How do you know there is no such thing as a soul, How can you make such a definite assumption.
I for one am certain I have a soul, I also have a higher self and an ego,all having their own function.
You may not have a soul and as such I feel for you, but do not declare what you cannot prove.
I also cannot prove with science, but through meditation have made a connection with my higher self and know that I myself am the soul basically the driver of the vehicle while my higher self is the navigator and my ego is my fight or flight reflex that we have all had since primitive times, my ego is what would get all metaphysical with your ass as you start to piss me off.
My higher self would later tell me that I shouldn't let my ego do my thinking for me as it only gets me into trouble.
Hence when you reply with a comment calling me nuts, I wont listen to ego and therefore accept that we all have own points of view and belief systems, so good luck on your soulless journey.

Dude, I've been meditating for 20 years and have seen things that science would have no explanation for, I am not against science but I am rabidly against those with a closed minded attitude to anything that cant be proven with science at this point in time.
Recently I believe it was theorised to be possible to travel faster than the speed of light, yet only ten years ago it was said to be impossible.
Scientists are quick to say something is impossible only to be proven wrong decades later.
Do not tell me that science can prove that souls do not exist
, it has been proven on many occasions that people can remember past lives. Proof of reincarnation. Of course you will say they are hoax's.
Allow me to tell you of a personal experience: Two years ago I drove down a street in a suburb about 20 minutes from home.
Everything in the street gave me the strongest sense of de ja vu I have ever had.
I took note of the street and suburb and mentioned it to my father over the weekend.
It turns out my Grandfather who died in 1943 was born in that street and his father had lived there for quite some time.
I had no idea previously of a family connection to that street. How could I possibly know, weeks later I had a dream with my dead Grandfather in that street in olden times and we seemed to be contempories Father/ Son
or brother, I am not sure.
But I do believe I have reincarnated in the same family line hence proof of a soul.
Until Science has a machine that can measure such things then I guess we have to agree to disagree.

I don't think you understand what this thread is about.
