    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 smile

    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!

    Photo taken by Kacey Cluff The question about inner beauty verses outer beauty is as old as the mirror and possibly older still. The cave men and women, when seeking mates, had this argument, I am sure, at the edge of a large puddle or a lake. It is... read more

    Image is only temporal. Substance endures. Who said, "Image is everything"? And who believed it?
