    It depends on what you mean by "soul".

    If you mean some kind of spirit that lives inside of your physical body, then no they don't have that because it's pure fantasy. If you mean consciousness, well, they probably have it but much less than humans. The "mind" is nothing but chemical reactions in your brain.

    doesn't mean they have souls. It just means they don't want me torturing them, killing them for no reason, etc. And I don't. I just don't care if you do, or if they enter dog in dog fights, or cock fights, or whatever.

    And neither do people. Just because we want to think we do, doesn't make it so.

    Exactly. The "soul" is a made up concept. Another idea conjured up by religions to make humans feel better about themselves.

    In my mind, it's like the case of law... it's false until proven true. I have beliefs also, but they're a lot more science based, like life outside of our Earth for example.

    That's the thing. Mine is just based on faith and hope, just like the soul. It's not true... yet. :) When I speak of life outside of Earth, I hope you aren't thinking of like little green, big eyed aliens.

    The Bible doesn't teach that Man has a soul, it says that he "came to BE a living soul", so man doesn't have one, he is one.

    Pish posh! :p I don't exactly understand how man returned the compliment though. Not what what Monsieur Voltaire means by "compliment".

    Means that just as man is a creation of god, god is a creation of man.

    Oooh I see. Sorry. I have a tough time with analyzing things such as that and literature. I'm currently doing a 3 page analysis in French on one paragraph from a 19th century French novel. I've been working on it for the past 7 hours and still have 3 paragraphs to go.

    If a tree falls on a cow in an Indian forest, does your soul swerve to avoid it, or stop for hamburgers?

    Wow personnification.... hmm... I think my soul can fly so I'd never have that situation. :p I'm not a fan of hamburgers either. :p

    well, we're both gambling then.... If I am wrong.... I don't get anal probed (which may be something you're into thinking about....) If you're wrong.... well, lets just say I'd rather get anal probed.
