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?
Actually it pretty much can, and will be able to completely in the very near future. Hate to break it to you but when you "love" someone there are a special set of chemicals and neural pathways your brain utilizes that we are getting pretty good at analyzing.
The main chemical culprits are phenylethylamine, norepinephrine, dopamine, oxytocin, testosterone, and endorphins.
