Last night as I was walking home, I crossed paths with a couple kissing on the street corner. Two things struck me about their act of affection. First, they were both very unattractive, noticeably unattractive as it were. Next, although they both seemed to be making their best efforts, the kiss seemed really bad. I was then immediately reminded of one of the more confusing points of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. If only the fittest of the fittest survive, shouldn’t the population be getting more and more attractive? Why then so many ugly people? And in particular, why so many ugly couples? The easy answer is that the drive for procreation, love, affection, and belonging outweighs pride and selectivity.
