As some of you may know by now, I am a staunch believer in the theory of evolution, which by the way, I think in no way conflicts with my belief in some Supreme Being. But I do have one question about the “logic” of evolution, if you will. What possible evolutionary advantage could there ever have been to having people feel the sometimes extreme pain that accompanies terminal cancer? Think about it. It certainly never gave our forebearers, at least, any advantage. And since it weakens the person, I can see alot of disadvantage to its place in the survival of the fittest scheme. I was thinking at length about this subject before I posted it now. And I have concluded that, really, much like the brain, there is no “evolutionary logic” to us feeling pain in any of our internal organs. Sure we don’t want to injure them. But that can be accomplished simply by feeling pain in the skin and flesh on the outside of our bodies.
I look forward to hearing other’s thoughts on this matter. And thank you in advance to all who reply
