People like to throw around the metaphorical word "Spirit" without giving it a concrete definition. That's the problem.

Ok first let me say that I made an error by putting true or false. I suppose we can leave true as meaning we are only human, and false meaning we are spiritual beings. I am not going to have much time today but I will say what I can for now. If I could figue out how to space my words out that would be great, bare with me____My response to Rebirth is this. You want me to give you a solid definition of spirit, and I tell you that it is impossible. Every attempt at defining spirit will fail. Spirit is not to be defined, it is to be known. So how do you know spirit? It is the very being that you are, and it is found in what I like to call the silence of God. What exactly is the silence? It is when you clear all thoughts, and words from your head, that is when God speaks through your spirit. I cannot do it for you, because to know spirit is a personal relationship with God. It is a realization that just doesn't happen over night.

We are both according to the bible.
In fact we are a three part being.
The soul is our mind, will, and emotions.
The body is the fleshly desires and what our soul and spirit temporary live in.
And the spirit which is made in the same image and likeness of God is our true selves, that is dead to sin, until re-born through the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
The bible also states that God is a spirit and that He is love, and that God's love is wide, deep, long, and high. So in essence God is like a four dimension being that we who were spiritually dead could not come to know through understanding but only through faith. Once reborn, we can begin a relationship with God and begin to truly understand Him.

I can pull all the references if you want me too.
But if we can skip the "is God real or not" debate, then finding all the answers in the bible for what we are, what God is, and what His plan for us is, is all in the bible.
