Now that you have had your usual say about a God which is too human for me to believe in, as my God is everything, now I will jump to testosterone. (The god you reject has too much of it anyway for my liking as well!).
There are the birds. The little left-over dinosaurs. They build nests together and feed the babies, both of the parents. But from what I have read and heard they are not always faithful to each other, but maybe while there are babies in the nest.
Is it the jackals or some other dog-like animal in Africa where the whole pack looks after the pups? Even other males do it.
But with so many other mammals the testosterone serves to get the healthiest and strongest male to impregnate the whole group of females, with few exceptions, until a younger male comes along and replaces the older one after a bloody fight.
It is left to the females to feed and teach the young ones. If carnivores, they also go hunting to feed their young ones. The grass eaters try to keep the offspring near them and inside the herd. But if a wolf or lion comes along everybody just runs, and most often a young one gets caught and eaten.
Apes and monkeys cling to their mothers, who are running, so they must be safer.
Has testosterone made for a safer world? We will soon find out, won't we? It doesn't look too good at the moment, but maybe a bit of common sense will kick in.
