I was expecting a good argument, Summerlander.
But you were just ranting!
How would I describe what you just replied... how do I put it..... oh yea...

I'm just messing with ya I love a good debate sometimes, and I know you do to, and just being argumentative and using your own quote back at you for fun. I must admit I like the, word "teleology", and had to look that up, and explains many debates here on this forum. That does explain my side, but it still doesn't mean it's absurd. You missed the mark, and didn't persuade me at all. I'm extremely open minded and really want someone to prove me wrong. Or even right for that matter.
If we have no free will (and that's my stand point to at the moment) then isn't is possible for a giant super computer to predict our every move? What else is comparable to that? The brain of course!
So it's not unfathomable that we can predict the future to some extent?
I hope my ideas resonate more than my wording, but isn't there at least a little bit of truth to what I'm saying? If not, I can take it, and it's all just words, and concepts and nothing is personal. You can slam a few jokes at me too if it's in good taste, because I admit I did the same!
But if I hear a definite answer from anyone I will change my mind at a heartbeat!
EDIT: What I wanted to condense it down to was that you are right about it being all teleological. And many debates on this forum are. I was going to re-phrase it in two lines:
You were ranting.
But I was rambling.
I'll pick this up again when I'm back online. I'm not getting off that easy am I....
