    For clarification's sake, by nonphysical, I mean something that is neither matter, energy, or energy fields.

    Examples of non physical things would be thoughts, ideas, propositions, the laws of nature, the rules of logic, mathematics, and of course consciousness. Some of those can be detected by science, like the laws of nature and rules of logic, because they are predictable, repeatable, and testable, even though they are clearly not physical. With regards to the laws of nature, I'm referring to the laws themselves, not the effects, which is what we can actually measure. The laws would be inferred.

    What is a thought? Is it a physical thing or non-physical thing? What about information? Laws? Rules? Instructions? Intentions? Motivation? Interpretations?

    While Im not saying there is no soul, im saying i need evidence to belive in something, and i believe that ( at least currently ), there is a lack of said evidence.

    Also, what examples of non physical things do you have? Also, if there are things that science cant detect, how do we know they exist?

    While i agree that saying there is no soul is a bit presumptuous, to be fair, the person making any affermative factual claim has the burden of proof. You wouldn't blame someone for not believing in the Loch Ness monster until there was evidence/proof of it first, would you? What are these good message for detecting the existence of the soul you speak of, curiosity how would you define a soul? Because honestly, it's impossible to ascertain the existence of something to you know what it is.

    If consciousness wasn't physical, if I poked your brain, u wouldn't act any differently. Drugs, alcohol, brain trauma… will change consciousnes. Foolishness is believing something because u want to believe without proof.

    He is saying that the nature of a "soul" is that it could not be deduced through physical science. Its not a physical thing and therefore the scientific method, for example, would not be adequate to "find" it.

    Is it me or is Koukle admitting that 'yeah sure, there isn't any scientific and empirical evidence for the soul; of course!'

    2;19 – ROTFLMAO!
    Er, "Nothing unreal exists".
    Chuck Missler puts it eloquently – the soul, the essence of who we are, is as software to the hardware.
    On the other hand a lot of top scientists are starting to state, from the pattern and digital nature of matter to the "stats of scientific absurdity", they believe there is a creator designer. Well, duh ~
    So I'm guessing by that same "we haven't found it" logic there is no missing link or atheist rationality because they haven't found it yet 😉

    just added this to my favorite videos when you said "Scientist have been looking for the soul for 100 years and havent found it!" and gave that incredible awsome look "I… dont think I have to say anything more.. yeah"
