Sometimes when an argument is that '3rd grade' it takes me off my game, so to speak. Kinda like debating with Ray Comfort...when the argument is so silly that it boggles the mind.
I was left somewhat speechless when i heard this... that i failed to have any real comeback.
Curious, What would you Atheists have said in this situation?
Love is an emotion. It is learned/acquired later in life though demonstration. So, it's not up to science to prove or disprove it, it's completely subjective and up to the individual to decide if those words are simply excited utterances or backed up by reality.
