    The soul is not destroyed but exits, during death

    (When the food is not given, the person dies and in death, the eternal soul or Jiva exits the body, but not destroyed as per science).


    According to science the soul is formed in this birth only and is destroyed in this birth itself and as long as food is digested, the soul functions. When the food is not digested due to disease or damage, the soul is not destroyed but exits. This does not mean that we are refusing the conversion of food into soul.
