Not necessarily. The current life expectancy might be 60-70 years, but soon mankind will begin to break that barrier. Cancers being cured,
trans-humanism, digital backups of your brain and memory.
Its not unrealistic to believe that there are humans today that will live to be hundreds of years old. Some of those people would contemplate making
such deals in order to have financial security for that duration. If it involved making a deal with the devil, so be it.
But that only applies to people who believe in silly religions.
You know just because you don't believe in any organized Religions doesn't
mean you cannot have a soul or do not have one already.
I mean just go look up Dr. Duncan MacDougall's measurements. That was the Doctor who said the soul weighs approx 21 grams and upon death is instantly
Although yes his work may have come under fire at the time and even today, but I don't see why those people can't get it through their heads that most
terminally ill people don't want to spend their last moments on a giant scale. I would imagine they would want to be with their families instead,
hence the small sample size. I'm sure if we had a large, willing, group of volunteers who were close to death and willing to die in a controlled
setting on top of a large scale, we would probably see some sort of similar results. It puzzles me as to why modern science has never tried to confirm
or disprove this work other than just calling him out on the sample size and some process problems.
But I digress, I still believe that everyone has a soul, and if you have ever read any Psychology & Philsophy works (ie. Jung, Freud, Plato,
Aristotle, etc.) you will find that even they agree on the topic of the soul, although some use a different term (the Psyche) it is essentially the
same concept: the totality of the human mind, conscious and unconscious.
Whether you want one or not Mr.Witness, you have a Soul. Unless, of course, you already sold it to the devil
