This work discusses a God-Soul Theory. The theory advocates that a human-like god exists only subjectively and is not objectively real. A monotheistic first father god is a subjective way of identifying an unknown beginning and a way of orienting to what is good, caring, and protective of humans. The God-Soul Theory proposes that all gods, especially the monotheistic first father god of Middle East origin and Western culture is an artistic creation by word artists that occurs only in the cerebral cortex of the human brain. The God-Soul Theory further asserts that the human soul is real and yet, is not a shining divine presence within but is a triune forcible hunger for food, sex and reproduction, and aggression that forces life to live and survive. The soul is a continuation of the energy elements of the earth, and is a continuation of a cosmological force that moves the universe and ever exists on its own.
