Scientists: Soul lives on after the body dies.

Well, duh!

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

Sir Roger Penrose is an English mathematical physicist, recreational mathematician and philosopher. He is the Emeritus Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford, as well as an Emeritus Fellow of Wadham College. Penrose is internationally renowned for his scientific work in mathematical physics, in particular for his contributions to general relativity and cosmology. He has received a number of prizes and awards, including the 1988 Wolf Prize for physics, which he shared with Stephen Hawking for their contribution to our understanding of the universe.

Many may not know exactly what consciousness is, but 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.”

I don’t know if the following was included in the research, but right after renowned atheist Christopher Hitchens died, his voice was heard saying, “Uh Oh!”
