    First, i'm asking about souls, not show soles or filet of sole.

    This is about the holiest week of the Jewish year which makes most Jews think more about being Jews than we usually do, amazing as that sounds (and it makes some Muslims wonder why they are not Jews; and some Christians proclaim that they are definitely not Jews, although all acknowledge that Judaism came first, they all pray to the same god, celebrate their major holidays at the same times of the year, and insist that a Jewish carpenter is god, god's prophet etc.)

    I'm not asking about any of these issues (because i just don't give a shit about "The Truth" since there are so many of them). I'm asking "what do you think about souls?" I'm not asking about your religion; I'm asking about souls, but souls removed from any concepts about god, which god, and which religion, etc.

    So first I'll say what I think (and I did not always think this way; it has been creeping up to me over a long time): we do not have souls: we are souls, and we have bodies. Now i'm trying to figure out, if this is the truth (and I mean the truth, not "The Truth") how does it change the way I interpret others, their actions and the things that occur during the normal day.

    It depends how you define evil.

    Does evil have a religious connotation? If one has to believe in demons or hell in order for someone to be evil then no.

    I'm not even sure you can put what a soul is into words.

    I've met people I think don't have them, though.

    You ever read much about Buddhism, Froggy?

    I've never read Buddha but the soul is the ability to hold conversations in our head. It's where the God concept comes from.

    BOOM!

    Hey man, I don't think any of us have all the answers to what a soul entails.
