    Faith: Re: The soul does not exist

    But that does not show that the odds of the soul existing, based on what's presented in this debate, is anything other than 50/50.

    All the "you are God" scenario shows is that we CAN use things...

    Faith: Re: The soul does not exist

    And the answer is "maybe" which means that it's possible that we may discover evidence that the soul does not exist in the future.

    Let's be clear. I am, assume, responding to an argument that...

    And I'm glad you admit that you don't have a clue of where the line would be drawn and therefore have no support that they won't stop until they've made the US like Cuba or whatever.

    The only relevant "level" we need to address is the level of whether I have supported my argument that it's possible that we can discover evidence that the soul does not exist.

    The typical description of the soul is that it is contained within the body and exits it upon death, which is why the NDE experience, if proven to be valid, would be evidence of the soul existing...

    The example of it being proven that the brain generates consciousness is a logically coherent example of how it’s possible to discover evidence against the soul’s existence.

    Okay. I will support premise 1 with a logic chain.

    I agree that breaking such a law would be morally justifiable.
