Evolutionists tell us that we're just trying to spread our genes.
Economists tell us that all we do is maximize our self-interest.
Psychologists tell us that we just want to get laid.

It is an average Thursday morning at 'The Gate' in Wapping and, like every first-born child in the generations before her, Eve is guarding it carefully.

But now I'm here and this is - I'm questioning everything I ever believed in.”
