Quote# 93855

bacteria may, like a fetus, have a heartbeat, but a fetus actually develops into a breathing, talking, living person. There's a HUGE difference between a human and a plant. Humans live, make descisions, interact with others, and do so much more than an actual plant. Plants have their uses a well, but they are in nonways as amazing or complex as a human life. So yes, fetuses and plants have heartbeats, but human lives have so much more value and impact than plant lives.

More like auto-didact with only his behind as a reference point.

Bacteria and plants (as far as i'm aware) don't have hearts. Those are kind of necessary for heartbeats. See the relationship there? Heart is to heartbeat as drum is to drumbeat.

Now i know you are going to say that this elevates the fetus above the others, blah blah blah. But you've already forfeited the argument by being so wrong that nobody takes you seriously

I think before this person tries to write a novel, they should focus on learning to read.

This just can't be real... It has to be sarcasm, satire or something! Even schoolchildren should know better...

Er. Do they think bacteria are plants...? Without plantlife and bacteria humans couldn't have come into existence. Other lifeforms on earth wouldn't exist either, so... What has more value and impact on the planet, really?

And, seriously, people have no issue with cloroxing the hell out of microorganisms they find on their kitchen counter. Don't really see how an embryo is any different.

"Heart is to heartbeat as drum is to drumbeat."
Bad example:

How did this person go from bacteria to plants so quickly? I didn't even see the transition between topics.

Here's a top, just as you should never start talking about the Big Bang Theory in the middle of a conversational about evolutionary theory, you also should not start talking about plants in the middle of a conversation about bacteria. When you switch to a topic unrelated to the one you started with, it makes your conversation even more confusing.

Right is wrong. Slavery is freedom. Pi equals three. Squares have five corners. Bacteria and plants have hearts. Therefore abortion is wrong.

This is the result of homeschooling.

You act as if ignorance and stupidity are virtues.

Plants aren't complex and amazing? Let's see you manufacture food from sunlight.

Aside from bacteria that can live off chemical or geothermal processes, there is no other form of life that can manufacture their own energy. Without them the vast majority of life on the planet (including humans) would perish.

So yeah, plants are kind of important.

@UHM: Drum machines totally count as drums.

(they're better anyway :p)

I think you're "misunderestimating" homeschoolers and ivy league graduates.

4/20/2013 5:21:12 AM


So you think bacteria are plants and that even though they have no hearts, they somehow manage to maintain a heartbeat? In an alternate universe, perhaps.

Doubting Thomas

How can bacteria or plants have heartbeats when they don't have hearts? Is today "don't use your brain day?"

We SOOOOOO need a tag system. You have no clue how much I wish this quote was an article on TV Tropes so I could write: "you fail biology forever" in a little list underneath it.

You should check this stuff on google before you post it. It would keep people from thinking you are a retard and your religion is a religion for retards.

Single-celled organisms literally have no heart. In fact, it's animals (including us) that do. Bacteria have no blood because they only have one cell. We mammals do because we're complex organisms that have loads of cells that need oxygen.

I saw a jar of artichoke hearts in the supermarket so I'm sure you're on to something here.

4/20/2013 8:30:55 AM


So bacteria are plants and have heartbeats?

I would like to see how IlMioLibro would do on "Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader".

4/20/2013 8:51:01 AM

there is an article on this site!!! get to it!

4/20/2013 9:45:07 AM


Starting with the most basic fact, in order to HAVE a heartbeat you must HAVE a HEART.

"...human lives have so much more value and impact than plant lives."

But you are evidence to the contrary.

Yes, plants have heartbeats, but they're very faint.
