    The soul is a product off the human ego. I've yet to see any definite proof it exists. I back up this statement with I had a major stroke with complications in 2008. I had three and a half months in a coma, the first two weeks being 3 on the Glasgow Coma Scale, ie in a deep coma or dead. This (non-) experience has turned me from a vacillating agnostic to a confirmed atheist. However, I strongly believe in the concept of spirit which helps our compassion, humanity and moral compass
