Tim Standish - Competition and Cooperation
The concept of all life is in competition for survival in which only the most fit survive is central to Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. This theme of struggle seems at odds with much of what is observed in nature and with Biblical themes of surrender and cooperation with God's will rather than rebellion against The Creator. While the Bible teaches creation has been marred by sin, is competition really the predominant theme of fallen creation? Or are enough echoes of the original "very god" creation left to encourage us to rethink the Darwinian view that all life is engaged in a struggle to the death?
