Thank you for the link.
From the link, it seems this doctor was not in the slightest what I would consider "reliable", nor of sound moral character to be in anyway privy to
the nature of the soul, seeing as its speculated he was poisoning dogs to get them to die on his scale.
These two things stand out the most:
MacDougall's results are generally regarded as false, due to the flawed methodology used in the tests. All attempts to reproduce the results with
better methodologies and equipment have failed
Nonetheless, MacDougall's finding that presumably the human soul weighed 21 grams has become a meme in the public consciousness, mostly due to its
claiming the titular thesis in the 2003 film 21 Grams.
been reproduced? 200,000 people die per day
, and its been over 100 years since this claim was fielded... and its NEVER
Yeah... I think its safe to say that the soul being a weighty sentient gas as insinuated by this supposed doctor is absolutely bogus.
See, "BobAthome", when you dont ask for evidence, you end up saying things like "It's a fact that there is 2 oz. un-accounted for a death"... when in
fact its not a fact... but at most a false meme propagated by other people who dont ask for evidence to support wild claims either (trusting random
strangers on the internet instead, most likely), who then show up on ATS and start stating said wild claims as facts themselves, perpetuating the
vicious cycle of... well, idiocy, to be frank.
Do not believe any "fact" stated on the internet (or anywhere else) unless it can be corroborated with actual evidence pointing to that fact as
actually being a fact, people. We live in an age of LIES and ILLUSIONS.
Never take anything stated as fact at face value.
