If we define “rational” to mean “that which enhances survival”, we’re left with a term that can only be assessed retrospectively. And at what time? I suppose we’d have to wait until the heat death of the universe to know for sure what constituted “rational” and what did not. This doesn’t sound like a workable definition to me.
