No duh.  What exactly do you think sprouting is?  I'll bet if you take
an acorn, plant it and wait a decade, then come back and incinerate the
resulting "sprout", the residue will weigh more than a _whole_ acorn.
Much more.

This would be more impressive if you burned the filter paper as well.
Otherwise, you can't rule out the much more plausible hypothesis that
the sprouts have extracted trace minerals from the paper.

Even if we assume such transmutations occur, how could you _possibly_
know the above?

Never heard of it, but feel free to post a description of the
phenomenon, and evidence that the silicon is transmuting.  You sure
you're not describing damage due to acid rain?

And not, say, incomplete burning of the fuel?  That's the usual cause of
CO.  Do your results still hold if you heat up the iron electrically in
a pure nitrogen environment?

You mean, they can survive in radioactive environments?  Sure.  So can a
guy in a lead suit.  They can prevent radioactive decay?  Prove it.

There's no such physical law.  It's hard to take seriously anyone who
tries to blow away all of modern science without understanding what a
scientific law _is_.
