Are Humans More Than a Body?

Weighing the Evidence for an Eternal Soul

Travis Pelletier

Do humans have souls? At first blush, this may seem like just an abstract philosophical riddle, but the soul and the afterlife go together. If we are merely a body, then death, it would seem, is the end of us. So, this is considerably more than a mental exercise. Demonstrating that human beings have an “unseeable” component of themselves, might seem an impossible task, but as Travis Pelletier shows, there is an abundance of evidence, from Near Death experiences to the cohesiveness of consciousness. This essay makes the comprehensive argument that humans are more than a body.
