@ reflected / G,
This is utter crap in my opinion,
Firstly, “facial beauty” is a perception, not an absolute, and may very well be altered from its genetic base by subsequent influences.
Secondly and so on, the notion that one will find the healthy ones more attractive that the unhealthy, I beg to differ, man is much more differentiated than to allow this to be true even in general, unless what you are saying is that “healthy” equals “preference”.
Our face is a reflection of our genes? Well, look no further, no one will object to that, but is it tell tale of the quality of your genes or simply means by which you can compare that face to present standard of beauty? And then, … a reflection of our health? It’s a small step for man, but a giant leap for medicine, I’ll give you that. This is taking too long.
And the list goes on, the moment my “radar” can sort out the genes, or more precisely, can spot the genome most likely to match mine in order to produce said offspring, I shall celebrate until my dying day.
We agree on two; our taste of beauty is what we are born with, such not only the programmed preference, but also a function of own outcome – your pre-defined level of entrance, and the experience life has to offer and yes, I believe you, the ”waste majority” will find exactly that!
Best regards, j
