    Hi Burgy,

    I would like to make the (scientific) claim that for almost everything
    there is no such thing as an is an instantaneous event. Everything
    requires some time period to bring an event into being. What you have said
    is not unique to the soul and simply "begs the argument"

    In any consistent theory, there must exist true but not provable statements. (Godel's Theorem)

    You can only find the truth with logic If you have already found the truth without it. (G.K. Chesterton) ===================================
