This is a question I have for those who believe in science but not God.

Can you believe in Science and Love?

Or is Love only chemical / electrical impulses in our brains?
Which is still love. This question is rather non-sequitur.

Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides.

That is because love is a drug (oxytocin). It is made in the mind. When you are first in love the brain makes a lot of it; after a couple of years it lessens. So that "closeness" has to keep being re-discovered in order to bring that drug (love/oxytocin) back.

Even a simple hug can trigger it, but when it comes to a love it takes more and more for most people.

When a person is having withdrawal symptoms from love/oxytocin they may experience loneliness and jealousy.

"But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil." - Luke 6:35
