If you would like to call them specifically amino acids, go right ahead, but thats definitively wrong.
And in the poll, I was asked whether a zygote is an organism. As pointed out previously in this thread, and as of yet completely unrefuted, it was pointed out there is a difference between an organism and a living thing.
As for the point concerning semen and egg cells being nonliving, if we stipulate that a living thing has to respond to stimuli, reproduce, grow and develop, and maintain homeostasis as a whole being, then sperm cells and egg cells are not living things.
You can reference any biology text book for that.
