Subject: I have no soul
References: <>

?As an atheist I do not have a soul, at least not one, which
transcends into some form of the hereafter, be it heaven, hell or
    But I also am not only cerebral function, knowledge and memory,
which could be uploaded.  I have something else, which I consider
equivalent with everybody else's soul and that is my endocrine
It governs my temper, my degree of aggressiveness or complacency,
my sensuality and my sexuality, my love, my loyalty and my
affection, which can sometimes be quite irrational and in
conflict with the evaluations of my brain.  I love myself, the
way I react to stimuli, my maturity or lack of it.  I want to be
preserved the way I am and I cannot see how that is possible by
uploading.  I would be just a computer, without my "humaness",
which I treasure so highly.
