i respectfully disagree, my dear Linda. true logic cannot vary. either one of them has it wrong or both of them.

there is not one aspect of love that i have ever incountered (personal experience or otherwise) that would make me believe it is so mytical and out of the realm of biological and social sciences. i'm not saying that love doesn't exist, or that it isn't beautiful. what i'm saying is that it can be described in different terms. scientific terms, to be more accurate.
Do you feel that love could come from the intellect rather than just the old hormones and reproductive drive?

I would say there are 3 types of love. Love for
Attachemnt
Sexual Attraction
Commitment

Sexual attraction to ensure reproduction.
Attachemnt so vuneralbe infants have greater chance to survive
Commitment so two parents can help in infants survival.
