    Question Do animals have souls?

    Advertisements
    While that may seem like an odd question, I came across a post today in the CL Montana rants/raves section that I didn't particularly agree with, and was curious as to what your thoughts/opinions on it might be?...

    Here's what was posted:
    They do not have a soul, spirit etc.. They may have certain personality traits but that is as far as it goes. They do not die and go to "doggie heaven"

    Now my first question is, how does that person know that? Have you ever died and gone to "doggie heaven"? How do you know they don't have a soul/spirit?

    A religious person who studies the bible, would tell you that God makes no promises regarding animals and Heaven..

    I believe they have souls I obviously don't have any facts to back that up, but I just have a feeling they do I guess.

    There is no proof or saying that animals go to Heaven, but I think for those of us that have an emotional tie to an animal or multiple animals, it is a comfort to think there is a Heaven for our beloved pets!

    Nope, they dont... I was taught that in church as well.. and I'm a believer in the Word...
    Within you, I lose myself. Without you, I find myself wanting to be lost again.

    I think also that when I am cuddling with my girls and I look into their eyes that there is a soul behind those golden browns!!!

    I'm not religious, so I wouldn't know anything about that. But I can see if that person was, why then they would make that comment. Nothing in their post said anything in reference to religion though.

    My personal thoughts. I don't know if they have or go to a "doggie heaven" or not, but I do believe that they have a soul.
