Weight of the soul

Did you know the body actually gets lighter at the time of death?  Its not substantial, but is measurable with acutely accurate instruments.  In an experiment in the early 20th Century, Duncan McDougall determined, in an experiment consisting of 6 patients who died from tuberculosis, that the this loss averages 21 grams, his estimated mass of the soul.
How neat is that?  So, what do you think?  Do you think this miniscule weight loss supports the idea of the soul exiting the body, or is it something easily explained by biology?
