Rocks in solid form are pretty inert though, the inside of the earth isn't inert, its got liquid rock (blood) and magnetic fields (nervous system). Alright, I'll shut up.
And rivers which are obviously the urinary tract.

perhaps they are alive- just very very slow if they are alive- this poses some vary serious issues for vegetarians- we will soon have to stop using cut stone as it would be cruelty to rocks. making glass would likewise be considered to be wrong :rolleyes:
And breathing would also be a problem

You're restricting yourselves to thinking about life in the conventional sense though! Does life have to breath oxygen and eat McDonalds?
Nono, for vegetarians/vegans things like breathing and urinating would be difficult - pissing on something alive

on the subject of vegetarianism- there was a study a couple of months/years back which indicated that plants might be sentient.

Are you sure it wasn't just 'more sentient than vegetarians'?
:eek:

I'm so insulted

Well vegetarianism has nothing to do with things being 'alive' as they eat vegetables which are alive, the heartless buggers!
I know- we are indeed an evil breed

What about those people who only eat fruit or vegetables that have died in certain ways, like falling off the tree

Animals. That's why God made them out of meat.
yes- but to raise enough meat to feed one person, the animal has to consume more plants then would be consumed if the person just ate them directly- so it is better for the plants if the world's population went veggie

Not really, I was thinking about it the other day and it made sense in a vague kind of way, I just didn't explain it properly. I sometimes like to try and think about things in a new way as we seem to get stuck in preconceptions, like life - we're always assuming it has to be carbon based and needs water, but why?
Because weve never found one that doesnt

well water is generally used as it is pretty unreactive and can act as a solvent, but at other temperatures/pressures other substances could definately be used. why is carbon generally assumed to be necessary for life? is it because it is so abundant or because it can take many different forms with different properties?

We've never found one that wasn't two years from our face! Anyway, the real point is that if everything is matter, why are some things 'alive' and others not? A lump of rock is more alive than some people I know!
a lump of rock is more alive than most people who are already dead

I don't know, I've stopped reading scientific stuff, it clouds my brain with facts when I want it full of dreamy nonsense.
well working on the basis that something necessary for life would probably be not very reactive, can be used as a solvent/is vesatile and is abundant, carbon fits the bill. potassium and oil would also work- but i doubt they would form a basis for life

The usual second choice is silicon - very similar to carbon chemically.
