I don't need you to show me definitions. I understand that some definitions indicate viruses are microorganisms and some indicate that they are not. That wasn't my point.
I know for a fact, from my studies, that a large proportion of the scientific community don't consider viruses to be living or to be microorganisms.
"Viruses and prions, although microscopic, are not considered microorganisms because they are generally regarded as non-living"
So how have you in any way addressed my question? Essentially you've said the same thing three times without getting anywhere.
i answered your question, you just don't want to add it up, its a question of symantics, read the last paragraph and it shall set you free
