Since our current model of the universe doesn't explain it, obviously it doesn't exist

Explain what, exactly? What observed phenomena are you saying our model doesn't explain? It is precisely because we have no need to generate an explanation that we say it doesn't exist.

let's all laugh at those backwards idiots who question the eternal, unchanging and complete truth of Physics As It's Known As Of AD 2008

You would be better off questioning the belief system that asserts that 'souls' must exist, rather than the physics that does not require such a hypothesis.
