So when you think in terms of the traits evolution selects — size, strength, intelligence, camouflage, etc. — you have to remember that such traits are selected only if they lead to more and better procreation.
And one insight of Scott's, or at least somebody's insight that he expresses very well, is that the ability to evaluate and understand reality isn't necessarily selected for at all, but what is selected for are any and all concepts of reality that lead to survival and procreation.
And this, Scott says, is why we have competing views of reality. They all work, and you can be a Christian, a socialist, a Theosophist, or a conspiracy theorist or whatever, and all these reality-concepts work very well at making you capable of procreation, and are therefore evolutionarily viable. Being a Shaker, however, didn't work, so we don't have Shakers any more. But let's have Scott speak for himself, This is from his blog here [link]:
Quibcag: Here we have the girls of Girls und Panzer (ガールズ&パンツァーGāruzu ando Pantsā). In the original illustration, they were watching something innocuous, so I Photoshopped in (and it wasn't easy) an iconic scene from 2001: A Space Odyssey, to fit the evolution thrust of the post.
