I started this topic on another Message Board, but there wasn't any interest in it. So I'm asking it here, hoping for some feedback. I was wondering when you all think a soul is created? I'm not trying to get into any sort of abortion debate, but I was wondering because when God created Adam, Adam was a man. While I'm not a literalist, I do believe in souls (I'm a Christian of course). I would like to think that the soul is created around the same time as a baby is, but then I got to thinking: If a baby dies and, for the sake of the argument, goes to heaven-what sort of person/soul would that baby be? It would have much of a conscious, if you get what I'm saying. So I began to think that maybe the soul arrives when you are a little more mentally mature. The exact moment, I don't know. Anyway enough of my rambling, what do you all think?
