Prove that Our Soul Exists

Q. How do we know that we really have an eternal soul?

A. A living human body is not the same thing as a corpse. Now the soul is the difference between a corpse and a living being. A dead body cannot move, eat, think, express itself, enjoy, or be miserable. It can but fall to pieces and go back to the dust. There is something that stops your body from doing that now. It is your soul. For every activitity you must find a principle of operation behind it. The principle in a man which thinks and loves, and is happy or miserable, is a very real thing. It is not nothing. It is not less than the very body it animates. Nor is it a chemical. No doctor examining a corpse, can tell you what chemical is missing that it sould not live. If there be nothing else save chemical substances, let doctors scientist gather together the requisite chemicals and say, “Live!” They can effect nothing like this. There is something that chemistry cannot reach; it is the soul or spirit. Look anyone in the face, and behind those animated features, those changing expressions, in the very eyes, you will read the soul.

Genesis 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the slime of the earth: and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul.

Q. Then do animals and vegetable life have souls?

A. Yes. Sane philosophy admits a vegetative soul, a sensitive animal soul, and an immortal, spiritual, intelligent human soul.

  1. Hi there!

    I found your blog and I thought that you might be interested in the musical act called The Priests. What separates this classical trio from others is that they really are catholic priests, who have recently signed a recording contract with Sony BMG. They are currently recording an album of classic hymns from the Latin Mass but you can find them on their website at and even on youtube at If you like what you hear it would be great if you could help them become better known to the public by mentioning them in one of your blog posts one day.

    Thank you
