The first thing that I need to make clear is that there is only one thing atheists have in common and that is a non belief in god. Other than that there is no common belief set so I can only answer your question personally. Yes, I believe in love,
but if you are going down road of saying you can't see love and can't prove love, but you know it exists and this is how Christians know God exists, then I think you are on the wrong track.
Love is an emotion, the same as anger and chemical changes in the body can be observed. Have a look at this link:http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/hottopics/love/
Are you experiencing love 24/7 ? if not you are believing or worse.... have faith in love when it is not in your experience.
Chemical changes are... chemical changes.
Do you love your parents? Do they love you? You have screwed up many times in your life. Did they still love you during or after you messed up? If not, you didn't have any parents and you evolved straight from a monkey.
Also, I was informed by someone here that you must LOVE bananas...
Ok, I'm responding to you again here because you made these deepest cutting remarks at the deepest personal level. So lets get the personal stuff out there, the way you are intent on having it.
Both my parents have passed away, Mum 21 years ago at age 54 from spine and rib cancer, she died in excruciating pain, the type pain medications did NOTHING for. As I live in another country I didn't get home to see her, because my Dad's advice was to remember her the way she was. She lost 5cm in height when her spine collapsed. A short 5 weeks from diagnosis is all it took.
My Dad passed away 11 years ago this month. This time though I got home for 2 weeks to see him. Every morning I brought him home from the hospice to spend time with him in his own home and every evening I brought him back to the hospice to be pumped with meds, he was dying from throat cancer. This was the best and strangely the closest 2 weeks I had ever spent with my Dad and I am still grateful to this day for that. !0 days after returning to my own family he died after slipping into a coma when the secondary tumour in his neck closed of blood supply to his brain.
Maybe you don't like or understand my posts, does that give you the right to make it this personal. Its about religion and different views about it and life.
I tell you all I did not want to write this stuff here, not my choice at all.
Don't forget to run spell and grammar check over it and report back. I write warts and all, nothing fake about my posts.
Thanks G.I. Jim, I'm not going to stoop to your level and write what I think of you right now.
