    I hate to be annoying, especially since I still agree with the conclusion, but…

    The pain response felt from a strike to the testicles is a nerve response, not a chemical one. And the feeling you get from being struck there is a pain response due to physical contact. That is, it’s tangible in a way that the pain felt from heartbreak is not. And that’s not even a fair analogy since the feeling of love we feel is an abstract notion brought on by a chemical response, and isn’t always reproducible the way pain from a strike to the scrotum is (it always hurts to get hit there).

    Again, I agree with the conclusion. It IS annoying when someone tries to diminish a person’s feelings when they say “it’s just a chemical response; therefore, it’s not real.” When someone says that, I want to kick them in the balls, too.

    you cant classify something as “non-existant” because its a chemical reaction. Smoke is a chemical reaction yet it is very real. If you classify love as nonexistent, you classify real things such as metabolism and rust as “nonexistent” as well and both of these are real.
