When you hold a new born baby do you only think of the biologic processes that made this possible or does something higher stir inside you? When you listen to great music or read great literature does something move inside the depths of your soul that has no explanation? Or are you simply a series of chemical reactions?
What is a "soul"? You asked me about my soul so present me with evidence that such a thing exists.

What good reason does anyone have to think that we are anything more than a series of chemical reactions? I don't have any reason to believe I'm anything more than that, and I don't believe in the existence of free will either. Just because we don't know everything about the brain, that doesn't mean we should plug some god into our gaps in understanding. You're acting like you already have the answer (god did it), when you don't know the answer any more than I do. I'm waiting for the evidence to come in before I proclaim I know something I have no way of knowing like you are doing.
