I don’t know what to tell you, but I’m also both
highly interested and strongly confused by this
subject; there doesn’t seem to be much information
about it. Let me know what you find out.

During a man’s youthful years, lovely facial symmetry,”which is associated with health and genetic fitness”, can be appreciated fully by any observer. After a man has lived several decades, the man’s acquired good character is much more valuable to any observer than his handsomeness.

@Shane Wells:
I’ve been watching a lot of TED talks on youtube that relate to this topic. They often discuss facial structure with regards to the “golden ratio” of beauty, but I’m not really getting the concrete answers I’m looking for. Of course, I get that things like facial symmetry, good skin, etc. are gimmes.
It looks to me, though, that the link between good health and beauty isn’t cut-and-dried. Remember heroin chic?
Here are two of the TED talks I watched. Let me know if you like them.

Welcome to Gabbin' About God, sponsored by Ace Religious Supplies, where they say, “If we don't got it, it ain't holy.”

Just kidding. This is Not My God, a site for the personal aspect of atheism. I'm putting together a book with that title, having already 20 interviews lined up, but I still want to hear from more of you.
I've expanded the blog to include material not related to atheism, including rants, raves, consumer issues, curmudgeonly matters and other miscellany.
