No I do, I doubt folks like yourself do.

If you think you know more than I do here on it's meaning, please expand on what a "telos" is, what it means for an object to have an end purpose.

And then let me know if biological objects like the heart have a "telos". And also let me know as an atheists, if you believe teleology exists in nature?

I'm all ears. This should be fun.

Being a sufferer from a serious cardiac condition the heart andbits functions is of considerable interest to me, Tomasia.

Pray tell me what other purposes this organ serves, under instruction ftom the brain and hormonal system (and, in my case, some very clever and complex electronics) other than to pump (which mine does at only about 45% efficiency) blood around the body.

There is feedback to other systems but, basically, the heart is the slave in the treadmill. The better you treat it the longer it will serve you well!

No metaphysical mysteries there.

Rather arrogant, don't you think?

After you answer why we should consider medieval concepts like combining philosophy and science/biology when we have apistevism and the scientific method.

Hmm

Thanks, FBH, a new word for me. Interesting.

I picked it up on one of Aronra's lectures. Forget which one.

No more arrogant, than an atheists pointing out to a creationist that he doesn't know what he's talking about. But if someone want to make my "arrogant" ass eat his hat, the invitation is open.

I don't recall asking anyone to consider the validity of any teleological argument. It's only a question of the meaning of teleology, not it's validity. Regardless if the arguments for it are valid, or silly.

See above.

I didn't know that you're a sockpuppet for SYZ? I'm not sure how else you felt a post responding to SYZ was for you.

Nah masturbating here is cheap and easy. Can't pass up the opportunity.

Ah okay, so since the forum is a free-for-all, that means you weren't just referring to me as a dipshit, but everyone on this forum as a dipshit?

Of course you weren't.

Now go back and read the exchange again with this in mind, and wipe Fatbaldhobbit's cum off your chin, you fucking lackey.

Atheists pointing out to fool Creatards their utter ignorance of any relevant topic is hardly arrogance. Simply a fact. You, of course, having a favorite hobby of insulting atheists as a general group, (did they teach you this at your "prestigious" university ?) Laugh out load

If you want to have a totally private conversation, you use the PM feature. That's what it's there for.
