(b) To what extent does the concept of a final cause teach us anything about the real world? [10]

It can be argued that the concept teaches us much about the real world as once we know about the final cause we realise God has given us a purpose in life just as the Bible says thus it tells us much about the real world in religious terms.

Secondly, it may help us realise that God is real because God said we all had a purpose in the world thus by knowing about the final cause we can realise that this is true.

On the other hand, it can be argued that it still doesn't teach us how to live our lives.
