Physicists discover humans have souls
Religion and science need not be at loggerheads for, once again, science discovered something Christians have long believed — that we each have a soul.
Yesterday, an article in the UK rag, The Sun, told of a scientific discovery that actually is several years old: Physicists have discovered the equivalent of the soul, i.e., something that endures after the death of our bodies.
To begin, physicists like renowned British physicist Sir Roger Penrose now believe that human consciousness is something ineffable that’s “beyond the computational laws of physics”. Watch and listen as Penrose grapples at describing our consciousness in the video below, beginning at the 2:11 mark:
“To me, there is something outside the computational laws of physics. And when I wrote my book, ‘The Emperor’s New Mind,’ I was trying to develop this idea, and I was trying to say, ‘Well, there is something else out there.’ What could it be? Where is the biggest gap in our understanding of physics? . . . most of these things don’t have a direct bearing on what the brain does . . . . This big gap is within present-day quantum mechanics . . . maybe that gap is where the theory has to be outside a computational system.”
