I have to agree that there is no way to prove if a human has a soul or not. Instead, it can be aligned with if one believes in God/god or not and the religious ideologies which follow. Personally, I believe that I do have a soul. Unfortunately, I simply cannot prove it.

I have to agree with the previous post here.  There is absolutely no way to know for certain if we have souls if you are going to define the soul as some permanent part of us that lives eternally.  We'll just have to find out when we die.

I do not think there is any way to prove if human beings have souls.  One thing we do have is self-awareness and consciousness.    There is no real way to know if this consciousness exists behind our body, other than faith.
