That's backwards, we use the word "love" to describe a feeling that most
of us agree is pleasant. The FMRI can image the part of the brain that
is active, and we know the neurotransmitters involved. So that part of
the emotion is not in question. I would guess this question could apply
to any emotion, right?

I must admit that the early part of the Universe's history is difficult
to conceive of, for me anyways. I don't have trouble with "life from
none living matter though". Why do you have trouble with that?
