Isn't having a smoking section in a restaurant like having a peeing section in a swimming pool @ 08:28 am

Why is it that in the animal kingdom (man included) that the most attractive of the species gets the most attention? The most colorful female peacock gets the attention of the guys, and then they mate, etc. How is that "survival of the fittest?" How does the most attractive animal getting the most "luving" ensure survivaly of the species?

Maybe it's to maintain purity among the species. A sick unfit animal may not be the best choice to continue the species.

Kind of remind you of supremecy logic?

The mating practices of humans is a bit skewed since we have a higher level of awareness and emotions. At its roots physical attraction is supposed to give you cues as to who would and wouldn't make a good mate. (Muscle tone indicates good health, as does good hair and skin, etc.) Some practices we have are meant to exaggerate the cues of sexual attraction. (Makeup, doing your hair, perfume/cologne, and so on.)

In the animal kingdom I'm sure attraction is more instinctual than it is with us. The female peacock will see the big flashy male peacock (As far as I know men are the pretty ones in the bird kingdom, unless there's an exception for peacocks)and it will tell her that he would be able to produce healthy offspring and protect/provide for them.

So the next time you see a girl and think she's hot remember that the large part of the reason you think she's hot is because your subconcious has determined that she would be a suitable mate and would be a good canidate to help you insure the survival of your species by mating and multiplying.

they don't, actually

the most attractive is seen as out of reach

Usually they are... the really hot chicks are usually stuck up, and expected to be doted upon.
