We've made great strides in the past century towards understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms that drive brain function, and I will briefly present an overview of some of the major conclusions of that work. In short, though, what we have are sophisticated molecular regulators and sensors and effectors and modulators that generate patterned impulses in pathways throughout the brain, and the mind is ultimately reducible to highly organized chemistry--there's no room for ghosts, souls, or spirits, and no need for them, either.

PZ Myers [1]

The Soul is a concept that's as unrealistic as God, Theology or even Santa. [2]
