Hi again,

Good discussion, but I think you blew past the answer to your controversy. Mario said:

"If you're not concerned about its truth, then you really don't have any right to call it meaningless. If it's true, it has some meaning (bearing on the outside world.) Who cares whether or not it answers any deep questions? It's not supposed to, evolution doesn't deal with meaning or origins, that is an entirely different matter. That's like blaming a car for not being able to fly."

In part, Mario said "you really don't have any right to call it meaningless", and later, "evolution doesn't deal with meaning".

Doesn't that give Aurino the right?

Warm regards,
