    Because God is love.

    Hmmm... so God is a human emotion produced in our brains that motivates us to find mates and other companionship?

    That seems to be an unusual definition of God to me, but if it works for you, go for it.

    Al the atheists who believe in love believe in love, not in a bronze age myth but love for their partner, their child, their family, their friends, and the world around them.

    Don't you just love these people who know nothing of atheism who dictate what an atheist is?

    If you believe in Scotsmen you believe in god.

    Because god is a Scotsman.
    So all Christians are Scotsmen. . . . . . Or something like that.:confused:

    That bacon muncher just thinks he's a Scotsman. He's really a Swede who can't stand lutifisk and is trying to pull one over on his rust belt neighbors.

    Understood, but what does it mean to "believe in love"?

    It started out as one.

    Jesus hates me. That's why He made me gay. So all His true followers would hate me too.

    No one is trolling. There is discussion based (however tangentially) on your rather strange OP

    Please don't try to co-opt the concept of love or to define someone else's beliefs for them. Not unless you want the same in return.
    Could have fooled me.

    Probably why there's hardly any Christians.

    If you can't use Christian Scripture to beat up your fellow man, why bother?
