Watch "The Happening" movie, of course plants can think and right now they're thinking when to unleash their wrath on the human population. I just hope Mark Wahlberg can find a cure by then.

Your answers odd one:
1. No, they have no brain, this is a prerequisite to having conscious thought.
2. Evolution, an effort to sustain the species by creating a defense against would be predators.

What told the plant that thorns would help the species?
How does the plant know that it would even need a defense. Its aware of other organisms then?

Everything has the need to survive. Plants growing towards a light source does not imply they were thinking about anything. Plants, like all organisms, seek to perpetuate existence, but once again this does not imply self awareness or thought. As for developing thorns, you would need to understand eveolution in order to understand how/why it happens. It isn't as simple as some mutation among a species, but that is a good place to start understanding the science.

As for thinking, it requires some form of central collective (in basically all cases, neurons) cells which are able to control all aspects of that particular organism. Without this collective the organism will die. Plants clearly have no such collective.

I had a teacher in High School who left to go back to University to pursue his Masters by trying to answer the question "Do Plants communicate with each other".

No idea how it worked out for him, but I'm sure he'd answer yes they think.

i understand completely about the whole thinking process.and about the sunlight thing.


with that being said if we are agreeing that plants have a defense mechanism of any kind then we have to agree that they are aware of other organisms.
