Well, almost beyond doubt. For a few brave scientists have started claiming that our memories and characters are encoded not just in our brain, but throughout our entire body.
Consciousness, they claim, is created by every living cell in the body acting in concert.
They argue, in effect, that our hearts, livers and every single organ in the body stores our memories, drives our emotions and imbues us with our own individual characters. Our whole body, they believe, is the seat of the soul;

Oddly enough there may be a slight truth to this I remember reading a news story about a elder lady who got a lung transplant and when she woke up she had a irresistible desire for McDonalds chicken nuggets even though she hated McDonalds food.
But she kept having these cravings anyway she got curious about who the person was that died and donated their lungs and after going through all kinds of legal hoops, She found out that it was a teenage boy who was killed while riding his bike home after he went to McDonalds for you guessed it Chicken Nuggets the poor kid didn't get a chance to even eat them.

An afterlife without a God? yeah, gluck with that one. The body is not the soul. All the energy built up, whatever that means, is not the soul. So no, that isn't transplanting a human soul.

I've thought about this before and I can only come to the conclusion that the blood is the medium for the soul, but it makes just as much sense that every organ in the body also takes part in that delivery. I think of the brain like a tape head, like that inside of a cassette player, with the blood being like the tape. Your blood is made up of mostly Iron and has vast magnetic properties. The chemical cursers from emotions good or bad could "stripe" the blood for lack of a better term there by encoding experience into the blood. This could be why blood is such an important substance to religion.
