A Beautiful World
Rev. Rick Hoyt-McDaniels, preaching
Human beings see beauty everywhere: beautiful paintings, beautiful buildings, a beautiful sunset. Of course we recognize beautiful people, too, in which physical good-looks might stand as a proxy for good health and fertility. But in animals we imagine they only see the beauty in their mates as fertility markers. Why couldn't it be that animals see beauty widely and for the pleasure of beauty alone just as we do?
