Question, do you believe in the soul, defined as such: "The soul, in many religious, philosophical, and mythological traditions, is the incorporeal essence of a living being." ?

Incorporeal meaning: "not composed of matter; having no material existence"

Yes or no. You are welcome to supply a reason if it's no. If it's yes, please provide a valid reason.

Clarifying question needed: Does time have material existence?

Yes.
A "soul" = a "consciousness".

Yes - quantifiable as per scientific study.

They hooked up people close to end of life and had very precise equipment measure their weight.

At the event of experation there was a consistent measurable variance in weight.

Except with gingers .... They clearly have no soul.

Well, going by wiki, Time in physics is defined by its measurement: time is what a clock reads.[1] In classical, non-relativistic physics it is a scalar quantity and, like length, mass, and charge, is usually described as a fundamental quantity. Time can be combined mathematically with other physical quantities to derive other concepts such as motion, kinetic energy and time-dependent fields. I would say, yes. You can say it's physical when talking about time with regard to physics. How is this relevant?

Yes.

The law of conservation of energy. You have a "life force" that need to go somewhere.

No! But I do think it's likely there is more to us than just our biology and quite possible we have a 'soul' that survives death of the physical body.

Personally, no.
Agreed,

Take a reasonably abled person with an average IQ. Now take a hammer and smash his/her brain up a bit.

See, the thing is now ****ed up. So is the soul/or whatever you want to call it ****ed up as well?

Or when the ****yup thing dies suddenly the soul is back to normal?

Ok, so physical and material are considered synonymous in your view?

I'm trying to make sure I understand your meaning before I try to answer the question.
