  1. what are the 4 criteria for life?
    1. all life forms contain DNA (which is deoxyribonucleic acid).

    2. all life forms have a method by which they extract energy from their surroundings and convert in into energy that sustains them

    3. all life forms can sense changes in their surroundings and respond to those changes

    4. all life can reproduce
  2. an organism is classified as a carnivore. is it heterotroph or an autotroph? its is a predoducer, consumer, or decomposer?
    heterotroph, consumer
  3. an organism has receptors on tenticles that come out of its head. if those tenticles were cut off in an accident what life functioin would be most hampered?
    the function to sense their surrounding envierments
  4. a parent and 2 offspring are studied. there are some similarities but also differences. does the organism reproduce sexually or asexually
  5. whats wrong with the statement " science has proven that energy must always be conserved"
    science can't prove anything
  6. describe the scientific method
    the scientific method is : make observations, form a hypothesis based on observations, design experiments to test the hypothesis, after the hypothesis has been tested by a significant amount of data and is consistent with all of it, the it becomes theory.  After more testing with generations of data, the theory could become scientific law.
  7. why does the story of spontaneous generation illastraites the limitations of science
    it shows that a law was clearly wrong
  8. where does the wise people place their thinking. science or the Bible
      the bible
  9. why is the theory of abiogenesis just another example of the idea of spontaneous gemeration
    its the idea that long ago very simple life forms spontaneously through chemical reactions.
  10. name the classification groups in our hierarchical classification scheme in order.
    • kingdom
    • phylum
    • class
    • order
    • family
    • genus
    • species
  11. an organism is a multicellular consumer made of eukaryotic cells. to what kingdom does it belong in.
  12. if we were using the three-domain system of classification in which domain would the orgasnism in the previous question belong
  13. an organuism is a single celled consumer made o0f prokaryotic cells. to what kindom does it belong
  14. if we were using the 3 domain system of classification in which domain could you determine the domain of the organism in question. if so give the possible domains in which it could be placed.
    archaea or bacteria 

    we cant know for certain which one without further characteristics
