Further criticism[edit source]
Studies by psychologists, starting with Gustav Fechner c. 1876, have been devised to test the idea that the golden ratio plays a role in human perception of beauty. While Fechner found a preference for rectangle ratios centered on the golden ratio, later attempts to carefully test such a hypothesis have been, at best, inconclusive
Some specific proportions in the bodies of many animals (including humans) and parts of the shells of mollusks are often claimed to be in the golden ratio. There is a large variation in the real measures of these elements in specific individuals, however, and the proportion in question is often significantly different from the golden ratio
but sometimes with the claim that each new chamber is golden-proportioned relative to the previous one. However, measurements of nautilus shells do not support this claim
More criticism[edit source]
Flesh out the statement. "So basically an attractive face/body that happens to have G.R. approximation is coincidence."
And we can add this to all to the main page.
- Yea the golden ratio seems like complete bullshit
Yea agreed with Bibipi, the golden ratio is bullshit, but whatever the concept is entertaining.

- Bullshit though it may be, it's important to have articles like this to cultivate a sense of intellectuality, pseudo- though it may be. As they say in The Postman, "If he wishes to rise above mere thuggery, a military commander must be classically educated." 2601:5CD:C200:9BE0:E00F:7619:D7B8:A2C5 20:36, 21 November 2019 (UTC)
Europe the longest period of patriarchy?[edit source]
If we were to humor Dr. Marquardt's theories the fact that real life Golden Ratio girl is a white woman implies white men have controlled their women in a patriarchy without interruption for longer than any other group of men on the planet.
This should be shortened substantially[edit source]
Given that the entire concept is largely debunked, I suggest we shorten this to a lede-only page. What does it help to detail something that is already debunked? Bibipi (talk) 20:58, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
