Yeah, I never really saw Star Wars as some religious metaphor, I always saw it for what it really was- a ripoff of Kurosawa's The Hidden Fortress.
Have you actually seen 'The Hidden Fortress'?
son_of, since this thread is effectively derailed now, I gotta point out that you seem to be confusing a global ideal of attractiveness with a global average or mean. In other words, different cultures in different times have had wildly varying "ideals" of beauty. Finding anything close to a common denominator among these doesn't prove the existence of one objective ideal, only that divergent things can ultimately be averaged out.
Also, you don't really help your case with this...
I am talking about the reality of a physical ideal, which may not even be apparent to mere mortals.
Uh huh. But it's apparent to you somehow. I know this may look like a cheap shot, but it's not. In arguing this case, you seem to be retreating to the "It can't be proven, but it's true because God said so" strategy. If not, please explain how this differs.
