You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

It is the height of hubris to think that one form of understanding the world can know everything, and if it doesn't know, then no other knowledge is real.
Do you see all of the world's civilizations throughout all time talking about an invisible dragon living in your garage? No. But people have talked about the soul and its nature virtually forever.
So take your specious remarks about logic and reason and shove it. Your primitive science that has only been around for a few hundred measely years knows only a fraction of what this existence means. That's why people don't turn to science to answer existential questions. Those answers reside within us, not outside of us to be searched for and discovered in a lab.
Science deals with physical nature. It knows nothing about the world of spirit.

There seems to be this popular thought that the existence of a soul is unsupported by the data. I believe this thought to be in error.
I remember where I was on September 11, 2001. This was more than seven years ago. This means that I have not one molecule shared between my current body and the one I had then. My hardware has been completely replaced. In order for "me" to exist beyond the expiration of my hardware, suggests the existence of software.
That which I identify as "me" is clearly not limited to a particular set of particles, but rather to a pattern of thought which can run on this new brain just as well as it did on the old one.
Now y'all can make up a new term for this intangible sense of self which can be empirically demonstrated to transcend the material, but the word "soul" already aptly describes such a phenomenon regardless of whether you may dislike its spiritual connotation or not.
