(ORDO NEWS) — For many decades, scientists have been wrestling with the question of the existence of the soul, its definition and nature.
Theology and philosophy claim that the soul exists. Traditional science, on the contrary, denies the existence of such a thing as the soul.
Duncan McDougal established more than a hundred years ago that the soul weighs 21 grams. This conclusion he made after a series of experiments.
The experiment consisted in weighing people during life and immediately after death. Thus, he was able to establish that immediately after death, exactly 21 grams of weight evaporate from the human body somewhere.
The experiment was also carried out on dogs. Their weight during life and after death did not change, which meant the absence of a soul in dogs.
However, many reputable doctors have refuted such results. They attributed the weight loss to the release of fluid during sweating.
In the case of dogs, things are not so simple. The fact is that dogs do not sweat, but are cooled by breathing. Thus, the opinions of experts were divided.
In philosophy and theology, the soul is that which underlies life. It does not depend on the material body of a person. The body dies and turns to dust, but the soul lives on.
For many, the soul is the most important part of a person. Medicine does not give any description of the soul and its exact definition. However, it is certain that the soul has always been closely connected with the human spirit.
Some people are especially convinced of the existence of the soul. They argue that the soul not only exists, but does not die.
So, for example, the psychologist and philosopher Raymond Moody experienced a state close to death, and claimed that, despite the death of the brain, he had been to heaven.
He wrote the book “Life After Life”, in which he described in detail his experience and the experience of people who had a near-death experience.
Life After Life has sold over 13 million copies, been translated into a dozen foreign languages, and has become an international bestseller, making the subject of near-death experiences popular and paving the way for many other studies.
