….where does love come from?
If there is no God, where does love come from? And what is it? If you can only believe in things that can be proven how do you prove love?
Or right and wrong?
Why do we have human values? Where did they come from?
And beauty – what on earth is that all about? I understand how it can be advantageous as a species to feel some sense of attraction for each other. But sunsets? How does that help? Or flowers, rainbows, stars, waterfalls, rolling hills, majestic mountains. Why would we develop a sense of awe at all? What advantage is there in that? I get that there is an evolutionary advantage in finding babies cute, but kittens and puppies? How does that help? Surely kittens and puppies would grow up into cats and dogs and in the wild they aren’t good news at all. How does it help us to protect them? How did evolution produce a species that likes baby animals, including animals that are potentially dangerous?
And music. And art. And dance. Why?
Where does love come from? If it isn’t from God then I just don’t know.
But I certainly know what it looks like.
