The Institutes of an Evolutionary Confession of Faith: But Is Nietzsche Wrong?

Stimulus: The New Zealand Journal of Christian Thought and Practice
Volume 17 Issue 4 (Nov 2009)

Abstract: A perception of the concept of evolution which appreciates the role of religion in human life is presented by utilizing Sir Julian Huxley's views on the issue. It is suggested that the concept of 'escalator fallacy' which includes love, compassion and humility should be considered the basis of evolution, rather than the 'survival of the fittest' concept devoid of these qualities that Nietzsche believed in.
