Scientists believe our souls are real

According to research conducted by scientists in Dresden, Germany, we do have souls and they weigh 1/3000 of an ounce!

“The inescapable conclusion is that we have now confirmed the existence of the human soul and determined its weight,” said Dr. Becker Mertens in the Horizon, a German science journal.

Dr. Elke Fisher, who was a member of the research team, said they were careful to take into account any air leaving the lungs upon death, as we4ll as any “instantaneous physical deterioration.” After an exhaustive study, he said the scientists agreed that these things did not account for the weight loss.

“The only possible explanation is that we were measuring the loss of the human soul or some kind of life force,” he said.

In a letter accompanying the study, Dr. Mertens noted, “The challenge before us now is to figure out exactly what the soul is composed of. We are inclined to believe that it is a form of energy.”

Images of the soul

Konstantin Kortkov, professor of physics at St. Petersburg State Technical University in Russia, has also conducted experiments aimed at proving the existence of the soul. Using a Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) Bioelectrography camera, he was able to measure a human’s energy field.

This complex camera is used in concert with computer software to determine the results. Through his work, he has taken many photos that actually showed the soul was blue in color and could be seen existing the body at the point of death. As the soul leaves, “the patient’s image becomes red.”

Prof. Kortkov is known for publishing more than 70 papers on physics and biology in leading science journals and holds a dozen biophysics patents.

During the ‘40s, Dr. R.A. Watters of the William Bernard Johnston Foundation for Psychological Research in Reno, Nevada, decided to conduct an experiment in his desire to learn if the soul actually exists. He proposed that souls exist in a ‘limbonic state’ within the “intra-atomic space between the atoms of human cells.”

Using a Wilson expansion cloud chamber (an apparatus physicists use to track both atomic and sub-atomic particles), he put a grasshopper into it. Using ether, he euthanized the insect determined to see what happened at the very moment of death. A “strategically placed” camera took a photo as the insect’s “life force” left its body. The shutter was set to trigger when the amount of water vapor rose - something that had occurred in earlier experiments.
To his surprise, the resulting photo showed a shadow that was the same shape as the grasshopper. Forty more experiments on various animals including mice and frogs revealed the exact same effect. He also noted that with every experiment, the “shadow would last as long as eight hours. If the animal only lost consciousness, however, and was later resuscitated, no shadow phenomenon would appear.
