    The problem is that we do have biological souls which are the same as the behaviour of the body. There is no separation.
    Also, you can also prove this through probability. Today it's pretty high and...

    In a way, yes. But behaviourism probably has its roots in Locke, with his Tabula Rasa, where he postulates an empty child that has to be filled with evrything. Another ridiculous philosopher who...
