Do we human have souls like religious texts prophesy? This is a question for religious people and atheists alike.
Hey Mr. Burns, I am a Syrian Orthodox Christian by baptism as my parents were born into the same religion too. I love being so. This belief of mine doesn't make me to blindly believe that if I be a christian and lead my life according to the bible I will be saved from treachery in my "afterlife". I see so many humans in my faith be good and bad characters, the same with people of other faiths or without faith too. (What is good and bad is another topic to discuss") So, assuming that GOOD (is not a questionable relative item) I believe that each religion or faith is only a way to attain NIRVANA or one to not harm other human beings / mother earth itself. So a person who is a Christian / Buddhist / Hindu for eg. does not get any extra advantage going into afterlife over any other religious or religionless person. We strive to making our soul pure and that will eventually make us lead a good life.

Paul, First of all since there being a lot of defenitions as to what a soul is I am not able to exactly define what a Soul is. However, I shall try to give an outline as to what I believe is a soul from all these years of hearing and feeling about what could be a SOUL. In my opinion a SOUL is the energy that makes us live. As in with our organs we are just a body, but its the soul that makes us think, live, make decisions etc. Essentially the brain makes these decisions in our head but the ultimate decision between mind and brain is made by the mind which is essentially the soul. This is my understanding and may not be right? Coz I have been intrigued by this question of mine, in itself.

Hello Nadav, I think the comparison of life and water is not exactly correct. Life is something you can see as a particle like water to the naked eye. So we cant see that transformation when it is trrasnferred from one vessel to another like water. Also, life is not directly proportional to water's characteristics. Yes, water may be a provider of life but that's through the body's various molecules that water is processed into life, so it cannot be directly proportional to life. So we cant have that argument either.
