    Love is a man found belief, just like God.

    Love is instinctive for a herd or clan or group mammal. It is a chemical reaction of the human mind (and dog mind, and cats, elephants, primates, etc.).

    But that doesn't mean that it isn't something very, if not vitally important, and special. And for human beings who have the ability to reason and think abstractly, its something very unique and powerful. It can lift a person to a new level of existence and inspire humans to create works of incredible beauty and ingenuity.

    What kills me are religious people who love their long-deceased mythical creators and saviors more than their spouses, parents, and even children.

    Does one have to believe in it to experience it?

    you're kidding right?

    love is knowing what one FEELS inside.

    belief in G-d is acceptance of the existence of something supernatural that can't be proven and relies only on faith.

    and before you call me an atheist, i'm not.

    but if you want to play an analytical reasoning game, you need to set up your conditional statements better.

    maybe this will help:

    I don't think so, but once you do experience it you will believe in it.

    so if someone believes inside that there are little green men around him, then there are little green men around him?

    please try again.
