    Some arguments regarding the idea that experiences of the mind/soul are only the brain itself:

    Also, the suggestion that the idea of a soul existing is redundant if there's already a part of the brain that functions for consciousness? There's also claims that the size of gray matter in your brain biologically disposes you to be more forgiving without a spirit, and that certain parts are responsible for certain functions often only attributed to the soul, like empathy, which when removed make someone incapable of feeling it.
