Survival of the Fittest

Survival of the Fittest is a theory that has been around for centuries. Dubbed a natural selection, survival of the fittest relates to those organisms that best adapt to existing conditions and are able to survive and reproduce.

The theory is fascinating. I’ve gained a new view of the survival of the fittest in the 21st century. The theory doesn’t only relate only to physical survival but also metaphysical.

Because we live in a society that aims to garner more humanity, handicapped people are given the respect they deserve. Some people make it very clear that although handicapped physically, they are superbly able to adapt and survive. Why?


The mental states of a zest for life, humor, good-will, gentleness, peacemaking, courage, and serenity are powerfully strong. Though physically handicapped, their mental states are fit. They are survivors. The metaphysical qualities were also exemplified in Christ, manifest as the true idea of God.

From 21st Century Science and Health,”Divine Science differs from the hard and soft sciences, because it has a complete unified theory. The Science of Christ is preeminently scientific because it is based on Truth, the Principle of all science.”
