    There Is No Material Soul

    That's right. No immortal soul, no conscious essence of you that has been about before nor will go on after you die. Nothing that could be bottled, stolen, corrupted; sent to a supernatural realm, heaven, h3ll. Your transient and wonderful essence; the flame of your life, the...
