Stathis and Brent,
I'll respond to both at once since they are the same core objection:
"Why does feeling have to have "purpose"?"
"I can't even conceive of what it would mean for them
to be justified. "
They have to be justified and have a purpose because that is what a
deterministic universe would require.
You apparently think you can just make words mean whatever you want. A deterministic
universe requires that that things be DETERMINED. It does require purpose or justification.
Otherwise I can just say that a
deterministic universe includes libertarian free will, ghosts&
goblins, whatever. What business does a feeling have being in a
universe that is essentially a very sophisticated clock?
