The roots of benevolence: Christian ideals and social benefit (ABC News Australia)

So writes Gary Ferngren, Professor of History at Oregon State University , in his meticulous study Medicine and Health Care in Early Christianity. Ferngren makes the case that benevolence in the ancient world was not only lacking, but even frowned upon, and that the introduction of Christian ideas such as the value of every individual, the need to show agape(selfless, sacrificial love such as the love Jesus Christ showed for all humanity) and social responsibility beyond class commitments was the background to most of the charitable instincts and institutions that christianised nations like Australia now take for granted.

Study questions the role of kinship in pilot whale strandings (Statesman Journal)

Scott Baker, associate director of the Marine Mammal Institute at Oregon State University, said genetic identification showed that, in many cases, the mothers of calves were missing entirely from groups of whales that died in the stranding. This separation of mothers and calves suggests that strong kinship bonds are being disrupted prior to the actual stranding — potentially playing a role in causing the event.
