Do only mammals have souls? What about simpler creatures like birds, turtles and fish?

    Anything capable of love has a soul. It's up to the individual to understand if what they're seeing in birds and turtles is love (most people can't even tell when their dog or cat is not feeling well).

    Not all Mammals have "souls", only ones that are "self realized"---A good rule of thumb is "Higher" Animals that have been given a NAME to focus around---Like a pet Dog (Fido) Horse, Cat, monkeys or Dolphins---According to SPIRITUAL LORE, of course---Such higher animals have evolved nearly to the point of self realization from a "group soul" to individuals souls---Often given a NAME in a pet situation , is enough at this stage to have individualization in many cases.----This is why we often have Dog, cat and Horse "Ghosts" as well as human ones--if conditions are right.

    Unfortunately, we will never know the truth about souls in our lifetimes.

    Nothing has a soul, not animals, and not humans either, that's just bronze-age mythology.

    No one has ever proven souls exist at all.

    According to the Christian Bible, no animals have souls only people. Actually there is no proof or even convincing evidence souls exist.

      There certainly is no objective evidence that souls exist. They are just fiction used in con games.

    http://encyclopedia.summitlighthouse.org/index.php... has a good article.

    C. S. Lewis wrote a good novella (little novel) about a soul and visiting heaven, "The Great Divorce."

    "Imagine Heaven" by John Burke is also worth reading.

      None of that stuff is worth reading!

    The simpler creatures were born as a result of having a mother. They were someone's little child. They are beings worthy just like us.  Yes, they have souls. If you see pics of heaven there are always birds flying around, etc. And I would wager turtles and fish are there too. If God made them, he would be sick to destroy them at the end for no reason.

    Souls do not exist, for mammals or otherwise.

      You are quite correct.
