Lily: When people say believing in God is not intelligent, they seem to be implying that science should be the only frame of reference we use to understand the world. Religion adds all these other elements to my perspective, like purpose, hope and forgiveness, and things being possible even if they seem IMpossible.
Simon: You can have all that stuff WITHOUT religion, though.
Lily: I know, but we have to think outside of the scientific paradigm to fully embrace it, and to trust each other and have healthy social bonds. Some people say love is just a chemical reaction, but how can you have meaningful relationships with that mentality?
Simon: Love is definitely more than a chemical reaction. There are several physiological responses it could involve, depending on your definition of love.
