Data has been decided to be a sentient individual in Measure of a Man, and the EMH has a lot more personality, and emotions (!). He has an ego, you can hurt his feelings. That guy has a soul, and deletion means death. Permanent deactivation would be a coma.
But isn't a soul something that survives after death? If he has a soul then deletion doesn't mean he loses his soul.
I'll answer that question when I've died and saw what happened. In my book, everything that is self aware and sentient has a soul.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
