Ice is water that has frozen, water is a chemical substance composed of hydrogen and oxygen. Water doesn't stop being water when its temperature drops and it enters a solid phase, equally it doesn't stop being water when it boils (which is why they call it water vapor) - All three phases of the substance are forms of WATER.
Hail is made from water, just like rain.
No! It is called steam. Not the same as water. Or ice.
QED (That is latin for "you are a dumbass")
|Water is a ubiquitous chemical substance that is composed of hydrogen and oxygen and is vital for all known forms of life.|
In typical usage, water refers only to its liquid form or state, but the substance also has a solid state, ice, and a gaseous state, water vapor or steam. Water covers 71% of the Earth's surface. On Earth, it is found mostly in oceans and other large water bodies, with 1.6% of water below ground in aquifers and 0.001% in the air as vapor, clouds (formed of solid and liquid water particles suspended in air), and precipitation. Oceans hold 97% of surface water, glaciers and polar ice caps 2.4%, and other land surface water such as rivers, lakes and ponds 0.6%. A very small amount of the Earth's water is contained within biological bodies and manufactured products.
Well, there is your problem. You are quoting wiki-dope-ea. You also have a problem with reading comprehension. Note that it says water vapor or steam. "Or" means it can't be both, dipshit. Therefore, steam is not water.
It is no wonder evolution is a dead theory, with jokes like you advocating for it.
It's natural to be curious about our world, but the scientific method is just one theory about how to best understand it. We live in a democracy, which means we should treat every theory equally. - Steven Colbert, I Am America (and So Can You!)
