Seeing all these mind-spirit and emotional threads popping out, I want to ask the Pit:
Do you have a soul?

The more biology discovers, the less room for soul faith.

I was the only atheist in my Christian school. I used to get so much hassle for saying I didn't believe we had a soul. Imagine a load of teenage girls being like "BUT THEN HOW DO YOU PRAISE JESUS?!?!"

No. I did for years after being indoctrinated into Catholicism as an infant. But now I think the idea is just silly and needs a painfully stupid form of logic to justify it's existance.

No, I don't believe in soul, more in believing that it's a human automatism to think there is something higher that controls life or something in us that will live on forever (not for me though...)

It depends on how you define a soul.

I'm not religious at all, but I still believe in the presence of a soul. Biology explains what we are, it takes something much deeper to explain who we are.

God (well, not really) I understand you completely.

Philosophically speaking yes and no, we do (not) have souls. It is strictly dependent on your definition. The soul that goes to the fairies in the sky? Probably not. The mind that people call "the soul"? Indeed, we also have retards among us who want to complicate things and make every one sound religious. I blame the Catholics (and the Jews just because they're easy to blame).

No. The soul is an archaic myth. There is no reason to believe that at some point in the transition between non living chemical elements and simple living cells to the advanced creatures we see today that a 'soul' came about somewhere. It dosn't make sense and it isn't backed up by any evidence.
#26
reading some of these posts, I hope you guys know the concept of a soul isnt just restricted to the christian religion...

It's called the brain. also don't give me that 'what about the mind' BS either, the mind IS the brain because we already know enough to know certain parts of teh brain control different things and different parts of your own personality can be changed if different parts of the brain are damaged. That thing in your head is all 'YOU' are. If you get altzheimers disease then the person that you are will degrade because the brain is.

How does biology explain we don't have a soul? Wtf. If we didn't have a soul how could we love or feel?

This is a music forum, right? Correct me If I'm wrong...

It's all in that lump of spongey stuff in your head. The emotional part of the brain is actually known (i don't know which part it is or the name but i heard it somewhere, i'm sure someone here knows the technical term) and if it's damaged then you won't feel any emotion anymore.

As i said, all the stuff to do with these complex feelings is located in the brain.

1. (in my opinion) It's psychology. Those are emotions we feel and that have been developed over thousands and thousands of years of learning how to reason. Because we have traits that make us survive and have an edge over every other animal (maybe due to thumbs?), we have been able to survive long enough to be able to reason with eachother. Which is why animals can't feel (or, at least, show no true signs of) the emotions you listed

2. This is the Pit, not necessarily a music forum

This.

I don't think I'm important at all. As humans we tend take ourselves too seriously and think we are all knowing and powerful. There are so many stars and universes that are lightyears away yet we tend to trust science for everything and give us an explanation.

Now that I think of it, science made us lose or souls.

Ok, now this thread is gonna get into aliens and stuff

This could all be a dream. You could be god and not know it.

Blah blah blah, it's redundant to consider this stuff at any serious level. We can only rely on our senses because that's ALL WE HAVE to rely on. That is no excuse for the belief in illogical myths because if it isn't backed up by evidence (and has been looked into and explained by better means) then what is the point?

So we have souls because we can't prove we don't.

From now on, every woman you've never seen naked has a penis because you can't prove she can't.

Have fun!

Realistically speaking, by what method other than science are we going to attain knowledge?
The vastness, complexity, and beauty of the universe hardly need to be invoked for us to realize that there are some major problems with the idea of an immortal, non tangible soul. It brings to mind when Art Bell tried to justify ESP type phenomenon on Coast to Coast AM by saying that there are lots of things we don't know about quantum theory, therefore we shouldn't rule anything out.

It's silly.
