Love is patient, love is kind … wait a minute — if you don’t believe in a God/s, how can you explain love?

In honor of February 14th (a day also known as Valentine’s Day), we’ll explore what it means to love when you’re without a deity or belief in the supernatural. We’ll talk about some of the biology and neuroscience behind these romantic impulses of ours, and will then discuss whether or not we’re less capable of appreciating this affection since we can’t give it an other-worldly transcendence.

We’ll also revisit the issue of the role of rituals and traditions in a secular life.

Here are a few things to read/listen/watch in anticipation:
