    What about them getting ignited when you use flint and steel on them? Also would the spore explosion be able to damage objects around it? ALSO why would Creepers only spawn at night? Dont plants need light? ALSO also if they were plants then how would they move? They would not be able to have an internal skeleton because that would make them an animal. They also would not have a brain or organs or muscles which would also negate the ability to move and the no brain would not even give them the ability to think or the ability to explode on demand.

    7:23 do you mean 3 feet?because if a creeper is 3 meters that means Steve is about 4 meters,or 12 feet tall,which makes no sense.

    There's actually a Minecraft mod that fits this theory perfectly and I'm wondering if it was inspired by this. The mod makes it so that creepers grow out of plants.
