Personally, I think that's a pretty stupid thing to say.

A good author isn't going to include a useless detail just for the hell of it. S/he isn't going to say that the curtains were blue if there's no plot-driven purpose for it.

Colors can be incredibly important for symbolism in writing. For example, in 'A Streetcar Named Desire', Tennessee Williams specifically makes a point out of how Blanche always wears white. It isn't because it's a pretty color--it's because white is a symbol of purity.

or, the author could be, what's it called? describing a scene for further clarification to the reader and to enhance his or her imagination? yeah, it's a weird technique, but not unheard of

Lol, because in Arab internet slang or whatever you call it, a 7 is the "H" sound, because the "H" looks a bit like a 7 :P.
I was excited to see an Arab on here :L

I am an atheist. I don't believe in the big bang theory, that's just stupid. But my idea is that is you can't see,smell,hear,taste, or feel God, then he doesn't exist. Certain things, like the creation of Earth, cannot be explained. No one knows how Earth was created and we never will have a truth to how it was made

That's what I think too. But then someone asked me "so do you believe in love?" I was fuckedd for an answer.

Just a small question, people complain against the big bang theory because they ask where the gases came from etc, then how can you explain where god came from?

Um...haha...whatever makes you happy...

"we're prettier than dancers"
and you think you're not a bunch of **** dancing around in short skirts...

And I'm pretty sure dancers would rather dance than try out for cheerleading

well, the definition of the word alive is: to have life. The definition of the word life is: to be in existence. Therefore, a fetus is alive and has life.

According to your theory, my chair is alive and so is the shirt I'm wearing, and so is everything else in existence, apparently.
Btw the definition of a living thing is:
Living things are made of cells.
Living things obtain and use energy.
Living things grow and develop.
Living things reproduce.
Living things respond to their environment.
Living things adapt to their environment.
I'm not against you here, because I think fetuses are somewhat alive, but you're not helping yourself...
