Are souls real?
Your soul is your live force within you while you are alive. When you die it dies with you. Only Jesus himself keeps track of those souls lost/died in his name to be resurrected at the appropriate time. Jesus never loses track of his faithful flock.
A soul is the ego's invention because it can't imagine not existing after death
Tfw you see democrats have no souls
When your soul aches, you'll know it exists...
They are simply immaterial.
for us it is...can't speak for the walkers though...they're just animals
I'm am saved, so I believe there is a soul!
I like to think I am something more than just my body.
I believe in a form of a soul...
Odd angle for an atheist... Or so I used to think.
I know with absolute certainty that a skinny legged woman ain't got one!
I am Christian, so yes.
Does this mean that there is concrete evidence either way?
No, it is based on your personal beliefs and interpretation of the world.
But based off my interpretation God has been proven real for me, and so by extention, souls.
Seems like most people's thought of the soul in this thread is nothing more than their ego on a pedestal. Like one person said, let's define what a soul is first then work from there.
They are real but not to the sense we are accustomed. You can't feel, hear, spell or touch your soul. But if you truly believe with your heart your soul will flourish. It is one of the wonders of life and eternity.
Yes, but they're likely not what you think they are.
The way I see it, a soul is, quite simply, you. I don't see a way that people can be so neurologically the same and act so differently. There has to be another explanation as to what makes you who you are. Souls exist.
In fact soul is a combination of electric signal......
They'd better be real or soul food is a lie!
Souls make us feel good so people want to believe.
I'd like to see the answers to the question "Do other animals have souls?" to see the differences in opinion. Human exclusive souls have to be the most ridiculous idea that i have ever heard of yet so many people think this could be a real thing.
Sold mine to the devil
What did you get for it?
The soul is the animating principle of the body. Of course we have souls!
Apparently Democrats really are soulless.
Ah, nothing says inclusive like the Republican Party.
Everyone is, technically.
I believe in souls. Whether they are of natural origin (the brain/nervous system) or "spiritual" non-natural origin, I have absolutely no idea. But nonetheless, that core humanness within virtually all humans is a thing, and I call it a soul.
sure. I love soul food
I believe in science & I believe in the supernatural.
That's not a stretch.
If supernatural doesn't exist its a flat, dark, shallow, depressing world. I prefer to believe there's more here than we are capable of understanding.
Same here, but even if souls have a supernatural component, they are not exclusively supernatural.
I just don't believe you can prove or disprove the supernatural with a slide rule.
Obviously not. The supernatural is definitionally beyond the realm of natural measurement.
Casper, I like that you said you "prefer"to believe because there's nothing wrong with that. Its comforting. I agree.
EB: its a wonderful, beautiful, inspiring, frightening, awesome world & beyond.
It's better this way.
How was the storm the other night? Any damage?
Other than being without power for 24 hours, all was fine. Ty for asking ;)
Souls are our Spirits and Body combined. We wouldn't be walking around without a soul.
Actually we wouldn't be walking around without a musculoskeletal system.
A human without a soul just lays there in an apparent coma.
Actually people with severe head trauma or brain damage lay around in comas.
They lie around in actual comas. What would you expect a human body without a mind, will, or emotions to do? Even lawyers have minds, even zombies have wills, and even liberals have emotions!
They're a real idea... Man, these results are disturbing!!
Comments too :(
Yeah, even with a reasonable explanation of what souls are, being spiritual in nature, and man-made, immeasurable, abstract, etc, some people... Some dumb ass people...
Souls are real and just because it hasn't been proven, doesn't make it not true.
I believe that there is a teapot so small that no equipment can detect it. It revolves around the Earth halfway to the moon. Do you have any evidence that this teapot does not exist? If not, then I am justified in believing it does.
JenLOG I can't tell if you are in agreement or trying to mock.
I don't joke about hypothetical teapots.
^this guy. The burden of proof is on you JenLog to prove that a soul exists
I don't think souls exist. I made that very clear.
Souls are real because roundsquare says so.
Lol James: you must not understand the idea behind pointing out the burden of proof.. Burden of proof is a flaw in logic. You need proof that X is or disproof that X isn't...
Doopy ur a pussy I'm going to make more money than u when I'm an a adult I'm am going to be a pharmacist I'm going to open my own pharmacy one day and I'm make investments in buissnes I'm going to be a millionaire
Okay, and that makes all of your poor understanding of the subject at hand right, and my comprehensive understanding wrong because why? Argumentum ad hominem?
Using big words doesn't make u smart
No, but having big thoughts does, and usually the best way to communicate big thoughts with a character limit are a few big words.
Not really a fair fight, though. Cold's brain at 13 (and apparently,his soul, grammar/usage knowledge, humility, grasp on wealth-building principles,) have not caught up with the growth of his ego. I think he should check back with Doopy in 20 years.
Your not smarter than me soppy my iq is 150 but I'm only 13 and when I think of religion
I think of religion when I hear soul
Well, I am smarter than you. And more than twice as old and wise.
