Which means far less than 'according to wikipedia'; at least that usually has links to actually legitimate sources.

Quote:the soul is the life, the blood of any breathing creature, and it dies. Are you saying these things don't exist?

Life exists, blood exists, and creatures do breathe and die. There's no evidence that there is anything associated with any of those that could be called a soul.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

The soul is the life, the blood, the life experience of any breathing creature. The Hebrew word for soul, nephesh, comes from a root word that means "breather." Any living, breathing animal or human, has or is a soul. The soul is in, or is, the blood. Thus the soul or life, is sacred, thus blood sacrifice. According to the Bible.

Apostate religion began teaching the pagan concept of the soul upon the influence of the Greek philosophers Socrates and Plato; that the soul is some immortal part of us that lives on after death isn't a Bible teaching.

You're not presenting facts, you're presenting YOUR opinions.

For a god? Define god. Moses? Jesus? Satan? Molech? Tammuz? The Judges of Israel? Eric Clapton? Zeus? Baal? There are billions of gods, some exist or existed and some didn't or don't. What a remarkably obtuse statement to say that there isn't evidence for a god simply because it doesn't exist.

Zeus didn't exist. I don't believe in Zeus. I don't worship Zeus. Zeus is a god.

Some exist? Are you polytheistic?

So factually 1. Jewish religious thinking regarding the immortal soul wasn't influenced by Greek Philosophy after Alexander The Great? 2. The Bible doesn't say the soul dies, i.e., is mortal, contrary to Plato and Socrates? Is that what you are saying?

Polytheistic . . . [Sigh!] . . . No, like the writers of the Bible, I'm Henotheistic.

1 Corinthians 8:5,6 For even though there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth, just as there are many “gods” and many “lords,”  there is actually to us one God, the Father, from whom all things are and we for him; and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things are and we through him.

So you believe in many gods but, only worship one.

Oh so I guess I missed where you proved a soul exists?
