Can "the Soul" be Proved?


The soul has been disproved from the standpoint of academic science. For ages the search has gone on, with the objective of the search, scientifically, to find the location of the soul in the human body. An important factor to the scientific mind, which differs to that of the mystics.

The modern veil, with the understanding of the human body, has tried to prove that the soul is superstition and that conscious thought with all the higher manifestations of the human mind is the lower expressions of personality and conscious integration. This is mainly due to man's present understanding of the brain, nervous system and the endocrine system.

All these are the result of a long evolutionary process. From a primitive cell, developing under the long evolutionary process, environmental conditions, plus a consistent adaptation and with a careful selection, man has developed. He now possesses a mechanism which is responsive to the natural world, to sensation and to thought. The wonder of man itself is Divine in its completion.

Frequently as the result of this selective process "The Soul" constitutes the response and discriminating powers of the cells and organs of the body. All, is assumed to be inherent in the parental cell, the environment, with heredity and education, are called the phenomena of the human consciousness.

Man is a machine, a part of a still greater machine which we call Nature, and both man and nature are run on immutable laws. There is no free will except within certain clearly defined limits, which are defined by circumstance. There can be no immortality, for when the machine breaks down and disintegrates there is nothing left but the dissociated cells and atoms of which it was originally composed.

When the principle of integration ceases to function, the coherent functioning body ceases to function. Consciousness and choice, awareness and affection, thought and temperament, life and love, character and capacities, all disappear, and there is nothing left but the atoms of which the body had been composed. These in their turn are dissipated and disappear, and all has finally been reabsorbed into the general reservoir of the unknown.

"Where then is the Soul?"
