There is no evidence of a soul or of god.

There isn’t really any proof of them not existing either.

We don’t HAVE a soul. We ARE a soul. We have a body.

Being a believer, this is a strange poll result. I kinda had the feeling the majority of SOH were materialistic naturalists. Guess i was wrong.

I have absolutely no idea why anyone would believe that these things exist.

Because Christ tells us we do. Of course if you are an atheist, your entire life is one of darkness.

Oh, yeah. Our lives are so very dark and miserable because we don't listen to the Magic Book and the almighty Sky Daddy.

Your lives are dark because you don’t know the TRUTH.

The truth that can only be found in the magic book? The truth with no verifiable evidence? That truth?

"God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul."
That pretty well settles it.

Correct, I was saying that holy text does not prove souls’ existence/lack thereof

“I was saying that holy text does not prove souls’ existence/lack thereof”

Correct. The Bible/Jesus simple tells us that souls exist and that Heaven AND HELL are very real places. (Jesus spoke more about HELL than He did Heaven) It is the work of the Holy Spirit that brings us that understanding.

No one's given me a great definition as to what a soul is, so I don't know. I'm gonna say "no" though.

No one has ever offered and evidence that suggests souls exist, and no one has yet even offered a reasonable argument why they must or should, much less a rational explanation of their nature or origin. Or why some critters have them, and other critters do not, for that matter. So at this point in time, that’s a solid no.

I've looked as much as anyone. It’s not possible to find what is not there. If anyone has evidence that souls exist, or can think of a good reason why they must exist, I'm open to learning about it.

But Zod how can you ignore a collection of fairytales in a really old book that’s been changed hundreds of times if not thousands to suit the needs of whoever is running the religion???

Yes it’s all of us and that which makes us us. It can’t be explained. But there are many layers of this world that cannot be.

I don’t think that souls exist in any of the traditional senses or really at all. The only argument I could see accepting would be defining a souls as the abstract characteristics that define our individuality, but I prefer to think of that as an extension of personality.

I like to think there’s more to human existence than our physical being. Then again, want living entity wouldn’t? I do believe in the duality of man even though there is little, if any evidence of such.

If food can have a soul, then people can.

I like to think of it in the ancient greek sense; as an abstract symbol of conciousness and emotion. Not something that exists physically, but more along the lines of an idea, like the concepts of love or morality. So sort of?

There's no evidence that the brain is responsible for consciousness either. Scientists have been able to identify areas of the brain associated with consciousness but have yet to understand how they create consciousness.

Souls aren’t real, physical, things.
Our brains give us the feeling of “soul”.

If souls aren't real, then how can "you" feel anything? What are "you"? A series of chemical reactions cannot generate consciousness.

Yeah, I think so. Or perhaps it's like the concept of luck. Real, but paradoxically unreal. Because luck could be described as probability, just as the soul could be described as someone's persona.

Yeah, and what is that when you look into someone’s eyes and feel a connection? I think it’s souls making the connection. Of course, if someone is blind, then touch is how you feel the connection.
