In the struggle for survival, the fittest win out at the expense of their rivals because they succeed in adapting themselves best to their environment.

or in other words.....“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”

Charles Darwin quote

19th Century's Charles Darwin thoughts are spiritual like the thoughts of many other spiritual giants like Maanickka vasagar, (9th Century) said,
"Pulaagi poondai puluvai maramaagi
pal mirugamagi paravaaiyai paambaagii
Kalaai manitharai paeyaayi ganangalaai
val asuraragi munivarai thevarai
sela ninra ith thaavara sangamathul
The above means that I was a grass, then evolved to a garlic, then to tree, several reptiles, animals, birds, then to human, wandering-ghosts, to angels, demons, saints, and finally to Gods.
In the above, we see the driving force is the change that happens first in external and then internal after we reach Human state.

We see this in all spiritual traditions. To quote another example, from Islamic Sufi saint (13th century). The Sufi Path of Love : The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi (1983) by William C. Chittick, p. 162

I died as a mineral and became a plant,
I died as plant and rose to animal,
I died as animal and I was Man.
Why should I fear? When was I less by dying?
Yet once more I shall die as Man, to soar
With angels blest; but even from angelhood
I must pass on: all except God doth perish.
When I have sacrificed my angel-soul,
I shall become what no mind e'er conceived.
Oh, let me not exist! for Non-existence
Proclaims in organ tones, To Him we shall return.

We see that there is a similarity in the thoughts of both Spiritual and scientific views regarding evolution.
Evolutionary ideas then go with rebirth, because it is the Self-awareness that is being born again and again and not the body or the mind or the intelligence. All the experiences that are collected in the body and mind and intelligence are imprinted in Awareness. This collection of imprints is what we call as personality. This awareness is expressed as Genetics in an organism and not the other way around.
