My book on the shelf

I definitely would not argue that way. Read:
The Disenchanted Naturalist’s Guide to Reality



Oh and in return I offer you:
The Enchanted Naturalist’s Guide to Reality

Are you saying that you can be a rationalist and still believe there is an ultimate purpose, whereas this option is not available to a naturalist?

I hope he is. Ultimate purpose would be horrible. I'd much rather determine my own purpose.

On intentionality, have you read any Being and Time yet, hey Mr. Dasein?

Nope, perhaps you can give your impressions and what you found to be the most interesting in the book.

No, you must study it yourself, otherwise you miss out on being-in-the-book ( "in-dem-Buch-sein" IIRC ).
;D

That is a weird thing to believe :o.... If you think you are determining your own purpose then you are delusional in the first place since you can no more determine your own purpose than the brain is able to alter the course of events or alter itself. It is just a bag of chemicals reacting according to laws matey, and if that is true, then thinking you are determining your own purposes is about as delusional as believing in Santa (or God in your case)....

Oh well, since there are other interesting books (e.g. The Metaphysical Foundations of Modern Physical Science) and time is precious, I think I'll skip this one since it seems like you did not get much from the book other than saying "look, I read it but don't know much about it, I just like to tell others how I can read books". Seems like you wasted your time there andare now wasting the time of others. Oh well, one day you are going wake up from your slumber to be constructive right?
