Exactly. My claim is that there does not exist a proof of the existence of Love (reason why you believe love exist) that can't be applied to God.And this is your problem: what you say might be true but, if it is, it means that “God” is personal to each person and exists only in their mind.
It could be a linguistic problem. In English, “Love” is known as “an abstract noun”: it describes something that is intangible. In this case a feeling or an emotion.
Feelings and emotions have no real existence – they cannot be put, for example into a bottle or box.
Because abstract nouns have no real existence it is not possible to have anything other than a personal and subjective idea of their actual nature. Any attempt to describe your particular feeling of “Love” is therefore impossible, as your listener will have differing reference points
If your assertion is true, then God is not real but is only in your imagination, or, as we say in English, imaginary.
Congratulations Luk, you may be the first Catholic to show that God is imaginary.
We agree Graybeard.
If Love is not real but is only in your imagination, or, as we say in English, imaginary.
God is not real but is only in your imagination, or, as we say in English, imaginary.
Will you now stop saying that you love your closest (children/wife/girlfriend/whoever you love) as it is a lie because love is only in your imagination? Will you?
