    If you define soul as something in the brain, then sure, I have one. If you define soul as a human concept of the one-ness of being, then, sure, I believe in that, at least in the frame of human interaction.

    If you believe in the soul as some hand-wavey greater than the physical thing, then I think that's bullshit. Or if you want to believe in it, I'd say it has no causal relationship to the world, therefore it's irrelevant.

    Your argument for there being a soul, essentially rests on the presence of a soul or some other non-matter facet.
    The argument will reach nowhere then unless of course you want to start arguing why each others assumptions are wrong which I doubt will lead anywhere too.

    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    but what i think she was trying to prove was that she is right and you are crap but since you substitute the word soul to everything that connects one part or your chemical reactions to another you are right yourself.

    I believe I have a soul (or to steal Usehername's signature quote of CS Lewis: I am a soul. I have a body.), primarily based on my religious beliefs.

    I'm open to the idea that what we think of as a soul is biologically based and I'm willing to incorporate that idea into my actions as a pragmatic measure, but I dislike the idea that that's really all there is to it because I prefer my somewhat mystical outlook on life. It makes me happy.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    If she doesn't believe in non-matter it's her choice (even though it's very clearly there).
