Question by Michael: Atheist: Why do you want to help the less fortunate if there is no God?
The concept of “fitness” is central to natural selection. In broad terms, individuals that are more “fit” have better potential for survival, as in the well- known phrase “survival of the fittest”.
What makes you want to help others? The weak do not deserve to survive?
But why is someone else’s life important to you?
Death is a natural part of life,
“Everyone deserves to survive, you don’t need to be Christian to feel sympathy to those less fortunate.”
These emotions are significant in all of our lives because they originate from a source unburdened by the limitations of our physical universe – I can’t think of a better definition of God than this. We all naturally love each other. ‘God is love’
Answer by Brad
Because it makes me feel better. It makes someone else’s life better. It makes the world a better place.
