This is a fun thought experiment. Basically, if you do not believe in the concept of a soul, would you be willing to sign a contract transferring ownership of your soul – which you don’t believe in – in exchange for $50.

For the record, I’m with Bruce’s conclusion at the end. I’m all for a market where I can sell a thing I don’t believe in over and over and over. Isn’t that what religion is anyways?
