I agree. Nobody has a soul. The unfortunate reality is that we all end. Data is just as human as any of us.
If no one has a soul then what exactly did Kirk and Janice Lester transfer to each other's body?

Or are you all only defining 'soul' as 'consciousness that survives death'?

Just the later. The consciousness transfer between Kirk and Janice did not dissipate out into the universe. That energy had a body to go to.
