Lets see both opinions with respect to the existence of the soul
Lets start with the definition of a soul given right above:
the essence or embodiment of a specified quality.
OK. Now, please mention the ancient philosopher who defined a soul with those words.
Please, excuse me for the following... ha ha ha ha...
See? There is not any ancient definition of a soul as the essence or embodiment of a specified quality.
So, you are lying to yourselves and are trying to pull other people's legs.
Lets check the another opinion
I've shown you that soul is a rather secular term but you persist saying it's religious.
You are acting like a thief, stealing the meaning of soul for your exclusive usage..
First I'm not a religious person, I do not belong to any religious denomination, and I have no gain showing you how incorrect are your thoughts about who invented the word soul.
Second, there are millions and millions of people who use the word soul
as a religious definition since ancient eras, because the word soul
comes from religious sources.
And the word soul
has been defined with many interpretations according to the religion of every culture.
From here, science and seculars have inherited the word soul
and have use it as well. But its origin is 100% religious.
By the way, in order to see how laughable is all this fuss about the existence of the soul from a past scientific point of view; I will remind you that when the X-rays were discovered, several tests were made with them. And the University of Pennsylvania in those early years of playing with X-rays made an attempt to obtain an X-ray image of the human soul.
How about that?
