EAI OnEvolution

Relate the dynamics of ethics not only to immediate individual effects, but to long-term whole-society effects. e.g. "evolution competitively selects cooperative behavior".

As far as natural selection applies to the human world, we don't ever get to "let nature decide", because we ARE part of that nature that decides. Hence, any claim to "let the nature decide" is just a fallacy to promote one point of view against others, or to ignore one's responsibilities.
