That might be enough to see the common perception.
It looks like most people are against to this statement.

So is moving but we still have a good handle on what it means and can fairly accurately measure its occurrence.
Love is abstract term. Its a verb.
It's pretty strong corrolation between the mechanics of the brain and the output it has on the body. A set of chemical responses only occur when a person claims to be feeling love. When those chemicals in that mixture don't happen, the person isn't experiencing love. Therefore those neurotransmitters are the cause of and form of love.
We can see differences in brain activation from different emotions. We can see evidence if love just as easily as that of fear or any other emotion. If you need proof, look into the study by Andreas Bartels and Semir Zaki called The Neural Correlates of Maternal and Romantic Love.
None of the above proves the existence of love though, just shows that you have strong emotions toward somebody, not specifically love
There was a study in 2010 in California I believe, which quantified love using brain scans etc... We also know that there is a complex biochemical component to love. So we know that it exists and how it works.
We can't say the same about God though, so this is an argument of false analogy.
We can quantitatively measure activation in the brain when looking at a loved one versus a stranger or acquaintance. We can see the difference between what parts of the brain are active, and how active. We can see, scientifically, the difference between someone looking at a person they love and someone they don't.
