Why not? Feelings cause brain and body states that could be usefull
from the point of evolution.
I don't think that there is any possibility that any evolutionary
advantage could be derived of the fact of feeling itself. Any benefit
conferred by feeling would be redundant as long as you have the
functionality that you are attributing to that feeling. Only behavior
can count for evolution, not feeling.

But behavior comes from internal states, e.g. adrenalie, testosterone,..., and 
that's feeling.


A brain that behaves in a way
that makes the body survive and reproduce needs no help from some
magical interior narrative experience created out of thin air.
