If you make evolution set the standard, then you have to buy the darker side of its theology: "Good Tsunami, asteroid, CO2, mass extinctions of life forms; as these shocks will create a stronger forcing function on populations and individuals to adapt in the long term; good my family got killed in that last quake".
You can recognize that evolution is responsible for you valuing your life, and valuing the life of your children even more, without making natural selection your standard of value.
