Q: If evolution is ‘survival of the fittest,’ why would evolutionists even bother to care for others?

Quotable quote:

'Darwinism can be used to back up two mad moralities, but it cannot be used to back up a single sane one. The kinship and competition of all living creatures can be used as a reason for being insanely cruel or insanely sentimental; but not for a healthy love of animals ... That you and a tiger are one may be a reason for being tender to a tiger. Or it may be a reason for being cruel as the tiger. It is one way to train the tiger to imitate you, it is a shorter way to imitate the tiger. But in neither case does evolution tell you how to treat a tiger reasonably, that is, to admire his stripes while avoiding his claws.

‘If you want to treat a tiger reasonably, you must go back to the garden of Eden. For the obstinate reminder continues to recur: only the supernaturalist has taken a sane view of Nature.'

– Chesterton, G.K., Orthodoxy, John Lane, London, pp. 204–205, 1927.

A: If we’re just a part of this struggle for survival—animals ripping each other apart—and as the poet said, ‘nature red (with blood) in tooth and in claw,’ then why would we care for others—particularly the old and sick?

It’s interesting to note that it was really the Christians who started our modern hospitals, orphanages and schools, to care for others. That’s because our God is a God who loves and cares.

Recently, a doctor from Europe, which is just saturated in evolutionary humanism, related what happened when he took his father to the hospital. The doctors prescribed morphine. But when this man looked at the prescription, he realized, as a doctor himself, that it was a lethal dose! He explained to us that many old people don’t want to go to the hospital in these places any more because they’re worried they’ll receive a lethal injection!

This will start to happen in other countries if people don’t return to God’s Word, beginning with Genesis.
