Proof of Life

Scientists say that a virus is not alive because it does not display the criteria for life, outside of a living host.

  1. It doesn’t die when outside a living host, say when it is in soil or water–it merely goes dormant.
  2. It doesn’t exchange nutrients with it’s environment when outside the host. It doesn’t have the POTENTIAL to exchange nutrients with it’s environment, while outside the host.
  3. It doesn’t reproduce while outside the host.
  4. The virus is not self mobile while outside of the host.
