On the basis of science and logic.
Chemistry: All matter in this universe is composed of 100+ elements. They are NON-LIVING things.
Physics: Space is also a NON-LIVING thing.
Humans: Say a human weighs 60kg. Whatever a man is composed of, all of his body is made up of matter,thus from these 100+ elements which are all NON-LIVING things, so the man is essentially a NON-LIVING thing.
Q) Can combination of two non-living things make a living thing ? No.
If someone says yes, that means living thing is made up of
non-living things? So fundamentally there is nothing which is living
Q) Can we call the different changes, movement of the non-living things as
(What we call eating, metabolic, neural activity, growing,
reproduction etc is a change and movement of mass and energy from, one
place and form to another form and place.)
So the answer maybe NO.
But science defines a living being in similar fashion.
So what are we Humans??
LIVING BEINGS OR NON-LIVING THINGS ??
PS: Religious definitions and explanations can be kept aside for a while. Lets discuss it on the basis of Science n logic.
