Amusing unscientific claim
« on: December 21, 2016, 04:20:01 am »

The above article claims that chimps are not altruistic, and that therefore we could not inherit altruism from chimpanzee-like ancestors. But, the fact is that humans are not altruistic either. Everyone has a reason for being benevolent to others. Nobody is benevolent for no reason at all - well, with the exception of the mentally-ill, of course.

Humans by understanding the nature of selfishness are able to transcend the limitations of selfishness.

A man who makes a beast of himself, forgets the pain of being a man.
