But look up a real picuture of a dead person and then compare it to one made up in a movie no matter how well it is done. There is still a difference.
Also take a dead animal. For some strange reason it doesn't have that empty look. Is this because we consider it less traumatic to see a dead animal compared to a human? I don't know. Maybe I see things differently being a christian.
Given the sophistication of the human body from the atomic level on up there is no way we could have just evolved. No evolving species has ever been seen or a fossil of an evolving species ever been found.
Problem is I work with several atheists who don't belive these things. They don't even belive people have a soul.
If we have no soul why does a body that is dead look empty? Even if the body isn't mangled you can tell there is no life in it. Take someone sleeping. They don't look the same. Take an animal that is dead. Why doesn't it have that same vacated look a person does?

...they say that at the moment of death you loose 21 ounces, maybe that is your soul exiting your body
MacDougall's results were flawed because the methodology used to harvest them was suspect, the sample size far too small, and the ability to measure changes in weight imprecise. For this reason, credence should not be given to the idea his experiments proved something, let alone that they measured the weight of the soul as 21 grams.
