I define life as a system avoiding equilibrium. A virus sets up no concentration gradients, etc., and therefore is not alive. However, by my definition the atmosphere is alive, which a lot of people here probably wouldn't agree with (including myself).

Ebola is way smarter than us. We don't know how it gets into cells. It becomes more virulent with each generation. It easily spreads between species.

There is no preparing a city for an Ebola outbreak, just prevention.

Re: God vs Evolution

I believe God created the universe and everything in it. And that evolution is an incorrect 'THEORY' made by the human race to neglect God. I want your argument about why you believe that human existence is a freak accident or if we were created for a purpose. I support your right to believe that G...

The affect is not attributed to any chemical, or a mixture of chemicals. No chemicals were isolated, identified, or characterized in her studies. Her study supported what almost every adult woman already knows, and shed no new light on the topic. In general, studies of this nature are to be ignored....

There is no evidence for human pheromones. First, you must show that they exist. Then, you can characterize them.

There is a cult of scientists who assume pheromones, but if you read carefully, you will see that they admit my first paragraph is true.

The reason you can't find anything on human pheromones is because no one has isolated a human pheromone, much less characterize it. There is no evidence that human pheromones exist. The VNO is either absent or not wired in the majority of humans. Repeat: there is no evidence for human pheromones. Th...

No, your teacher is incorrect. I can taste gas, solid, and liquid. The mechanism of taste is insanely complicated, and anyone who tells you they understand how the sense of taste works is confused or a liar.

Just roll with it, your teacher is right until you leave the class.

This question has no answer. Explanation: nothing is toxic to DNA, its just a polymer. You need at least two polymers to make a cell, maybe three.

Well, maybe you should try asking a gay person instead of asserting you know their thought processes. Also, be careful when describing another individual's development as having problems, being improper, etc. If the Nazis won, then everyone with dark hair would have a development problem. Its just d...

The atmosphere is dynamic. Photosynthesis supports concentration gradients that we rely on. Once carbon is removed from the atmosphere, rest assured, it will eventually find its way back. Trees burn oxygen and release CO2, too. Possibly, by dieing the tree makes room for another individual who will ...
