A Trick Question: Do humans have a soul?


Quote: "David is a fine example of a role model...minus the humor." Pops

My Bro, Pops, and I, the avatar of the day, were eating dinner at Cactus Taqueria. One of the conversations asked if humans are immortal or not. The shoulder avatar pulled up my current record response for the avatar of the day, who said, "Aren't humans soulless monkeys?"

Pops went on a tirade that humans are immortal because of their soul, all the while a silly grin appeared on my face. I wanted to say "gotcha", but had to do the dumb blonde trick to keep a straight face. We talked until we finished dinner, said our goodbyes, and went our separate ways.

Later the evening, I heard an external knock at the bedroom door, yet no one was there.
Pops blurted out, "Hah, hah, very funny!" and left.

Ah, he finally figured it out.
"Humans are soulless monkeys" can also be said "Humans are soul less monkeys."
The monkey being a force thought. 

The dinner was in December of 2013, and I was not sure if I was a human with a soul.
I needed confirmation that my soul was taken out of my body for avatar substitution.
How else do you figure out that your body has a soul?
You have to die or ask an expert on human souls, which was my Pops.
