If somethIng has a detectable heartbeat, should it be considered alive?
Not always. You can be half-dead and still have a detectable heartbeat. Half-dead means brain-dead. When you're brain-dead, you still have somewhat of a detectable heartbeat, until you completely run out of oxygen and blood flow.
I think so, because it has a heartbeat...
Well yeah, but the first thing to look for for life is the brain...!
Yes why not we have a heart that beats and we are alive
I would think so.
You can be brain dead and have a heart beat so no
