In my opinnion,animals don't have soul.Sometimes I am thinking about whether the animals go to hell or heaven.I am thinking about will the God justify them for their behaviours.In my youth,I killed so many bugs,spiders,cats and what if I would be punished for them.They may complain about me to God and what I can say about their complaint if they are completelly right?Vice versa,if they have no soul,what is going to happen to them.Will they vanish or rebirth and live seperatelly from our souls.

I think animals have a soul like us. I just don't know where soul go after we die. But if our soul goes to heaven then why can't the animals too. Why god treat us different from the other animals? I don't believe we are that special. It could be that animals' soul goes to heaven and our soul is forever trap on Earth, 'cause we done lots of bads stuff, more than the other animals.

of course they do. I've seen animal spirits, as much as I've seen human spirits. I beleive everything has a soul. you can see the aura on humans, on animals, and even on plants and rocks if you look. everything has a soul. people must live a very lonely life if they think animals are without souls

You've seen animals and humans' spirits?? I never see anything. =( I guess I don't have the kind of sense that you have.

I once trained as a medium, I do Paranormal investigation, and nearly every house we've lived in has had someone else living there too. it's quite normal really. just a knack. anyone can do it with practice.

It's a nice concept to have a soul - something that will be around when we are not. We humans can't get to grips with the thought that we are of so little importance that we vanish when we die. We have to believe there is something else, a soul. So yes, if we can have one then why not animals. Animals (other than human animals) are just as important for the life on this planet.

I guess you are right. If we can have a soul why not other animals as well? What make us different from other animals? Thanks for the response.

You welcome. ^___^ This discussion is so old. I thought I went through all of my old discussions and mark the best responses in all of them. I think I have 20 more discussion to choose the best response to. Too lazy now. Try again when there is nothing else to do.

For sure animals like men have souls. Every living creature that God had created,I believe,has a soul.
