On our view, love is illusory. Our peers have often called it a "useful fiction," but we fail to see how it is useful. The feelings, thoughts, and impulses commonly associated with "love" are the chance byproducts of brain chemistry--nothing more. We maintain that there is no immaterial soul or mind independent from the body that is capable of examining different criteria and making a decision whether to love or not. That is because the apparent "self" is in no way separate from what is going on in his/her body. We are all just our bodies. The mind is, at best, an effect produced by physical phenomena within the body. Therefore, when a person experiences what is, in popular terms, called love, it is not something that he/she has chosen, but something that is happening to him/her. This may be disheartening to some, but the truth of the matter is that love is of no more objective value than indigestion or a runny nose. For this reason, AAM stands in fierce opposition to even the most basic conception of marriage--two people making a commitment to love one another. Since love is simply a neurological phenomenon, to suggest that one person can commit to love another is absurd--like a man vowing never to contract a cold. Those who would make such vows are simply delusional. Purely physical entities (as human beings are) can make no such meaningful commitments. We only know what is, and do not presume to know what will be. Two people may say "we feel love for one another at this present moment," but nothing more. Under such conditions, marriage becomes an utterly meaningless enterprise.
Despite opposition from rival interest groups, and discouraging feedback from locals, Treadveil says that the AAM remains committed to their cause and plan to hold several more protests in coming months. She remarked, "We will push through the tough times. We really believe in this cause and are dedicated to seeing it through to the end. Nothing will change that."
For those who are confused...google "satire."
