skepticism, noun, the philosophical doctrine that the truth of all things must be questioned according to the best principles of science, logic, and philosophy. The result of this process of questioning is that each topic is given the degree of confidence that it deserves based upon the available evidence.
I would be turn atheist, if scientist ever discover the metaphysics of conscious(soul) I know that it exists but it's not been explained by science, until then I cannot believe that their is no afterlife(the ultimate paycheck most people are waiting for); my theory of the 'soul' is much like the theory of gravity; it's mechanisms are from another dimension but it is only noticed and does not function in ours.
How do you know that there is such a thing as a soul?
I don't see that the soul as distinct from the physical body is a fact. There is no evidence for that. It is true that science knows very little about the mind or a "soul", but I don't see how you can be so sure that there is something beyond the physical body if there is no evidence for it. I guess I should be more specific. How do you know that there is such a thing as a soul that is distinct from the physical body?Encarta Dictionary:
The soul is a FACT as you can notice it; it is paranormal to modern science.soul [sōl]
