I'm not sure what you mean by "from whence cometh these tools of natural selection?" But, natural selection is one of the processes that cause evolution.
Natural selection is defined by 3 inferences base on 5 facts. It is well accepted in both religious and scientific circles of all beliefs. (I don't think anyone believes that there is no competition in nature and species cannot go extinct anymore).
Fact 1: All species have great potential fertility.
Fact 2: Populations display stability.
Fact 3: Natural resources are limited. In a stable environment, they remain relatively constant.
Inference 1: There is a "struggle for existence" among individuals of a population.
Fact 4: No two individuals are exactly alike; every population displays enormous variability.
Fact 5: Much of this variation is heritable.
Inference 2: Survival and reproduction is not random. It depends on the heritable constitution of surviving individuals.
Inference 3: Over generations, this process will lead to a continuing gradual change of populations and to production of new species.
So, essentially, natural selection is the idea that there is unequal survival and reproduction within species. It is a tool of evolution, but does not have tools necessarily.
