Is life all about how an individual looks I am of the opnion that its more about who you are as...
a person- your take?
I'm in your camp. It superficial to judge someone based on their appearance. It's the easiest, safest, and laziest way to identify a threat, however.
There's a real problem in the way our brain is wired, but I'm sure we could learn to compensate for that by reserving judgments until we know what beliefs people hold.
We have to believe in something. It doesn't have to be God, but I know that helped me. In all honesty, I think some atheists like Carl Sagan understood God better than some high-ranking priests, but saw him in a different light----he studied how God made the universe and the laws of physics that He legislated.
Thanks for the great question
There will always be an element of physical judgement, but it's vital that you get to know a person before you jump to conclusions. You might come across a really attractive girl or guy that you can't help but admire, but once you get to know them you may find that they're a nasty piece of work!
I agree that who you are as a person matters more than how you look, but when someone meets you for the first time they evaluate you very quickly - within seconds and this first impression can be very difficult to reverse, so it is important to try to look your best. That doesn't mean to say that everyone needs to look like a supermodel, as long as you're friendly, approachable and well-groomed (clean and tidy) it isn't so important what size or shape you are or if you're wearing the latest fashions.

Why do people that don't believe in God, respond to questions about God?Don't get me wrong. I respect and appreciate every response, even if they disagree. That is everyone's right. But I usually don't waste time and energy in things that I don't believe in. Sure, I don't believe in Santa and still...

It Seems That Ugly People Are More Anti-Social and Violent Than Good Looking People. Do You Agree?Whether it be cops or politicians, usually it's the ugly ones who are making the news, killing people, and creating havoc.
