What part of the brain is responsible for the soul (as theists call it?)
I have been debating a theist on another website that believes God created everything but doesn't believe that the Bible is the Word of God. He believes that God is manifest through us and created that part of us that theists refer to as the soul or spirit.
His last post is as follows, "The fact that we are interacting and trying to express what we feel in our soul is testament to the existence of the soul. If not, why would my mass of cells and neuronal connections care about your mass of tissue?"
I need someone with a science background to give me a rational response to this. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
