you are just arguing semantics!
are you unsatisfied with the grammar of my statement? should i rather say
any entity that contains dna and rna at the same time is to be called life?
No, I'm unsatisfied that this defines (Earth) life.
Hm. Let me compose my argument...
or how about 'life:things transcribing and translating'
No. Far too vague. Lots of artificial non-living things transcribe and translate.
