Science merely deals with life forms, created or evolved, and not the spirit of life. The Bible is clear about LIFE, (CHIEEM in Hebrew-LIFE in plural) which is not just air, water and movement, but the cause behind these three. In Him we live and move and exist (Book of Acts 17:28)
The very Name of God YHVH is LIFE. Doctors can examine the body and its organs, but bodily organs can only function having the presence of life. Where does the Spirit of Life it when it exists the body? Must life exit the body at all? is this - widely accepted philosophy of a very short life - correct?
