When I said produced I didn't mean created from thin air and I even mentioned CHEMICAL processes. Raw materials (food) go in and our body uses them to produce energy.
Christianity teaches that when your body is dead something called the spirit or soul lives on, there's no good evidence for this of any kind. Everything about who you are is in your brain and consciousness is an emergent property of brain function near as we can tell... there is nothing to suggest the existence of a soul or that it could continue after bodily and brain death.
I was a bit surprised you said produced, which I assumed, wrongly, that meant it was made from thin air. Thank you for clarifying, makes sense now, sorry (perhaps I should use the dictionary more often). So what you are saying is that there is no scientific (or other) evidence for a soul, and our thoughts are caused simply (or actually very complicatedly) by chemical reactions. Once those chemical reactions finish, we die, and no longer exist. I believe, as a Christian, that every person has a soul, and the soul does not die when your earthly body dies.
