Teleology - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Teleological, a logic abuse
In total disrepute by logic mis-use

Teleology assigns final purpose to all things
The concept from which false assumption inevitably springs

Some use it to illustrate their belief in an almighty high power
Out there somewhere in his lofty, kingly tower

Their argument rests falsely on their “purpose” assumption
Held up to reasons light, it’s an illogical presumption
