Researchers claim that humans have souls which can live on after death


The idea that human consciousness lives on after death has been put forward by a number of well-respected scientists.

It may sound like a supernatural myth, but the idea that human consciousness lives on after death has been put forward by a number of well-respected scientists.

And the British scientist at the forefront of the eerie theory claims that humans have souls which don’t die along with the body.

We many not know exactly what consciousness is, but physicist Sir Roger Penrose believes that it’s just a packet of information stored at a quantum - or sub-atomic - level.

Sensationally, he claims to have found evidence that this information, which is stored in microtubules within human cells, leaves the body after a person dies.

Sir Roger has argued that when a person dies temporarily, this quantum information is released into the universe, only to return to the body’s cells if the host is brought back to life.

He argues that this explains why people can have near-death experiences, and believes that this quantum information amounts to a soul leaving the body.

The physics expert said: “If the patient dies, it’s possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul.”



Interesting to hear this from a scientific perspective.


Science may be catching up with religion! :wink:


At long last?!

Funny how we the Church have known about this for such a very long time :slight_smile:

CCC 159 (link) Faith and science: "Though faith is above reason, there can never be any real discrepancy between faith and reason. Since the same God who reveals mysteries and infuses faith has bestowed the light of reason on the human mind, God cannot deny himself, nor can truth ever contradict truth."37 "Consequently, methodical research in all branches of knowledge, provided it is carried out in a truly scientific manner and does not override moral laws, can never conflict with the faith, because the things of the world and the things of faith derive from the same God. The humble and persevering investigator of the secrets of nature is being led, as it were, by the hand of God in spite of himself, for it is God, the conserver of all things, who made them what they are."38


…and they weigh ~21g, suckas!


Well whadda ya know, the physical sciences which have no knowledge or jurisdiction over non-physical things have finally started speculating about non-physical things!!

Oh, wait. They’ve been dabbling in this area which outside of their experience for years. cough atheistphysicistsusingphysicalscienceto makestatementsaboutspiritualthings


Nice to know they are beginning to agree with GOD!!! God Bless,
