How does one prove the existence of their soul?

I mean by definition you can’t prove that your consciousness and personality are immortal?

  1. The connotations that the English “soul” commonly carries in the minds of most persons are not in agreement with the meaning of the Hebrew and Greek words as used by the inspired Bible writers. This fact has steadily gained wider acknowledgment. Back in 1897, in the Journal of Biblical Literature (Vol. XVI, p. 30), Professor C. A. Briggs, as a result of detailed analysis of the use of ne”²phesh, observed: “Soul in English usage at the present time conveys usually a very different meaning from × ×¤×© [ne”²phesh] in Hebrew, and it is easy for the incautious reader to misinterpret.”
    More recently, when The Jewish Publication Society of America issued a new translation of the Torah, or first five books of the Bible, the editor-in-chief, H. M. Orlinsky of Hebrew Union College, stated that the word “soul” had been virtually eliminated from this translation because, “the Hebrew word in question here is ‘Nefesh.’” He added: “Other translators have interpreted it to mean ‘soul,’ which is completely inaccurate. The Bible does not say we have a soul. ‘Nefesh’ is the person himself, his need for food, the very blood in his veins, his being.”–The New York Times, October 12, 1962.

  2. The only thing I can think of is to use the example of when someone has a near death experience and they can watch the docs saving them from a birds eye view…

  3. I guess this is the crux of religion. There is no current scientific evidence of a soul that I know of, but there’s no definite proof there isn’t. It’s up to your personal belief.

  4. you can’t prove it, but if you look at someone dead, it is lifeless, that’s because there is no soul in it anymore. the soul animates the body.

  5. I can Prove that you have a Soul (an Invisible Spiritual Super-Computer).
    So There.
    Now, to Prove this thing, Do This:
    Tell one of your Friends to “Talk to you” AFTER you Start Counting to 20, in your Mind.
    Now, start Counting in your Mind to 20.
    (now your Friend “Talks to You”)
    your MIND shuts Down and Quits Counting to 20, so that YOU can Hear what your Friend has Asked you.
    See?
    YOU DO have 2-Minds
    1. First Mind, YOU, a Spirit
    2. Second Mind, your SuperComputer
    the World calls your Minds the “Unconcious” and your “Concious” (You!)
    See?

  6. I’ve heard of people who see colors around people. Also, I think there is something to Kirlian photography where energy is shown around living things. I believe we are God’s creation. We need God in order to get to heaven. I know evolution can’t explain the beauty of the earth. Only our Creator God with an eye for beauty could make the earth’s natural beauty, like the parks in the world, the animals, flowers, sunsets, butterflies, rainbows, peacocks, etc. Faith in God is a gift from God. You can pray for faith in God. Just speak out and ask God for the faith to believe in Him and to follow Him. Some people find faith in God when they realize the beauty in the world is made by God. Evolution can’t explain it.
    We need to know God in this world to get to heaven in the next world. Jesus Christ, God’s Son, is our bridge to God. Jesus died on the cross to cancel our sins. We need to accept Jesus into our life as our Lord and Savior forever to receive God’s blessing and forgiveness plus go to heaven to be with God forever after we die. This is about being a born-again Christian. After you have your faith on, you can pray a sinner’s prayer to be a born-again Christian. This prayer is very important and should be said with a sincere heart and faith in God. This is the prayer: “Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and that Jesus Christ is the sacrifice for our sins. I have done the following sins (state these out) and I pray to discontinue these sins. I pray to receive Jesus Christ into my life as my Lord and Savior forever. In Jesus’ name, amen.” You could find a Christian church and try it out. I’m Lutheran and I like the Baptist churches too. Some churches have a weekly Bible study group and these are a fun way to find out more about God and His will for your life. God bless.
