A "dead" fire is the absence of fire.
A dead star is the absence of what makes it a star ... light.
ALL you have proven is that those new terms simply say that it is NO LONGER a star.
Do you wish to continue this word mincing or are you mature enough to cede your point?
No you are incorrect, dead means there is no functioning processes .
Live , does not require it to be in the visible spectrum of light.
It only require that there IS a process in progress.

Fart.
So explain how that came to precede science by 2,000 years without using a distorted diversion.

However, your diversion only brings another quandary to surface: The prolific presence of water in the universe predicted in the very first verses of the Bible.

Let’s talk about you.

You’re from a dysfunctional family. I’m talking excessive dysfunctional. Not a whole lot of love and appreciation in your environment but more towards the abusive side. Your biological parents were probably successful people as far as material things go.

You were raised up not being very social. Your social skills always resulted in conflict. So you became withdrawn more towards narcissistic and spastic. You probably have a higher than normal IQ but it’s doubtful you completed high school or any further education.

I think illegal drugs capped your success if you were ever bound for any. I think you have been in lots of trouble over the years with the law. It’s doubtful that you ever had a successful relationship.

Whatever you did to make a living if you have ever worked wasn’t based on a lot of interaction with the general public. I believe you have been terminated from several jobs for being the opposite of a stellar employee.

If two words could describe you that would be “rebellion” and “stubbornness.” You have a lot of pinned up anger and that’s why you’re here. Because you feel the need to hate someone or something. You don’t believe in God but yet you hate him and anything associated with him. This passion of hate helps you so you think.

If such things are to be called "birth defects", then the entirety of the evolution argument is a study of the theory of birth defects. In that case, those births should not be called "defects" at all, but rather the normal progression of evolution.
So who really is "normal" anyway, when it comes to evolution ... the "normal", or the "abnormal"?
Does that make one abnormally normal, or normally abnormal?
Honey, you are confusing the general process of mutation in evolution with those mutations that are pointless or even harmful (defects).

On a spiritual level, I base the term on the effect of the Fall on our physical being. Our sexual makeup is certainly not immune. In fact, I would speculate that we all display some measure of sexual defect. I certainly do.
I understand we are uncomfortable with the term defect. Especially in relation to sexual orientation and identity in this period of time where political correctness overrules reality. I have a tendency to use a verbal bat to break through the crust of those dangerous lies.
Your 'defect' has nothing to do with your body ....It's your mind you're too smart not to know how to use the word "tack"

Well then, if they are dead, they are no longer a star, but just a mass, a black hole, a minor planet, or perhaps asteroid fragments.
We do not call what does not emit light, "stars". Do we?
I say your answer is lacking. If it is a "star" it is also said to be alive. Correct?
ROCCO interjects at this moment:

If you will look at the post above which started this discussion, you will see that number four was injecting a "witticism" - that actors/actresses/celebrities are alive.

Except for the dead ones, of course.

Amazing, isn't it, how the slightest little bit of inattention can take something so far off course. It's particularly true when it comes to discussions of the bible.

But you are correct, while a star can be alive, it is not a life. Only a "live" process.

Nonsense, as what you wrote does not define "life" for a star.
In order for it to be a star, light being emitted is required. That fact, in and of itself, is what denotes it as a star.
You have already called non-emitting stars, "dead" stars, and other terms which counter your current claim.

"Live , does not require it to be in the visible spectrum of light."
When the subject in question is a star, it certainly does require visibility in order to be called a star ... not a "live" star. Anything less than emitting light from that particular celestial body, reclassifies it as something else, but not a star.

Yeah you're stupid like that. Sorry plain and simple, dead means no process.
Process does not require visibility in visible light. So in your terms all battery's are dead, you cant see visibly whether that battery is dead or not can you?> It will take more than your earthly eyes to determine that.

Go ahead and be even more stupid....

Incorrect. You missed the whole point.
What one calls "mutation" another calls "defect". What is "normal" for one, is "abnormal" for another.
Since mankind,(assuming you are human) does not know how it all came to be, one of the most common mistakes he makes in his anthropological exploits, is attempting to think as a prehistoric entity, with a modern "educated" mind. You are bathed in modern comforts and totally removed from the environment which wrought those "mutations" in the first place.
You and I are certainly no adequate judge of what is "normal", "mutation", or "defect" in the grand scheme of things simply because you and I have no real truth or concept of what that grand scheme is.
Example; Your mind set type folks call Down's Syndrome a "defect", when those people with Down's Syndrome are THE most forgiving, loving, accepting, and nurturing people out there. They are ALL the things you folks say are lacking in the "Christians".
You are mistaken in your assumption.
