Spirit in man - part 2

In the context of what happens after human death Ecclesiastes 12:7 concludes with the phrase, "And the spirit will return to God who gave it." Many view this to support the concept of human beings having an immortal soul, but is this really what is referred to here?

by Steven Britt & Victor Kubik

Scripture doesn't talk about human beings having an immortal soul-- something that existed prior to birth and living on consciously after death. Yet, in several places, the spirit in man or of man is mentioned as returning to God at death.
