Is moral corruption bad for society or does it pay to be corrupt? According to these particular evolutionary biologists corruption is actually valuable in order to maintain “societal cooperation”.
In science daily…
“A report of their research is published in the journal Evolution. Using game theory, Úbeda and Duéñez looked at what causes individuals in society to cooperate even though those in charge display some level of corruption. They developed a model that allows individuals who are responsible for punishing noncooperators (e.g., law enforcers and government officials) to fail to cooperate themselves by acting in a corrupt manner. They also considered the possibility that these law enforcers, by virtue of their positions, are able to sidestep punishment when they are caught failing to cooperate.”
This study is actually political, extreme left leaning, like criminals having more rights than victims than it has to do with science. Rather than giving law enforcement as one of the key roles in cooperation and order in society, this study gives credit to moral corruption (sin according to the Bible) in the scheme of evolution and mention police breaking the law as an example. “Law enforcers often enjoy privileges that allow them to avoid the full force of the law when they breach it…Overall societal cooperation is maintained — as long as there is a small amount of power and corruption”.
Interesting enough, when evolution is kept out of the explanation, an economist who found an old saying very shocking after all serious crimes are blamed on a lack of a decent income, “money doesn’t buy happiness” did a study among 37 countries that vary from rich to poor, ex-Communist and capitalist.
“In contrast to shorter-term studies that have shown a correlation between income growth and happiness, this paper, to be published the week of Dec. 13 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, examined the happiness and income relationship in each country for an average of 22 years and at least ten years.”
“This article rebuts recent claims that there is a positive long-term relationship between happiness and income, when in fact, the relationship is nil,” explained Easterlin, USC University Professor and professor of economics in the USC College of Letters, Arts & Sciences.”
Darwinism is not just superfluous; it is downright evil. The Bible warns about this very thing…
By turning good and evil into amoral illusions with creating people as pawns of a mythical society of a evolutionary past, evolutionists open the door for all kinds of vices.
