Not a single religious person I know (and I know quite a few from a broad spectrum of faiths) will assert that the chemical component of love does not exists.

Of course, the observations are not perfect, as they are limited by experimental errors, both systematic and random. That doesn't mean the observations are bad. It just means that they have limitations, of which scientists are aware. These limitations mean that the conclusions are also not perfect.
Scientists will hardly ever give you "the right answer". Instead, they'll say things like "its likely that", or "it's probable
