There’s also a Darwinian explanation of heroism that says that males do things that are dangerous for their own lives because it will attract a mate, as these behaviors are necessary for the survival of the species from time to time. This has apparently been observed in many animals including crows, which are more often mated with (if they survive) when they stay high in the tree to be the look out for danger for the other crows, where they will also be more likely to be picked off by predatory birds and hunters.

Though it is my personal opinion that heroism in humans has more to do with the fact that we have emotional needs and would like to believe that people would do the same for us if we were in need of rescuing or compassion. It satisfies an intellectual tendency we have to recognize sameness within our species in a way and to a degree that other mammals do not. This makes us more prone to treat someone the way we would want to be treated in hopes that they will do the same, IE operate with conscience, much more often and much more radically than what you might observe in nature, even among highly fit K-reproductive animals like wolves. A wolf, for instance, cannot kill extra game for a sick limping member of the pack and give it to them, or settle a dispute of leadership with an election or a shareholder vote. Their contracts are basic because they have to be basic to survive. Our contracts are based upon what we find meritorious for the individual, because individual humans are fundamentally capable of providing all their own needs, even if it is not ideal or efficient for them to do so. Thus, we focus on achieving more than just survival and reproduction; We are able to focus and exchange ideas about what helps individuals live better, longer and happier lives. This is the fundamental basis for the reason why the human mind not only is capable but well-served in trying to imagine ways to achieve greater happiness than what is possible today, even when that sometimes means voluntary sacrifices in the short term on the part of individuals who conceive or embrace them. This is upward aim that makes man unique among his cohabitants of planet earth.

Also I think you guys missed the point on the handing the gun back thing; Some people do have a conscience and goodguys let certain people go sometimes because they *understand* they aren’t a badguy, and they’re trying to demonstrate to the other person that they aren’t fully convinced within themselves that what they’re doing is right or is going to help the situation. Faith might just be a fantastic judge of character. In real life it can and does happen, even if it’s nowhere near the majority of the time. That’s why we ought to admire it; Because we would like to think there are lots of people out there who would listen to reason if they were making a bad decision that affected another person. That used to be the ethics we idealized in western society, part of what made us great.
