Well, I'm glad you've shared your belief that there is no soul - but just because I can't show you a soul doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
Ask me to show you X-rays. I can't. Here's what I can tell you though;
"We're going to shine this invisible light on you. A bunch of invisible lines will go through you, passing right through your skin without touching
any of it. Some of your bones will be hit though, and will absorb the X-Rays. But other than that, it'll pass right through you as if you, or they,
weren't even there."
Now, I can prove they exist by taking out the piece of film on the other side and showing how, where the X-rays didn't pass through, there's your
bones and/or other things.
But take Neutrinos. They were only theoretical particles, until the theory allowed for an experiment that could detect them. Now we've been able to
barely detect them and prove the theory right.
So, how can I show you a soul? I can't. I can say that it affects you, but I don't really know how. I may be right, I may be wrong - but the lack of
proof of its existance is not proof of its non-existance.
Some people do seem to think it's a little wisp of energy that goes up to heaven. Maybe that's right, maybe that's wrong. Personally, I think the
soul is a life-form existing in the 4th dimension, that can only interact with others through the manipulation of the 3rd dimension (stuck to it like
an anchor). When the body dies, the soul is free to travel through all dimensions as it will, to explore the universe and possible universes. It may
even find a new body and anchor itself to it. However, the mind and the soul are seperate - since the mind is made from neural connections. The soul,
having some presence in the 3-d world, can only give little nudges to the mind.
That's my theory. Perhaps there is something like heaven, perhaps not, but the childish portions of our beliefs does not preclude the existance of
the entire belief.
