Hi friends! I wanted to talk about how a lot of people debate on whether we have a soul or not. I’m assuming that atheist are the ones who believe that once we “die” that’s it. Materialist believe that conciousness/mind and self-awareness resides directly in the brain. In other words, they believe that we are flesh robots! It’s the neurons sparking that create our minds.
Most scientist and medical researchers take that stance on conciousness. I’m no professional, but I want to give my personal opinion. I don’t even have to use spirituality or philosophy to prove my point that we have a soul. Our conciousness is not the brain! Our soul uses our brain! So I’m going to use a common sense approach. The first step is to know what the human brain looks like.
Yes, this is the human brain. The human brain is made of gray matter. This is made up of about 100 billion neurons that gather and transmit signals while the white matter is made of dendrites and axons that the neurons use to transmit signals. The brain is composted of about 75% water and is the fattiest organ in the body, consisting of a minimum of 60% fat.(The Human Brain – Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago). So, as you can see, it doesn’t contain thoughts or self-awareness inside of it on it’s own. There’s no projector or computer chip hidden inside the brain. It’s just an organ made of flesh. It also doesn’t hold electrical sparks inside of it without a force behind it. The force is you by the way. Without you it’s a lump of matter! Now, what can we compare the function of the brain to? How about a television!
As you can see, the television is made of matter too. It’s Just a different texture and not made of cells. Now, look at the brain and television. Both are dead without a force to operate it and bring it to life. Both is just a clump of matter. The television is powered by energy in the wall. Hey! Guess what! We are also powered by energy. Did you know that we are made of energy!? Yes! That’s why the brain and heart has electrical impulses when you the force is behind it! Also, that is why we need food and the sun to maintain our energy! We are energetic beings. But, since we are souls, we don’t need to plug in the wall! We are the energy! Now we all know that the television needs signal to show a picture.
Now, for you materialists, are you assuming that our brain made of matter is receiving signal from some artificial satellite giving us humans self-awareness and mind? Well, that could work if we all thought exactly the same like robots! But we don’t! That’s why we are debating on whether we have a soul or not. No two people think exactly alike! Have you noticed that televisions have the same channels! People from all over can view the same program on the same channels. That’s because it’s using an artificial satellite/ signal. And no matter how “smart” your television is, it’ll never be self-aware or conscious like you. It can only receive energy from the wall, satellite signals, and preprogrammed features. Now you on the other hand, where do you think your brain get it’s signal from? No, not just the neurons. Neurons are just:
a specialized cell transmitting nerve impulses; a nerve cell.
