Side comment: I would estimate the percentage of neuroscientists and
cognitive scientists who are concerned with the soul at less than 1%.
Why? Because there's good experimental evidence (from studies of people
who have had lesions due to stroke and other causes) that the soul does
not exist in any sense meaningful to a religious person. The scientific
concerns are with the mind and brain.
