Man had observed for thousands of years that everyone dies and their body
will rot away or be eaten if not buried. This observation did not sit
well when the idea that we might have an afterlife came into being.
The goat herders that introduced the world to monotheistic religion with Yahweh also determined with their great mystical powers that our life force is actually a soul that controls our body.
The concept of a soul clearly seems to imply everlasting life and that we be more than a living, breathing piece of meat that defacates.
Christianity and Islam are focused on the salvation of our souls that supposedly are everlasting.
Christianity and Islam are both essentially extortion rackets:
Nice soul you've got there... Pity if something bad were to happen to it."
Inquiring minds really want to know.
We are told that everybody is born with what is called Original Sin or Ancestral Sin except for the virgin Mary who had what is called an Immaculate Conception and Jesus (since Mary had not original sin)..
There are numerous references to the stain of original sin. Is the stain noticeable and visible? Don't we have some modern detergent that can remove such stains?
If our current population of seven billion humans constitute only five percent of all those who have been born, then it stands to reason that there exists about 140 billion souls in heaven or hell.
The idea of an incorporeal soul is incoherent and contradicted by the best available evidence.
