The biblical word for soul does not denote “soul,” as in the popular notion that the soul is the 'real me clothed in the body.' When people die their “souls” survive for all eternity. This modern mystic view is rejected by modern science who, despite all their efforts, has been unable to prove that a "soul" exists. Actually, the term for the soul in Hebrew is nefesh and it means a “life force,” that keeps the vehicle, the body, alive, or a “person.” Nothing more. The intellect, and not the soul survive death.

How exactly are you defining "a soul".
