  1. Do women being lighter than men have something to do with it?
  2. No, I just wanted you to take a look and then give me your thoughts
  3. https://books.google.ca/books?id=2W9TCwAAQBAJ&pg=PA51&lpg=PA51&dq=universal+preference+light+skin&source=bl&ots=w2JkUx6FFa&sig=6deAI9B4nmQGi35oiqlQtgjH6yA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiFpMWX6u7OAhULIMAKHbvWBxgQ6AEIRDAJ#v=onepage&q=universal%20preference%20light%20skin&f=false Here are some post
  4. No, it is fact that in many cultures, light skin in women was deemed more attractive due to a class thing as it indicated that she did not work out in the sun
  5. It has been shown in human history light skin has been valued
  6. Based on this, can we say men prefer fairer skin generally or not exactly?
  7. Here: http://evoandproud.blogspot.ca/2006/12/skin-color-preference-in-sub-saharan.html and this: It has been observed that adult human females are consistently lighter in skin pigmentation than males in the same population.[9] This form of sexual dimorphism is due to the requirement in human females for high amounts of calcium during pregnancy and lactation. Breastfeeding newborns, whose skeletons are growing, require high amounts of calcium intake from the mother's milk (about 4 times more than during prenatal development),[76] part of which comes from reserves in the mother's skeleton. Adequate vitamin D resources are needed to absorb calcium from the diet, and it has been shown that deficiencies of vitamin D and calcium increase the likelihood of various birth defects such as spina bifida and rickets. Natural selection has led to females with lighter skin than males in all indigenous populations because women must get enough vitamin D and calcium to support the development of fetus and nursing infant and to maintain their own health.[7] thoughts?
  8. Well, apparently on average women are lighter than males. Based on this, would it be correct to say that men prefer lighter skin?
  9. I read that women on average are lighter skinned than men, so I was wondering, are humans more inclined to be attracted to lighter skin or is it just cultural? Look at this study: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-535828/Why-men-prefer-fair-skinned-maidens-women-like-dark-handsome-strangers.html
  10. Is what is posted above with them having very dark skin accurate? In the link, they look like they have brown skin, but the post shows them with a darker complexion, so which one is more accurate?
  11. We see a lot of earthquakes happening now, so have they been increasing?
  12. After the sperm-and-ovum drop (nut.fa) has been [in the uterus] forty-two days, Allah sends it an angel that gives it form and fashions its hearing, sight, skin, flesh, and skeleton. http://www.livingislam.org/n/hfhl_e.html http://www.islamicmedicine.org/embryoengtext.htm What are thoughts on these claims?
  13. Speaking of which, how long is organogenesis? Is it 40 days or 42 days exactly? Which is more accurate, or are they both?
