Why is there beauty?

Postby Pajarita » Mon Jul 17, 2017 9:15 am

I found this very interesting as I had never actually thought of this before... Is beauty, for beauty's sake and nothing more, an element that birds consider when choosing a mate? Or is the 'beauty' nothing more than a physical demonstration of a 'fitness attribute' as we have been thinking all along?

What do you guys think?

John, as it's often the case with me, I have no idea what the lyrics to that song mean! :lol:
