I've heard pastors preach that animals have no souls and therefore do not move on after they die. Do you believe this?

Animals have souls too. That is why they have almost the same biological parts like us. They are able to move from one place to another.That is why vegetarians do not eat animals.And animals also reincarnate. However they move to another body of an animal too.

Do you mean in the way of reincarnation? In a sense?

everything has a soul, just like human, it something you cant see walking around, but sometime when you look into their eyes, you can see something inside of it looking back at you

I think that's true. I think there's more to every living being than what is easy to see.

I do think animals have souls just like us humanes do. They are more compassionate and forgiving than we are.

I think so too. Animals can be a lot more understanding and peaceful as well.

Interesting theory. I would never deliberatey kill something though unless I had no other choice, especially not just to find that out..

Absolutely not. If heaven is a place where my dogs aren't going, then neither am I!

Yes and No. According to the Bible the animals as well as the human beings *are* souls. Having some concious part of you flying away when you die is one of the misunderstandings that florish among most people. The Bible teaches: Humans and animals are souls. A soul can die. (Ezekiel 18:4) You could read Genesis chapter 1 in this Bible translation, which follows the original Hebrew language very carefully: www.watchtower.org/e/bible/index.htm You will see that all animals are called living souls. There is a resurrection for human beings. Unlike animals we were not created to die from the beginning and God will in the future make it possible for all of us to get everlasting life.

I believe that animals have no soul. I believe that they are here for our enjoyment and entertainment. As far as where they go when after they die, I believe that they are just nonexistant. The only thing that remains of them are the memories of them.
