Survival of the fittest- a predominant thought and prevailing theme in our modern society (especially in the scientific world) – or at least it seems to be.
Do we really live this way, though?
No. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have homeless shelters, orphanages, food kitchens, etc.
However, if survival of the fittest is true, we should just dismiss all the programs, right? Leave the people to fend for themselves.
They either make it or they do not. That’s the teaching of evolution, right?
One species adapts and survives, and those that don’t are weak and die off.
However, in America, individuals, celebrities, etc. are praised for their humanitarian work.
If we did not have these programs, we would come across as cruel and uncaring.
And that’s the fallacy of evolutionary thinking in America.
