← Loving Christians respond to atheists

Interesting that you bring up the concept of love. Scientifically speaking, how old is love? 10,000 years? A million? A billion? 4.6 billion? Was the universe full of the concept of love when it went "Boom, Boom"? Does science consider the formation of the universe as a loving or hateful event? Did love develop at the universe's "conception" or in the "third tri-mester"? Does love make the world go round?
Are the lower primates more loving than Democrats? Republicans? Communists? Athiests? Has science discovered the exact source of love? Does it come from water? Rocks? WalMart? Exactly what is the size of love? A square foot? A mile? Is it everlasting? Is it unconditional?

Science needs to devote much more time and effort to find out the exact dimensions of love. It will certainly raise scientists' esteem with the general public, especiallly after the global warming scandal that has tarnished so many reputations. Maybe all these fellows need is more love.

But I guess this accomplishment will never occur. Sad. After all, love can't be measured by the five senses, can it? So why do some scientists believe in this strange concept? Do some of you guys actually get married? Not very logical. Mr. Spock would never make that mistake.

By the way, the previous writers of this thread obviously forgot to read the posting rules. Kind of a little "flamey" if you ask me. Seems to be a lack of love involved. Perhaps, scientifically speaking, a pill can be developed in this regard. There certainly is a market for it on your website.

I'm also interested to know that this website is now seen in Turkey. Hope your life insurance is paid up. Because once that world-famous group known for their love, the Muslims, read the opinions on this site, you'll find out first hand how their comments and actions differ from Christians'.
