Love without God. How is this possible?

3 years, 2 months ago

Not another thread about God!
It is a pretty relevant topic, and I have a burning question that I didn’t want to hi-jack another thread with.
It seems to me that many people equate God with love; they are co-dependent. I believe, like many of you, that "love" is the key to personal fulfilment, as well as the path to follow to create balance within the world.
My question is; do you see love and God as inseperable? If so, how is it that I, as a non-believer, can come to the same conclusion about love?
Or//
Is love a universal truth that exists without God? (my opinion)
Or//
Am I part of the love/God triangle and just too biased /closed /stupid /stubborn to realize it?
Or//
Is there both God and love, but nothing linking the two?
Or//…….?
