Yes, that process is well known.

You are, of course, assuming that we don't have a soul OR you're assuming that our souls are limited to our physical brains.
As of yet, science is unable to answer the question: Do we have a soul?
So anyone claiming we don't is either ignorant or lying.

We may yet invent the possibility, but for now .
They do not exist.

Seeing as how Dave has suffered irreversible damage to his brain is it any surprise he goes on these childish rants? During his NDE he had a vision of Jesus with magnets in each hand saying... These are the keys Dave you need string to bind it all together!

Dave replied.. You are real! Yes oh lord I shall carry on your magnet work! Can I have those magnets as proof I met you?

Jesus answered. No George Burns look alike for these magnets are closing the holes in my hands!

Lmfao!

As far as modern physics goes, this will lead to a serious re-writing of the books. If the effort isn't killed and buried quickly.

There is that pesky EM again.
EM is not what they define and pigeonhole it to. It is the grand polarity induced into the universe. All the rest is effects.

This is silliness. I don't have to "assume" souls don't exist. You have no evidence that they do.
I gave you a perfectly reasonable argument.
- Various things that constitute 'you' are located in the brain.- When you die, the brain is destroyed.
- Therefore,'you' are destroyed.
Can you provide evidence for a mechanism by which 'you' are saved after death or not?
No, I cannot provide that evidence. I am not a scientist by any means.

But science hasn't ruled out the possibility of one day being able to detect our souls.

YOU cannot demonstrate that souls are non-existent, can you?

I just said he suffered a hallucination after he cut off his own fingers. He has obviously suffered irreversible brain damage from this.

It case you donít know. Sadism is outside the boundaries of what is considered normal.
From Wiki:
Sadism is the derivation of pleasure as a result of inflicting pain, cruelty, degradation, or humiliation, or, watching such behaviors inflicted on others. Aspects of it include:

I think you like to see suffering and pain. You are the only one that keeps bringing up about this injury because the thought of someone else being in pain is like a feather tickling you in the ass.

Your sadist behavior is not normal. Iím trying to insult you just telling you that you are way outside the lines of normal.

If there is no evidence of it, then my position that we are gone upon death is the most reasonable stance, right?

No. I cannot demonstrate that I do not get a Karma Point for every time I said the word "Awesome" either. I also cannot demonstrate that we're not in The Matrix.

Ideas that are unfalsifiable generally aren't very useful.

ďBrain damage,Ē here you go again being insensitive. There is nothing funny about brain damage. Itís insulting to families of those who have family members suffering from brain trauma due to accident or illness. Including many of our fine military who have been injured by IEDís.

That kind of talk is no longer acceptable. It went out in the late 70ís.

Why?

An engineer knowledgeable about computers could explain it to them and make references to existing technologies with similar principals like phonographs (recording of information) and radio (wireless transmission of information).

Those are consequences of specific deaths.

We know many of you love nothing better than to insult but some insults go across the line of what is acceptable.

Calling someone ďbrain damaged,Ē is being so out of touch with the common populace. Both Atheist and Christians have friends and family members that have suffered some kind of brain trauma. Itís not a joking matter and shows insensitivity and disrespect to all people.

Fate has itís way of making it rounds and those of you who think brain trauma is funny. You just may get to experience it one day for yourself.

Donít be so disrespectful to the injured and suffering.
