A Biologist, A Saint and a Poet debate over the functions of the heart

The Biologist

The Heart is just an organ
It has only one function
It circulates blood (Period)

The Saint:

The Heart is a spiritual instrument
A core determinent of good and evil
An eternal pathway to meet or miss God

The Poet:

The Heart is the seat of Love
It is where pain and joy are felt
It is a link between the body and mind

According to your assessment Who is the winner?

Good questions asked with each having equal merits depending on your point of view. Though as you posted this on a place of poets I suspect that most will concur with the third reason

Excellent job again. Very thought provoking. (I think it's a three-way-tie)
Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner

you've penned a brilliant, thought provoking piece--all three are important, but as a poet, i have to choose number three (although two makes a strong point, too)

BRAVO, my (((friend)))

((((HUGS)))) and love,

karla. :)

I argue this one with one Poet I know ;)
All the time smiles

Sorry to be a wet blanket, but I agree with the biologist. I think the brain is where everything happens. The heart is just an organ, albeit one of the most important organs in the body. I suspect that Western thought has enshrined the heart with many attributes, but that other cultures would look at it differently. In any case, this is a good job dealing with a subject open to so many points of view.

I have to agree with Ed...I think it's all three.
