Aside from a soul, can you name anything else that is immaterial and immortal?

Mathematical objects like numbers? The laws of physics?
Because you do, doesn't mean everyone does. But this blatant elitism you display, seems integral to your worldview. Very interesting.
For you, that is what it means.
But the reality is, it is not the same for everyone.
I can name concepts, but nothing immaterial can be said to exist and therefore cannot be mortal or immortal.
Yes, I have a position on theism, deal with it.
I know, theism is delusion. I don't expect theists to exhibit rationality in this area.
That's a very strange question.
Because it's a philosophical question?
are these examples not of our imaginations---constructs of man?
Can you name anything that is immortal?
Of course you do. Just like you have a position on God
I accept your remark, because you are atheist. As an atheist you cannot come to any other conclusion, when pushed.
Because there is no point to the question. There is no satisfactory answer to be had.
Probably that's why philosophers may love to tackle a question like that.
What if we can't name it?
Is the soul philosophical?
What do you mean?

I'm not ideologically committed to atheism, I have no choice. I have to consider the evidence, which is absent or illegitimate. And you have done nothing to change that. Your arguments are textbook special pleading fallacies.
Oh I see...
You'd rather avoid the question?
That you are not interested in an honest discussion of how the mind produces thoughts and how these thoughts can lead you to believe things that are not true.
What are you doing here at all, if you dismiss everyone else's perspectives..
If you cannot give me the courtesy of taking 15 minutes to watch a presentation by a neuroscientist, why should I give you the courtesy of taking you seriously? You are the one who is unable to define your perspective of your mental hallucinations.
You just have your belief and ....end of story? As I suspected you are not here to gain knowledge, but to show the arrogant superiority of your mental hallucination. I've got you pegged now, and further discussion would be a waste of my time.
Ok, if it makes you happy, stay in your hallucination.
I'll agree partly with that.
I do agree there are universal mathematical laws of physics (universal constants), but they are based on values and functions, not numbers. Without humans there would be no numbers at all.
Perhaps a philosophical case can be made that Universal Constants are the soul of the universe
