Russian Scientist Konstantin Korotkov Claims Taking Photos of Soul Leaving Body of Dead Man

Movies and TV shows often portray the phenomenon of a person's soul leaving his body as what happens when a man or woman dies. That depiction matches, more or less, the Christian belief that man is a being made of a physical body and a spiritual soul, and death would cause the soul to leave the human body.
ADG, a UK blog, wrote that Russian scientist Konstantin Korotkov was able to photograph such a phenomenon by using a bioelectrographic camera. He used an advanced technique of Kirlian photography to capture the image of the life force, represented by the colour blue, leaving gradually the body.
Korotkov teaches physics at the St Peterburg State Technical University in Russia and is known for his pioneering research on human energy field. The advanced technique of Kirlain photography that he used, or the Gas Discharge Visualisation technique, "allows direct real-time photos and videos of the energy field of humans, other organisms and material samples such as water and gems."
The blog cited the scientist that the navel and the head are the first parts of the human body to lose their life force, which some people also refer to as the soul, while the groin and the heart are the last.
For some people who died violent and unexpected deaths, it causes a state of confusion on the part of the soul, which returns to the body days after the death.
Skeptics, however, question the claims of Korotkov.
The Web site humanism.al.ru quoted R.S. Suris, a physicist and corresponding member of the Ioffe Physicotechnical Institute in St Petersburg, who said, "Korotkov's digest is perfect gibberish@ In spite of all that, it is pretty thick. Each passage is either a senseless combination of terms used in science, or nonsense, or a combination of terms made up by the author himself, or, at the very least, normal document can one familiarize oneself with what kind of specialist this is, a doctor and bioenergy therapist?"
