Adam ( All of Adam ) was a soul according to Genesis 2:7.
An immortal soul is a false religious teaching outside of Scripture just taught as being Scripture.
So, a person is a living soul, and at death a person becomes a dead soul, or a lifeless soul.
Adam went from non-life, to life, and returned back to non-life as per Genesis 3:19.
A person can Not ' return ' to a place he never was before.
Adam simply went back to where he started the dust of the ground.

If the soul was immortal ( death proofed ) there would be No need for a resurrection of the living.
The 'sinning soul dies' as per Ezekiel 18:4,20, and the soul can be destroyed as per Acts 3:23.
Satan is a sinner, and according to Hebrews 2:14 B Jesus will destroy Satan.
All the wicked will be ' destroyed forever ' as per Psalm 92:7 ( annihilated ).
Resurrection lies less against the evidence than "immortal soul" but most Christians I knew of (and trust me there were plenty) pushed for the belief in both ideas. "immortal sleeping souls" at death, and resurrection. It could have been because, without an idea of continuation, they would not have been happy caring about the "new" resurrected soul.
