To Syed: Your evidence for the soul?

Reader comment on item: Salman Rushdie and British Backbone
in response to reader comment: To Plato: Note soul escapes when body dies, but body becomes atheists when soul dies.

Submitted by Plato (United Arab Emirates), Jul 11, 2007 at 05:51

Syed Rafey, your reply is in inverted commas:

This is what I had written: If as you say surrender and submission are hard wired how come there have been atheists and agnostics ever since civilisation arose?

"---Dear Plato, surrender and submission are hard wired into human souls but souls becomes reactive if not fed for sometimes and die if not fed for extended period of time.---"

You have picked a stray sentence from my post and repeated your favourite theme of soul feeding (i. e. surrendering to Allah). This is a non-answer. You have not touched on any of the major points I raised.

"---Note soul escapes when body dies, but body becomes atheists when soul dies.---"

Spoken like a true believer. Who has seen the soul escaping the body. Some Prophet or the other told you so? Where is your evidence for the soul?
