Does your Soul has weight? 21 grams experiment





  There are long and lengthy debates on what happens to human when they die.
   
 One of the most interesting question is whether there is something called soul that leaves the body when we die.


 Said "Yes" a physician named Duncan MacDougall in 1907. He has attempted to measure the weight of six of his patients who were about to die. He noticed that the patients lost around 21 grams of weight.

 Though this has been widely criticized to the small sampling (Only 6 patients) and some patients results contradict with others(Some patients lost weight and started gaining more weight eventually), This was published by all popular magazines and got popular at the time.


The New York Times magazine reported that MacDougall was hoping to run experiments to take photos to prove his experiment but MacDougall died in 1920
