Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I do not like darwin approach for the "need of blief". I clearly stated that I hate the frame "need of belief" like if we were stupid...

Besides, it is a wrong approach... things do not ahppen because of adaptation to anything.

the darwing approach is like a child that can not accept taht we may not know how soemthing worked out so we invent a fairy history to calm us down..s ure sure.t here is an exaplanation.. look if some group or person beat another one because he was 2best". This is not onlya  disgusting approach.. is usign psuedo-science to carry the water for a particualrly western and hierarchical structure of the world. The darwin appraoch looking at soem adaptative advantage is a nonsense from my poin of view.

Animals , chimps, bononos lived in a complex environemnt with multiple interactions and relations. the complexity that can self-arised in this network landscape makes any attempt to approach this problem in this way futile.

It merely shows the biased opinions of the researcher. it is not science.. it is pseudo-science.

I also can not share your opinions about happines or sadness.. it recalls me of some pshychologists trying to defend that they could do exactly their work with the eskimos, the dowayos, the dogon ... and so on and on. Happiness is universal like deression (despite clear evuidence to the contrary) the freudian or purely pshychological approach is nonsense. Emotions are mostly narratives (maybe with a couple of exception whcih are truly universal like empathy or fear) about how we must behave.. they do not have an independent-frame  values .. they depend on the frame. So they can nto explain why we do things.

So I must and do completely disagree with you...

But great to show the disagreement :)

A pleasure
