  • I believe that soul weight exists but you can't based in one analysis.As being a mathematician I need more proves to believe it at all.
  • I'm really amazed that no scientific attempts to reproduce or refute Prof. MacDougall's have been made known! It's been a 100 years and so far it seems Prof. MacDougall's pioneer experiment has never been seriously challenged or convincingly confirmed by reproducing this study! Simple amazing! I do believe that the soul exists and i believe it probably consists of what scientists call "dark matter" or "dark energy" for lack of a better term! It has been estimated that we can only perceive and accurately measure about 4% of the universe and the rest of the universe consists of this elusive substance!
  • Dr. MacDougall's study is worthy of further research! I'm really amazed that no scientific attempts to reproduce or refute Prof. MacDougall's have been made known!

  • They say we lose 21 grams at the exact moment of our death. 21 one grams... The weight of a stack of five nickels, the weight of a hummingbird...a chocolate bar. This is how much twenty one grams weighs... I was urged to watch the movie "21 Grams" and was tempted with a link to the movie trailer. I had never heard of this concept before, and was very intrigued. I decided to watch the movie, and was amazed. It was moving, and made the wheels in my head spin...fast, faster, too fast! I wanted to do research on this topic...hoping their is scientific proof that we actually do have a soul. This concept has made me even more interested in the research behind this concept. Dr. Duncan MacDougall of Havervill, Massachusetts did a study which was published in 1907 which was set out to prove that the soul had mass. He started with a sample of 6 end stage, terminal individuals. He developed a bed that would constantly keep the weight of the patients he was observing. Based on results from the experiment, the patients lost approximately 3/4 ounces, which equals 21.3 grams. Many rejected this hypothesis and concluded the weight difference was due to sweating and and moisture evaporation due to the rise in body temperature. His research was not sound, due to the small sample size. So I am perplexed...why don't modern day researchers conduct the same study, and use a unbiased sample size, which includes many different end stage terminal patients? Set out to retain this hypothesis that the soul does in fact weigh 21 grams?
  • They have done the Research.They also has disproved the Hypothsis of evolution. They also know the earth isn't millions of years old. They won't tell you because they "fear" an "irrational" response - my christianity. Do your research on christian apologetics and all the arguments on both sides... it will show you the real truth.
