comment Why do we exhale after we hold our breath?
you breathe in air, which contains that necessary thing, oxygen. and you breath out that same air, just then a bit of the oxygen has been combined with a carbon atom. the cells throughout the body take o2 and give back co2, its just that the lungs take care of extracting that necessary o2 out of the air for them.

O2->CO2 is what the lungs do with the air you give them.

The lungs are not consuming the air as such, they are just adding a Carbon element to the O2 in it.

comment Are there any viruses or bacteria which have evolved to withstand higher temperatures due to fever
There are bacteria that live in hotsprings, for them 100c is comfortable.

comment Refutation of Darwin's Random Evolution Theory
At some point is a different matter. The question is about the origin of life. If you want to have a discussion about the process after life has originated then that should be in a different thread.

No but molecules that create copies of themselves which inherit their characteristics are. And that is all that is necessary for first life.

comment Refutation of Darwin's Random Evolution Theory
I am pointing out that this so-called refutation is flawed as it assumes that first life must be someting complex. As for the continued evolution of life you can start a different thread.

comment Does body temperature affect human lifespan?
"Since humans are not built to withstand extremely low temperatures, it is likely that lowering the core body temperature to 30C will cause it to have organ impairment, causing organ failure, followed by death." Are you sure about that? The Icelander who swam for 6 hours in the 5c ocean, surely had a core temperature below 30c, and he was fine.

I agree though that if the body is constantly trying to raise the temperature then that should increase metabolic processes and thus probably shorten lifespan. But if the brain could be fooled into thinking this lower temperature is the nice new norm..

Another argument for cold-induced longevity is that I know a person who's been working at the ER for decades, and she says people who die in extreme circumstances, such as drowning in sub zero water, can be brought back after unbelievably long amounts of time with far less damage than when in normal temperatures. Indicating the temperature is slowing things down.

I don't have an exact definition at hand but humans and frogs are what I would call advanced. I might as well rephrase and say 'humans and frogs and such animals' instead of 'advanced'. The point would remain the same.

So advanced animals seem to be really capable of cooling.

And frogs are relatively advanced animals, there are those who can just freeze in the autumn and thaw back in the spring: youtube.com/watch?v=Fjr3A_kfspM

A boat sank close to Icelandic shores in march 1984, all died but one who managed to swim to land, took him five hours and the ocean was around 4C. So there are people who can tolerate unbelievable drops in body temperature and suffer no long term harm.

Epic, so u just put them in the fridge like food u want to last longer? How much longer do they live at 18c compared to 25c?

okey then, 32. Could even keep them a bit warmer in the beginning.
