Yesterday I read Feser's text in "Last superstition" about natural law as a preparation for the discussion. I think i won the battle, arguing that the final cause of sexuality is reproduction. A fellow student said I failed to understand the spirit of Jesus and called me biologist. The professor became also angry.  :LOL:  He really said that the idea of natural law could not be valid because nature intended man to have a beard, so it would wrong to have no beard.
The only problem is that the professor (a supporter of the kantian idea of autonom ethics) will test me next monday about moral theology.

Sigh. The professor is an idiot. How does shaving one's beard affect the rightful use of man's faculties in anyway whatsoever? A beard is, at most, adornment. It amazes me how many sophists we have in academic philosophy departments.
