In an article entitled “Scientists ‘prove’ that the soul does not DIE: It returns to the UNIVERSE,” science is once again brazenly misrepresented in an effort to force reality into the dualistic mental prison.
The claim of “Proof” is not true. One can only come to a few conclusions that lead to such a verdict. 1) that the writer of the article doesn’t know the difference between a theory and a fact, or 2) They are following in the age old tradition of psuedoscientific claims to support their faith. I grant the latter out of respect so as not to assume they can’t read.
Out of approximately 7 million scientists worldwide (According to UNESCO) … TWO, that’s right 2 researchers have a theory, not proof, but a theory.
(from the article)
Since 1996, Dr. Stuart Hameroff, an American Physicist and Emeritus in the Department of Anesthesiology and Psychology, and Sir Roger Penrose, a mathematical physicist at Oxford University, have worked in a Quantum Theory of Consciousness in which they state that the soul is maintained in microtubules of the brain cells.
Their ‘provocative’ theory states that the human soul is be contained by the brain cells in structures inside them called microtubules.
The two researchers believe the human brain is in fact a ‘biological computer’ and the ‘consciousness of humans’ is a program run by the quantum computer located inside the brain that even continues to exist after we ‘die.’
As one can see for themselves, this “provocative theory” has nothing to do with a fact along the lines of “the earth is no longer flat” and “evolution.”
Religious and spiritual people are notorious throughout history for suppressing and misrepresenting science that falsifies their imagined reality. Their “confirmation bias lenses” will not allow them to see how they have fooled themselves and unwittingly strive to fool others in spite of glaring evidence to the contrary.
If enough evidence arrives for the existence of the soul/afterlife, you can bet there will be a few more scientist (out of 7 million) involved in the research.
Even so, the virus of dualism will continue as long as adults still believe in “literal” imaginary friends. My antidote for dualistic spiritual folk? Create the reality of being terribly wrong, and explore the possibilities.
