Quote# 3372

Plants are not flesh. They do not breathe as we do. They do not breathe what we do. And it isn't beside the point. It is the point. God himself does not call a plant a creature. There is no reason for you to.

I thought a \"creature\" meant a living thing that is created, or something along those lines. Are we saying plants aren't alive, or that God didn't create them?

See, I always used the word "creature" to refer to things found in the kingdom Animalia.
"They do not breathe what we do"
He's correct. The primary gas of animal respiration is O2, with plants, it's usually CO2.
I don't know if they "breathe as we do" because there really isn't a consistent way to breathe in the group of creatures.

Actually plants breathe oxygen and expel carbon dioxide just like humans. It's during photosynthesis that they do the opposite.
