Is Fire A Living Thing? (Picture) by Idamond(m): 5:27pm On Sep 01, 2021
According to Biology,
life can be defined as "A distinctive characteristic of a living organism from dead organism or non-living thing, as specifically distinguished by the capacity to grow, metabolize, respond (to stimuli), adapt, and reproduce" If this is the case, would not fire be a living organism? It grows via oxidizing things around it, it grows, and it can adapt, (changing chemical composition based on what it's burning)
. Am I missing something? Because it certainly seems that fire is a basic form of life.
Any biology student in the house what's your claim?
