No, because on this view the soul's existence isn't dependent upon the brain, which it is on the computational theory of mind. One might think that souls can survive without bodies, but when not attached to a body, they experience things very differently because they do not receive any input from the body. On the contrary, it's perfectly compatible with it! Theologians have always stressed that the experience of the soul after death is quite different from the kind of experiences it has during life (and during the resurrection period, when it is reunited with the body). E.g. Aquinas would say that, as the form of the body, the human soul's "natural" state is to be embodied, and the period when it lacks a body - in between death and resurrection - is an unusual state for it. It still experiences things in that state, of course, but in a completely different way from when it is embodied. Well it's nice of you to say so! Thank you for the link. I'll stick them somewhere safe - I hadn't thought of looking in archives like that. Yes, you're right about the broken link - I took it down because I wanted to enter the story into a competition (which I didn't win) - I might stick it back up at some point but it's a lot more effort than it's worth, really! That depends on how you think reconciliation works. Some theologians (famously Gregory of Nyssa) have not only answered "yes" to this but thought that it would inevitably happen at some point, because there's only so far one can go in evil. Others of course would say "no", perhaps on the grounds that the atonement only applies to human beings.
