Gandalf Playing Bagpipes Riding a Unicycle in Portland

“No Hobbit spoilers! No Hobbit spoilers!”

joshfjelstad:

After a year of unsuccessfully attempting to convince my parents to let me get a Nintendo 64, I finally brought in the heavy artillery: a strongly worded letter to my dad. (Note the indiscriminate use of CAPS and the deal-sealer: beautiful WordArt.)

I was a proud N64 owner a week later. (And still am.)

What science offers for explaining the feelings we experience when believing in God or falling in love is complementary, not conflicting; additive, not detractive. I find it deeply interesting to know that when I fall in love with someone my initial lustful feelings are enhanced by dopamine, a neurohormone produced by the hypothalamus that triggers the release of testosterone, the hormone that drives sexual desire, and that my deeper feelings of attachment are reinforced by oxytocin, a hormone synthesized in the hypothalamus and secreted into the blood by the pituitary. Further, it is instructive to know that such hormone-induced neural pathways are exclusive to monogamous pair-bonded species as an evolutionary adaptation for the long-term care of helpless infants. We fall in love because our children need us! Does this in any way lessen the qualitative experience of falling in love and doting on one’s children? Of course not, any more than unweaving a rainbow into its constituent parts reduces the aesthetic appreciation of the rainbow.
