The great thing that comes along with the absence of faith is the loss of the need to believe in the human soul. I know that I dont have a soul and I know that I dont need a soul.
The idea of a soul I believe comes from man's fear of death. The soul and gods resolves that fear by providing a type of life continuation that takes the form living outside the body. Some takes this a step further believing in spirits, ghosts, angels, demons, sprites, etc. When we take into account the tendency the human brain has to hallucinate (a state in which the person believes the events occurring to be REAL) these hallucinatory images reinforce these ideals.
Similarly, when a traumatic injury occurs, the brain goes through the process of “shutting down” so to speak. During this process, many patients report seeing bright lights, angels, demons, or family members. Thus again reinforcing false ideals when simple scientific explanation provides us with a better and more accurate answer.
There are NO gods. In the future, Jesus, Allah, and Buddha are going to be just as absurd to worship as we consider Raah, Zeus, Baal, etc.
