    Yeah I said leave the bible stuff out of this.

    I wrote the original post BTW and I know it wasn't about religion.

    Your vocabulary is 100% about religion. Vanity doesn't mean wanting to look beautiful. It means emptiness, futility of earhtly pursuits. I provided Quora explanation.
    So don't use Bible vocabulary without mentioning that you're talking about sin of emptiness(vanity).

    Wanting to look beautiful is not vanity. Vanity is not a word meaning wanting to look beautiful.

    You can't ask people in 2018 something so stupid.
    Vanity means conceit. http://www.sirc.org/publik/mirror.html

    In every other context vanity means pursuing earthly things and sect of Christianity hates earthly things they deem them vanity (emptiness) and it's a totally idotic world view so note your posts to be sect of Christianity ones when writing such Middle Age vocabulary in 2018.

    I don't see anything wrong in usage of Bible terms out of religion context.

    Jesus didn't patent that words.

    Wanting to be beautiful is connected with self perception, people self perceive themselves through their bodies, they form self image that directly affects both self confidence and even behavior. As such wanting to be beautiful can in no way be in the same sentence as emptiness (vanity.)

    Vanity is not a synonim for wanting to be beautiful.

    Vanity means conceit or in the sect of Christianity's book Bible it means futility.

    I'm just using the Oxford dictionaries definition - this is surreal.

    You have a comprehension problem.
    Your interpretation of vanity is clearly different then that of @JohnsonDDG.

    Also... stop writing long posts! You will never be Rudiger.

    Which defines vanity as CONCEIT, not general wish to look beautiful.

    Vanity is defined as excessive PRIDE in you abilities, achievements or appearance. WHICH MEANS CONCEIT!

    Maybe after a millionth time you'll get it. who knows, time is infinite...let's see.

    https://www.quora.com/If-vanity-is-...ccess-Is-that-what-excessive-pride-stands-for

    Copying from answer : "Excessive pride occurs when you overvalue your assets and achievements, which usually leads to vanity. This is not the belief that you can accomplish more than others (unlike arrogance), but the belief that you are better than others thanks to what you have or do.

    If you believe that your beauty, for example, makes you better than an ugly person, you are vain. If you are proud of how beautiful you are, but remember that it does not make you better or worse than anyone else, then you are proud without being excessively proud."

    "Vanity" actually means the feeling of being offended because a friend or family member of yours is having a much better life than you.

    A person being angry about what he or she doesn't have in life is usually described as vanity.
    And sometimes "sour grapes."

    Hope that clears things up a bit.
