I need help, I know this may sound ridiculous but here goes.

I am having a debate with coworkers.
I say that plants do not have feelings but my coworkers say that they
do.

I think this is ridiculous and I wish I had not got involved.

I explained that it is impossible for plants to have feelings like
people because they do not have a nervous system and brain and that
plants are living organisms which react to different stimuli and
chemical processes such as Photosynthesis.

But this did not register with them so I made no headway.

I need Biologists and Botanists give me some information concerning
this matter so that I can put some real credibility to this issue.

Cordially

Bill Vereen
