Fight, Flight or Love?

Helping-Each-Other

The very process of the evolution theory is that of natural selection; survival of the fittest that brutalises and kills weaker species and outlives threatening conditions. Darwinists believe we are completely wired through our unguided, naturalistic, evolutionary development for survival.

Our herd instincts drive us to protect each other in times of danger, however, when the instinct to survive overrides the instinct to protect another, why are we able to choose against our most dominant instincts and choose to adhere to our inherent moral values?

How then do we explain the motivation of a stranger who lays down his own life to save a child from a burning building? Or organisations dedicated to caring for the homeless, abused, mentally and physically disabled?

Inherently it is demonstrated time and time again that listening to that still, small voice that guides us towards love and unity can override our most dominant instincts for survival.

And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. – 1 Kings 19:12
