Whatever it is that people call god, that "thing" they connect to and then just "know" there is a god, is inside all of us. No need for superstition or supernatural explanations. The Hindu, Moslem, Christian, Buddhist religious experience is reported as virtually the same thing.
But its not because of some ancient divining of goat entails, rather a connection to a deep part of our own brain's subconscious.
no offense... but you're digging your own grave.
you've changed the meaning of soul to fit your agenda ...it means the spirit, essence, core of someone, something seperated from the physical body...the body dies, yet the spirit doesn't.... need proof? tell dirk the spirit of his mom doesn't exist, or the emotions and feelings that spirit produce.
..you've also claimed your version is something inside of us that you can't see, but is obtainable, yet you have claimed many times that God doesn't exist, and isn't obtainable...quite the conundrum.
you claim that all religions are alike, yet they aren't..not even close....and even then, 99.9 percent of the time, you only go after the belief of Christ, it's the only one you feel the need to invalidate and mock.
I'm reminded of the story of the guy who said in searching for truth, he was convinced Christ was the way, because all the others said he wasn't.
there are three heavens..the one where the birds fly, the one where the stars are, and the one where God resides.
if you aren't seeking truth, and only falsehoods, it's impossible for the truth to be revealed to you.
