Motherly love is an evolutionary trait which helps to perpetuate the species. Parents which don't protect thier vulnerable offspring will not pass their genes on to the next generation because it will get eaten, so that trait has died out in species with few offspring, like humans.

There are other strategies available which are less hazardous to parents. One is to produce a large number of offspring at once, so that the predators get swamped and some survive. Fish do this, and so do turtles: the females swim ashore and bury their fertilised eggs in the sand and then depart, never to be seen again. It's left to the newly-hatched offspring to make a run for it.

Having culture, having a sense of self, using complex systems of communication, producing art, and having rich and deep emotional lives and knowing right from wrong, all these things make us human.

Salvationists state that people are not animals, and physically base that statement on the fact that there are no living links between animals and people. The reason there are no living links between animals and people is that all those links were exterminated by people.

These programs of extermination have become deliberate and organized. Adolph Hitler had the volumes of Helena Blavatsky's "Secret Doctrine", and "Isis Unveiled", in the book case that was right next to his bed. This system of evolution was explained in more simple terms in Max Heindel's "Rosicrucian Cosmoconception", in which species, races, and nationalities are listed in order of their designated superiority.