If you're IQ is so high you'd think you would be able to tell the difference between your and you're.
I don't give a fuck a bout grammar I'm good at science and math
The trolls took this one young...
Don't feed the troll
What properties does a soul have that a brain doesn't or what properties of me can't be explained by what we know about the rain?
You don't have a soul u have a Brain
What properties does SoH have that an iPhone or Android does not?
Is that supposed to be a series question? SOH is an app that is dowloaded to the phone. If this is supposed to be some kindergarten theology then how come your brain seems to be indistinguishable from the soul in that the rain determines
It's serious. Souls are intangible. Brains are tangible.
Things like anger, lust, etc. these things are often called sin which must be brought by a soul right? They are components of the brain. Furthermore, what makes one soul good and another bad? Did god make them good or bad? Free will makes no sense
They are "components of the brain"?
How much does an anger weigh? What happens if you have two of them?
I think the intended word was mind, not brain. Regardless, souls are abstract. That being said, they're also immeasurable. No evidence of such an existence. You believe you have a mind because you can imagine, you 'hear' yourself think..
You can't however actively address a 'soul', you can't imagine with your soul, you can't hear your soul, taste your soul, etc. it's a concept not based in any way on human anatomy or physiology.
With the concept of a 'soul' having roots in religion, and it's lack of biological links, it stands to reason that it is purely spiritual in nature. If something is spiritual or religious in origin, it exists only as part of an ideology
^ likely as part of indoctrination..
What if there are magic pixies in my head or an intergalactic counsel of Klingons? Oh, because there is no evidence for it! If we modify a part of our brain something in our personality or experience changes...
You don't know what a soul is. Souls are mind, will, and emotion packages. When you reason or imagine with your mind, you reason or imagine with your soul.
Oh brother. Souls are minds, wills, and emotions. Do any of those things exist?
That's what ur Brain is people that are religious think your soul is the so called part that Gos to heaven
No, your brain is not a mind, your brain is not a will, your brain is not a set of emotions. Your brain is an organic computer that runs that "software". That "software" is a soul.
Your mind is part of your brain
Oh really? Which part? Is it frontal or basal? Left or right lobe? Cortical or deep brain?
All of them
I've never heard of the deep brain
So it's not part.
I get deep brain on the regular
Atheist, by way of smells, fears, or temperature regulation?
Delusion: An idiosyncratic belief or impression that is firmly maintained despite being contradicted by what is generally accepted as reality or rational argument, typically a symptom of mental disorder.
#soul #jesuslover #god #jesus
Then subscribing to the nonexistence of souls is clearly a delusion.
Also, so is using hashtags in SoH.
Wait, you're talking about delusions as an argument in *favor* of souls??
No. I'm saying anyone who disbelieved in souls is under an obvious delusion.
Do you disbelieve in souls, Kermie?
I'm asking the OP. They gave what seemed to be the perfect argument against believing in souls and then did a 180.
Of course I "disbelieve" in souls. What is there to believe?
Well, you disprove yourself. A soul is a mind, will, and emotion package. If there is a "you" to disbelieve in a soul, that is a soul doing the disbelieving, and making itself wrong.
I don't think your description is what most people mean when they talk about souls.
I think it necessarily is, but most don't realize it. When people imagine themselves in heaven, they imagine their minds, their will, their emotions, their essential selfhood, in heaven.
Sure--as part of an eternal entity. But those things exist merely as synapses in the brain.
That's just disagreement over the nature of souls that are agreed to exist.
What does soul even mean? Let's start there.
It means minds, wills, and emotions.
It's also called the consciousness, yes.
When you die you cease to exist 71% of people are conformists and to scared to face reality
When you die, WHAT ceases to exist? Your dead body is still there.
Don't be a smart ass dumbass
Gee, sorry for being smarter than you, but that's not really my fault.
The question still stands. What ceases to exist? Even if you believe souls cease when the body dies, you believe in souls.
Scared to face reality? Which reality might instill more fear: that of oblivion after cessation of brain function, or the possibility that one may have worshipped a deity incorrectly for their entire life, then will therefore be cast into
I think they are in a figurative sense, it's what makes you you
I have two between me and the floor at this moment.
But if there's a "you" to have soles, there's a soul.
Yup, this poll represents Murica well
No, souls aren't real but who cares. They feel real and as long I'm living on earth, I will continue to enjoy the feeling of my soul. :)
Weren't you in Michigan?!
I sure hope so
I dont know.
Why need souls when you have a brain?
I say yes because I'd like to think souls are real but I'm too much of a see it to believe it person.
Is anything real? Far as I know, I'm the only thing that's "real."
You are venturing dangerously close to solipsism, my friend
I know exactly what I'm venturing into! It's an interesting concept.
It is real. We know every ingredient to make humans, and no one has been able to make them live. They have made clones of animals but they use already living products of animals to make them.
Yes I believe they're real
I do not think such a thing exists.
