“If we do indeed possess an immaterial soul,” physicist Victor Stenger writes in God: The Failed Hypothesis, “then we should expect to find some evidence for it.” But science has found none, which leads Stenger to conclude that the soul is a myth. Philosopher Daniel Dennett writes, “Our brains are made of neurons, and nothing else. Nerve cells are very complicated mechanical systems. You take enough of those, and you put them together, and you get a soul.” Dennett is not suggesting that the soul is itself a material object. Rather, he is implying that the soul is simply the name for the brain’sability to do certain kinds of mechanical processing.
