Pointy eggs and whales (Evolution)

DAVID:


We certainly part of something big. But I think by analyzing reality we can see purpose and method of design.


Gatekeeper: to a degree you are correct. But we first have to classify the system we are in to agree on a general purpose. "alive" fits. We can calculate that notion and measure that notion, cruedly to be sure, but it's more valid than the counterclaim of "not alive". so the "purpose" is "to live" for me. "to know its mind" is just too far of a reach at this point.

What evolution shows is that the feedback systems on planet earth are "living". life forms are forming and going extinct to carry out the functions of just "being". Claiming anything past that past that is extrapolating just a little too far for me.

I would accept that "being" for a complex organism is to learn about its surrounding's. That claim includes 'to know it's mind". If the universe knows we are here, it would be happy for us to know it. Like we are happy our children understand us. But that doesn't mean "god", nor does it mean I have to run from that notion because of three letters, g, o, and d.

Again, I compare the interactions of lifeforms to proteins in a cell to support my beliefs in this matter. I think a grand purpose me be for a life form to make another earth, terraform, then ultimately to make another universe.

I am not certain of this conclusion, but its better than the militant sect of atheism's claims, deny everything to control religion, and it also seems more realistic than the big three's claims too. for me that is.

I view your approach as descriptive, not explanatory, but perhaps you don't need a cause and an effect.
