Demonstrably untrue. Although I find babies interesting and
valuable, I do not find them beautiful at all. I'm not the only one
with this opinion, as I know several others (men and women) who hold

Again, demonstrably untrue.

An interesting opinion. Care to define beauty?
> For ethics, culture only deals with transitive and recent changes.
> Its effect on ethics is noticeably different from that of evolved
Again, an interesting opinion. Would you provide us with an example
or two of how a cultural ethic is different from an evolved ethic?
How would one reliably identify this defference?
