Why do you group atheists and scientists together? Many scientists are deeply religious, and atheist non-scientists don't carry out scientific research. In any case, the idea of the human soul does not fall within the realm of science.
Not at all. Science deals only with those things that we can perceive with our senses -- or with extensions of our senses, like microscopes and telescopes. If we can't perceive something, then it cannot be explored scientifically. Thus God is outside the realm of science. Science says nothing about the existence of God, pro or con.
No, thoughts are not an extension of our senses. They allow you to ponder and analyze things that you have already perceived with your senses, but thoughts don't provide any new data about the outside world (i.e., outside of your body).
It doesn't work that way.
Wouldn't you like to know.
I am very skeptical of claims of a human soul. First of all, what is it? Why can't we measure it? After all, we can measure bands of light that are invisible to our eyes, such as ultraviolet and infrared light. We can see cells upon cells with our microscopes and the farthest away galaxy with our telescopes. Why should something as important as a soul escape all measurement and empirical evidence to scientists (because scientists make the discoveries, not atheists). The best bet right now is to say that the 'human soul' exists only in the mind; a fabrication of our imagination to make us feel good and separate us from other animals and living things on the planet. It's that all too familiar human ego showing itself again, nothing more.
What's a soul?
I dont understand that reply.
My first reply i'm asking you what a soul was.
My second reply was to "Something you won't discover evidently". I wanted you to explain what you mean by this reply.
