What is the point at which inorganic matter becomes a living entity?

What is the point at which inorganic matter becomes a living entity?
Paul Prendergast from Worcestershire (Age 45-54)

  1. This is a very thought provoking question. You must consider that our very existence depends on inorganic matter, For example, our bodies need calcium, sodium, potassium and many more trace elements. So inorganic matter is totally integrated into our vital life systems. Inorganic matter in itself has no life. You should re-word the question and ask ‘At what point does organic matter become a living entity?’ After all we have a substance such as sugar that is scientifically classified as organic but it certainly is not living. So we have increasing complexity in organic molecules. Once these complex molecules are capable of replication then that is the starting point for life. Consider for example RNA and DNA.
