  • I have to agree...I don't believe in a soul, but I can't speak for everyone.

  • I accept the theory of evolution, and I do believe we have souls.

  • I believe in evolution because it's science. I believe in souls because I believe we are spiritually and energetically part of the divine.

  • I do

  • The concept of a soul is a part of you that will live beyond death. I don't know if there's an afterlife or not, so I can't say one way or another.

  • One has nothing to do with the other. One is proven, the other is faith.

    Answer by NotPanicking at 4:44 PM on Mar. 2, 2011

  • I ACCEPT the fact of evolution and the Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection as our best explanation of that fact. It's science, so it doesn't require my belief or faith in it.

    I am not sure that I believe in a permanent soul. I do accept that energy is neither created nor destroyed, and feel that the Buddhist concept of Rebirth fits well with this idea. Reincarnation is a similar concept if there were a permanent soul. I will live my life trying to be a kind, compassion, decent human being whether we have souls or not though.
