I will grant you that we elevate them a bit more because of their status or the "celebrity" mystique, but they're still knockouts. I see hot women everyday, but rarely see women that have my jaw dropping.
I see attractive women on a regular basis, yes, which is why women who are merely attractive are a dime a dozen.
I'm sure someone will attack this (that's what usually happens on here), but I can tell you in all honesty and seriousness that I've only ever met one woman who was jaw dropping in her beauty in my opinion. As I got to know her and found out she was also a wonderful human being, I found her more and more attractive. Luckily for me, I later found out the feeling was mutual, and the rest is history.
My standards for jaw dropping are very high, and she's honestly the only woman who has ever met them. Still, if she hadn't been a great person as well, it wouldn't have mattered the least.
The bottom line is, we find the "science" to support what we believe - our beliefs are not formed by science. Think of the most reputable scientist you can - if that scientist suddenly came out tomorrow with a detailed, scientific study supporting Creationism, you wouldn't change your tune. You'd reject it as foolish or flawed and go look for other science to support your viewpoint. And why? Because Evolution is your BELIEF SYSTEM, and you gravitate towards the things that support it.
Agreed 100 percent with this.
Funny how none of those with "majority" beliefs ever want to admit they wouldn't change those beliefs even if the people they rely on for support in those beliefs were to change.
One can't say the Bible was created after the fact to support the Christian/Creationist view, and then act like it's impossible that certain scientific "evidence" could not possibly also have been created after the fact to support the Evolutionist viewpoint.
No, Jtpsops. Don't you understand? You're not allowed to apply the same scrutiny to "majority" opinions as they get to apply to your "minority" opinion. That's part of their rules.
All of their ideas are supported by science and therefore fact. You can't question them. You can't suggest this science might be wrong and could someday be conclusively proven to be wrong. You can't suggest they might have an agenda - only people on your side can have agendas. You can't suggest equality at all - they are of the "majority" and therefore are right and you're a (insert insult here) if you disagree.
Good for you pointing out how they try to apply principles of argument to your side of it and not to their own.
