Cells also have imaginations so for the most part they're just thinking they're walking around

No. Go to science jail! 'Bonk'

White Blood Cells are homosapiens?

@Milkzey White Blood Cells are homosapiens?

Homo sapiens white blood cells are homo sapiens

@Girlislit really? hell goin on here

Kinda like organs. Can't just eat any liver without knowing the species. It might be your neighbor Joe's liver, and meals cooked with human flesh usually don't get much love on Instagram

@Iamalgend but a white blood cell isn't a homosapien, that's not how it works

A white blood cell is not a whole homo sapiens, but the white blood cell is still a homo sapiens white blood cell. Everything in you that contains your DNA or is made by your DNA is of the homo sapiens species.

@teknogreek A white blood cell is not a whole homo sapiens, but the white blood cell is still a homo sapiens white blood cell...

so what you're saying is white blood cells are apart of kingdom animalia, and all the different levels of being an animal to also be a homosapien

your mental gymnastics to make this work fall flat once you realize they need to be apart of kingdom animalia, but even past that it falls apart when we fall into the category of animals with a spinal cord.

again this doesn't scientifically add up

@Thatoneduderyan so what you're saying is white blood cells are apart of kingdom animalia, and all the different levels of being an...

You think mammal cells are somehow not mammalian? I'm a molecular biologist fwiw. We can argue about this, but it's probably best if you Google it lol.

it has homosapiens DNA, as you said, but is not a whole homosapien, so the again how can it he the same species as us, it's a part of us, but how is it the same species.

@Kionix it has homosapiens DNA, as you said, but is not a whole homosapien, so the again how can it he the same species as...

"Homosapien" isn't a thing. Our species is "homo sapiens". "Sapiens" isn't plural, so maybe that made my phrasing confusing. A cell is not a human, but a human's cell is homo sapiens.

You can go to any research supplier and look into ordering cells for cultures. You'll quickly see the store is sectioned up by species. Human cells are homo sapiens. White blood cells aren't their own generic species. They are part of whatever species they're a part of

A white blood cell isn’t a species.
