Debate and discussion of any biological questions not pertaining to a particular topic.
Monera small, simple single prokaryotic cell (nucleus is not enclosed by a membrane); some form chains or mats absorb food bacteria, blue-green algae, and spirochetes
Protista large, single eukaryotic cell (nucleus is enclosed by a membrane); some form chains or colonies absorb, ingest, and/or photosynthesize food protozoans and algae of various types
Fungi multicellular filamentous form with specialized eukaryotic cells absorb food funguses, molds, mushrooms, yeasts, mildews, and smuts
Plantae multicellular form with specialized eukaryotic cells; do not have their own means of locomotion photosynthesize food mosses, ferns, woody and non-woody flowering plants
Animalia multicellular form with specialized eukaryotic cells; have their own means of locomotion ingest food sponges, worms, insects, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals
Monera is divided into Eubacteria and Archea actually.. It's not one kingdom any more

No, six. Archaea, Eubacteria, Protista, Fungi, Plantae, and Animalia. The older list you described had only five kingdoms.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Monera is still used. It is a new division, some scientist still find it useless.
It matters not how strait the gate
How charged with punishment the scroll

Monera is still used because not all teachers read Bergey's. even if they find it useless they should use since it is the current clasification, it's like saying protozoans are animals cause they used to be included into Animalia a few decades ago.
And i bet there are no microbiology professors who don't use the clasification
Some splitters even list eleven kingdoms or is that kingdae.........maybe now with the advent of DNA analysis there may be forty kingdoms identified.....or maybe just ONE. Is classification still based on structural characteristics?
My kingdom for a horse.
