a good essay on the non existence of the soul

I've been reading through this essay, and I'd say it's not just good, it's excellent. Thank you very much, MariaEvri, for posting that link. I wonder if manga even bothered to click on it.

Do you find this sort of thing convincing, manga?
From what I understand, in biblical context the term soul is the same as "person". In general use  such as --That person will definitely go to hell.  When a person dies their soul remains alive,(according to most religious thinking) and that is  what goes to hell. In common usage then soul=person. They don't explain how something that has no nerves can feel pain--but, we know they cannot be correct. One person in the book says the dead are conscious of nothing. As the saying is---no brain no pain.
