There is no room for love in The Origin of Species
“If it could be proved that any part of the structure of any one species had been formed for the exclusive good of another species, it would annihilate my theory.” (194)
-Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species, from Chapter VI entitled “Difficulties with the Theory”
What Darwin describes is a picture of what love is. Love is changing oneself for the exclusive benefit of another being. If this is true, then love—humble, servant-hearted, self-sacrificing love—would break down the theory of Natural Selection. There is no room for humility in the theory; there is only room for prideful gain. Once something disrupts that—once a being acts for the sole benefit of another, without itself in mind, Natural Selection is left dumbfounded. And so is Darwin.
So go scare Natural Selection away. Go change for the sole benefit of another human being. Go fight against The Survival of the Fittest by how you sacrificially love one another.
