Another atheist question

by Andrea Elizabeth

How does an atheist explain how horses and other animals and plants seem especially suited for use by people? Did people adapt to the lower species that came before? So we sit the way we do because horses are shaped the way they are? This logic sounds better regarding our dietary needs, but not for transportation.

On the other hand, I don’t like the totally utilitarian approach that says God made plants and animals just for the service of man. I think they should be able to enjoy their own telos’s apart from us.
