by Monsieur Baggy Trousers:
As a staunch skeptic, I find the notion of anything supernatural, from God to crystal healing to the existence of the human soul, likely to be based on human whim, rather than actually existing. Recently a friend of mine (who is definitely skeptical of the existence of a god but believes fully in ghosts) posited this question to me: given that the human body operates by electrical impulses, and as per the laws of thermodynamics energy can’t be created or destroyed; thus, the electrical energy must “live on” as a ghost.
I see this particular argument being offered all the time for the existence of ghosts; how does one refute this? What does happen to the electrical energy, anyway?
