome unfavorable conditions.
They consume host lifeforms (they eat)
They grow in number (reproduction again)

I'm starting to repeat myself so I'll stop there.

The mimivirus IS a life form. That's what makes it so incredible. Your "interpretation" doesn't effect the truth.

Good now support this contention with real research.
Because we don't believe you...sorry.
It doesn't matter mylan if the research is 50 years old , if it is still the consensus of science. Now you prove that wrong and you have done something other than fundieisim .
