      And the greatest mystery of them all is that so many think they know for a fact that there is a soul. Like the existence of a god, something you can not know with certainty.

        I am a soul. I prove it by keyboarding. By thinking. By doing. By having awareness. Where does consciousness come from?
        The soul.

          Unfortunately you can't know that. It's something you believe but for which you have no evidence. None of the things you mentioned necessitate a soul and certainly none of them prove it exists. You should just admit to yourself that it is a belief and something you hope is true. But you can't know with certainty. That's an honest way to look at it, and being honest with ourselves is rather important if we are looking for truth, rather than assume we already have it.

              But it is not a fact. If you have proof I'd like to see it. If you don't then it is just a belief on your part, not a fact.

            All you have done is voice your own beliefs here, but are you certain? 

            If you are certain, please explain how you can be.

            If your not certain, how can you claim your view as above others, or any more than simply another belief?

              I'm not claiming to believe anything about the matter. I'm stating facts. My opinion is that there probably is no soul. But I don't know that to be a fact anymore than anyone knows for a fact that souls exist. The issue is that people believe souls to be a fact and yet have no tangible proof of them.

                My sense of I is awareness which comes from my soul.
                But, each to their own. For you, you cannot perceive what others perceive.

                  Slarty O'Brianposted 3 years agoin reply to this

                  Your sense of I is due to your heightened awareness as a human. I'm not clear on what your soul does. See if you are still aware without a brain. Hospitals are full of people who due to brain malfunction or damage no longer have a sense of self. Explain that in the context of a soul?

                  I can perceive what others perceive and I do. But I have a different answer as to how to interpret what we perceive than you do. Each to their own for sure, but isn't that just saying you aren't interested in challenging your own interpretations of what you perceive?

                  I've always maintained that I do not care what the truth is, I just want to know what it is. I don't want to believe things just because they make me feel good. I'm sure you agree.

                    hi,

                    Soul is constant. The experience of soul happens, once your astral body detach itself from the physical body, and move out of the body. This is how, we experience death. When the astral body gets back into the body, the soul becomes active. Its always there. Its an experience, and it can be proved only by one way. If I make you experience the same thing for your self.

                    Can I explain the blind man, that rose is red. He needs an eye to see. So unless we realize the higher self, the mind can never comprehend soul. It needs to be prepared. We look the world through the eyes,i.e. senses. and understand things with the mind.

                    The time the person can drop the mind, and accept the world as it is, things begins to happen within.



                    I can perceive what others perceive and I do. But I have a different answer as to how to interpret what we perceive than you do. Each to their own for sure, but isn't that just saying you aren't interested in challenging your own interpretations of what you perceive?

                    I've always maintained that I do not care what the truth is, I just want to know what it is. I don't want to believe things just because they make me feel good. I'm sure you agree.

                    You don't have to believe anybody. Don't ask others to prove their experiences. Ask them the way. If they can guide you, you will experience the same for yourself. If they cant make you experience the same, then they will back off. Its simple.

              Is certainty in opinion the criteria for claiming ones view above others?

                Isn't this your contention? What makes you sure of your views?  Do you believe anyone can be certain of anything?

                  Jomine Joseposted 3 years agoin reply to this

                  Yes I am certain in my views. But does that make my opinion superior to yours?
                  If one is thinking rationally instead believing one can be certain in most cases. Whether that certainty is emotionally satisfying is an entirely different question.

          I have been doing that for 50 years. And what I found is mind/brain, not soul.

          1. firstday profile image60
            firstdayposted 3 years agoin reply to this

            Slarty,

            Are are sure?  Are you absolutely sure?

            1. Slarty O'Brian profile image83
              Slarty O'Brianposted 3 years agoin reply to this

              Again, I'm reporting what I found.  Can I be certain there is no soul? No. But I am certain there is a brain and that it is more than capable of believing it is a soul. The brain in all animals has a prime function, the survival of the whole. But ours has come to believe that it is what must survive death, knowing that the body will eventually die no matter what it does. I don't think other animals know that so it may not be a factor for them or their brain/mind

              It is little wonder that this state of affairs would create gods and souls so that the brain can cheat death. From an evolution stand point it makes perfect sense. 

              This is not my belief, it is just my opinion that based on the facts it is the most likely answer so far.

              Can you prove there is a soul? No? So without proof it is a speculative idea. Perhaps there is and perhaps there is not. No need to prove to you that we have a brain and that without it you don't seem to be there anymore, you're just a vegetable. One would think that if there was a soul that was the real you and guided the body: you would still be there able to function even without a working brain, wouldn't you? No? The Egyptians were wrong when they thought the soul animated the body and that the brain was just a big snot box. So now what?

              What does a soul do? How does it function? What is it;s function?

              Perhaps you can tell me? No one else has ever been able to,

                Slarty,

                Who would you be without the thought there is no soul?

                1. Slarty O'Brian profile image83
                  Slarty O'Brianposted 3 years agoin reply to this

                  Is that a Zen Koan? wink If so you know there is no answer, except perhaps to put a shoe on your head and walk away.

                  But I think you mean that if I did not think there was no soul who would I be? I guess I might then be a person who believed in souls? Is that what you are after?

                  There must  be more to your intended question than meets the eye. Do you care to try again?

                Maybe the brain is just a receiver, like a television set. I don't know about souls, but it makes more sense to me that our brains receive consciousness, and don't create it.

                I'm not sure there is a soul. I think it's more likely that our consciousness is just a small fragment of a larger whole.

          Clearly this is not true for everyone.  People are different.

          The way I see it the soul is just a name we give some stuff we do and feel. And then we refuse to give it to animals who do and feel the same things, and sometimes even to other people.
