Actually science CAN explain the mind and how it controls the body. What you're referring to is consciousness, which is THE big mystery. I wouldn't exactly call science "too limited." Science can explain almost everything in the known universe and why it acts the way it does. Consciousness cannot be explained by science because there is no way to experiment with it, just like all paranormal things. That doesn't mean that it fails, and everything else is wrong. The whole concept of dualism or duality has to do with the spirit and flesh (physical body). Not mind and body. The mind is part of the body. The brain controls the body, not your consciousness, as even when you are sleeping or unconscious the body still functions. The consciousness is just the state of being awake and aware. The thought process, decision making, physical activities, etc etc etc are all caused by the brain, and doesn't need spiritual duality to be explained.
Now with that said, I do believe in a soul, but not because of science, and just because science cannot explain something doesn't mean that it automatically does not exist. Science is proven, though, and you can't discredit it, simply because it can't explain everything yet.
