This thread is closed temporarily for Moderation as well. Please do not re-post about this until the Mentors have decided how to deal with your thread starts. I'll find Vela's post and quote it here for you in a minute.

It looks like it wasn't @vela who commented, but several others including @Nugatory have commented in your threads that we do not discuss philosophy here. That is in the PF rules, which you agreed to when you joined PF:
Greg Bernhardt said:
Philosophical discussions are permitted only at the discretion of the mentors and may be deleted or closed without warning or appeal

Also, once your thread is locked or deleted, it is against the rules to try to repost it (as you keep doing today)...
Greg Bernhardt said:
  • Reopening Locked Thread:
    Do not re-post comments from a locked thread without the explicit permission of a mentor.
  • Reposting deleted content:
    If something you have posted has been removed by a mentor, do not re-post it without explicit permission.

After some Moderation in your other thread starts that involved philosophy, this thread will also remain closed.

1. What is the reason for banning the word "life" in physics forums?

The word "life" is often considered to be a philosophical or metaphysical concept, rather than a scientific one. As such, it may not be relevant to discussions in a physics forum, which focuses on empirical evidence and mathematical models.

2. Is the word "life" completely prohibited in physics forums?

No, the word "life" is not completely banned in physics forums. It may be used in certain contexts, such as discussions on astrobiology or the origins of the universe. However, it is important to stay within the scope of the forum and use the word in a scientific manner.

3. Are there any alternatives to using the word "life" in a physics forum?

Yes, there are many alternative terms that can be used in place of "life" in a physics forum. Some examples include "biological systems," "living organisms," or "complex systems." These terms are more specific and scientifically accepted in the field of physics.

4. Can the word "life" be used in a physics forum if it is relevant to the discussion?

Yes, if the word "life" is relevant to the topic being discussed and is used in a scientific context, it may be appropriate to use it in a physics forum. However, it is important to provide evidence and explanations to support its use in the discussion.

5. How can I ensure that my use of the word "life" in a physics forum is appropriate?

To ensure that your use of the word "life" in a physics forum is appropriate, it is important to first understand the scope and purpose of the forum. Then, use the word in a scientific manner and provide evidence and explanations to support its relevance to the discussion. It is also helpful to use more specific terms when possible to avoid any confusion or misunderstandings.
