That just means that the soul is not material, but a form.  And forms do not die.

Well, an animal, and a plant has a soul too, but these souls die. How come?

Also, I am really interested now, what IS the certain evidence found in nature that man's soul is immortal?

It's all in Plato.  What ARE they teaching children in school these days?  :P

Parmandur, since you're clearly not a sophist, much less a 'base' one, I'm looking forward to your elaborating on 'It's all in Plato'!  :hello!:
