Have you ever considered the idea that, in the end, the world is a fair place? Karma exists. Good things happen to good people and vice versa. Hard work results in achievement. Well, I have. And I reached a difficult conclusion: In the end, the world is much more complex than that. Why? Because the world is run by chaos.
Can you think of a single sinister character in history books or fiction who was born, lived a happy, fulfilling, and satisfying life, and then died happily? No, of course not. People just do not think like that. No one would write that. But can you think of someone in your life who has done terrible things to you or someone you know, who has cheated to success, or who is unnessesarily cruel, and then afterwards has had a great life experience? I can think of plenty.
Ethically, shouldn't being prideful of a talent or success that you did not earn through strength of character be considered an evil? How about exerting that success over others who do not have it? Isn't that unjust? But this is exactly what often happens with people who life has given great intellect. They think things like, "I am so much better than these people. I do better than other people because they are retards." And these people go on to succeed, while the retards end up picking up their trash.
A student with bright hopes might spend three hours a day studying while some of his more gifted classmates go out and drink and smoke. He might be genuinely interested in learning and accomplishment, while they might laugh about cramming and think about how everything will just work out; one day they will have a presitgious job and a fabulous life, just like their parents. But in the end, those gifted students do excel, and the worker will get left behind, forced to hear one of those smart kids say, "the reason I don't have to study and I beat you is that I'm smart and you are dumb". In such a situation, is natural selection ethical?
Well, the answer to that question depends on another question. What is ethical? Who decides what is ethical. After all, the gifted student probably thinks the situation is entirely fair, for some reason or another. And he will write that it is when he writes the history books, which he will write because he is the only one of the two even capable of writing a history book. But who is right? If everyone could be given a pill to make them equally talented and hard working, would it be ethical to give it? What if it could only be given to people who could afford it? Is the only truly ethical situation pure chaos? Is the chaos that runs our universe even ethical? If the universe is unethical, is this evidence that there is no God, or that God is unethical?
