comment Why do carnivores evolve?
@WYSIWYG What is there to cite about "sometimes you live in a place where you can't find many plants to eat"?

comment Would urination continue after death?
Many organs remain intact (and "alive" in that they can be transplanted) for minutes after brain death.

comment Follow-up to The Red Queen by Matt Ridley?
I haven't read the book, but in the context of parasite-host co-evolution, RQH-style thinking is very common.

Death of who? The person? The brain? Or the kidney?

comment Are there any non-mammalian species known that lactate?
The classical definition of a mammal includes production of milk (hence the name). Your question is a bit circular unless you specify your definition of a mammal.

comment Are mitochondria dead?
Does it really matter why some Youtuber decided they are alive or not? Clearly an argument can be made for them being alive (have DNA, replicate, process chemicals) and not being alive (cannot survive very long outside cells, not very complex) and it comes down to an arbitrary distinction. It's an irrelevant concern, nothing about your (or anyone's) life would change if the Czar of Science decreed one way or another.
