technically, the Sun is not actually on fire, it is just a massive nuclear reaction that is generating tremendous energy and heat.

soo... all the fire bursting (maybe i shouldn't say bursting but) out of the sun like the solar flares and ****... isn't fire?

Yeah and the ocean isn't flooding, genius, it's just a lot of water.

A miasma of incandescent plasma.

I believe that is what fire is.

It's combustion as well as nuclear fusion.

the sun doesn't combust, combustion is the chemical reaction that consumes and restructures the chemical makeup of objects, generally requiring fuel and an ignitable gas to burn.  Stars, however, are enormous nuclear fusion reactors, and what they are doing is actually fusing atoms together and making new elements, Hydrogen to Helium, etc, etc, and since there is no oxidizing element in stars, they never actually "ignite" per se, instead they produce a tremendous amount of energy that pushes outward from their core at extreme heat, creating an outer coronal layer of plasma which looks a lot like fire but acts nothing like it.

I've never heard of fusion being referred to as "fire."

That's because it isn't the sun does both fusion and combustion.

I wouldn't call it combustion. As far as I know carbon is far more combustible than hydrogen and helium, which is what stars are made of. I'm fairly certain that stars give off light because they are at such high temperatures. Just about anything at say 5,700 K would glow. I'm sure that the nuclear fusion going on in the sun would add to it, but i would bet on the sun giving off light just because it's really ******* hot.

true story, hence why the sun produces radiation

the only reason we arent dead or mutated is because of the ionosphere blocking most of the ionized radioactive particles, and the non-ionized radiation is pretty much just like microwave energy

energy is heat. ******* Ionosphere is ruining my Summer. If Im gonna be President, im gonna nuke the **** out of that stupid sphere. We have Strato, Tropo, Meso, Thermo and Exo anyways
