    Evolutionists say man evolved from monkey ,How did he get his soul?

    When God created man He breathed into man's nostrils and man became a living soul.Animals do not possess a soul .How do evolutionists account for man receiving a soul ? Moreover why are the monkeys not evolving into man today?

    first off who says man has a soul? why do people insist on this idea.
    secondly how do you know monkeys aren't evolving. it took millions of years for this process according to evolution so how would you be able to observe it?you state that when god created man he breathed into man's nostrils and man became a living soul. where did you get the idea from?

    First you need to prove the, objective, existence of soul; the idea of soul and its creation is  just a subjective concept of mankind.  Once you have manged to tear the concept of soul out of the subjective mind and found a place for it in objective reality, you will have a premise on which to base your question.

    Evolutionist DO NOT SAY THAT MAN EVOLVED FROM MONKEYS!  If you are going to talk about evolution, then perhaps you should understand what you are talking about first.

    Coo some of these answers are a little curious.

    The soul of man is what makes him different than the person next to him or her. It's the personality and whether we like it or not, some people's personalities are more appealing than those of others.

    If we had no soul or no personality, there would be no laughter, no love, no music, no art, no literature or any of those other things in life that cause us to feel good--or conversely, bad.

    As for us evolving from monkeys--that's complete bollocks as if anything, it would be apes. Regardless of how we evolved into what we are, everything has a soul or personality. Just look at dogs and cats. Are they all the same? No they're not. That means that they must have different personalities or souls.

    Evolution is not a myth as scientists have seen it in many forms over many species.

    We didn't 'evolve from monkeys' it is much more complex than that.  But keep following the bible and how simplistic it makes things for you.  "Everything is here 'cause god made it' and you'll be fine.  Also ask Rick James about Soul, he is the Godfather.

    The Bible records the origin of soul in Gen 2: 7 'And God breathed into man' s nostrils and man became a living soul' that immortal being in man kind. The Bible records an eternal life as the gift of God for those who are believing in Him and those who reject Christ are sent into the lake of fire is not quenched and their worm dieth not Rev 20:11 -16,Mark 9 :47 a solemn warning of the everlasting punishment for the wicked and those who reject Christ. An unmistakable teaching of the scripture '.There is no record of resurrection of the animals.Ecc 3:21 man's soul is eternal.l

    It is my understanding that as far as evolution goes, man evolved from a monkey like animal that had an opposable thumb. That creature no longer exists because it evolved into us. Scientifically, there were several human types at one time and this has been proven from the skeletons found of them. Case in point, the Neanderthals. They existed at one time and now they don't. As for a soul. It was man who said animals don't have a soul. I have no idea if that is true or not.

    Adam wasn't 'given' a soul when God breathed into his nostrils (a pretty good description of CPR) he 'became a living soul'.

    And - if you read Genesis correctly - you will find that animals, which must include monkeys, are also described as 'living souls'.

    A soul is that which possesses life. Furthermore, the Old Testament is pretty clear about what happens when someone dies - nothing of a person, not even the soul, survives.

    If you are going to cite your bible please get it right. Darwin dealt in facts - and he was never selective when using those facts. He didn't ignore evidence that ran contrary to his theory.

    Evolutionists do not account for man receiving a soul. There is no evidence of a soul. A few hundred years ago my statement would or could have had me killed by the Catholic church for blasphemy. A few hundred years ago they didn't know thought came from the brain. Thought and personality come from the brain. A damaged brain changes thought and personality. If a damaged brain changes thought and personality it changes the (soul). A kind person can become evil. An evil person can become kind. The same thing happens in all mammals. Perhaps the only difference between human thought and the thought of (other) animals is our ability to think critically. If you don't question wether or not we even have a soul you are no different that any (other) animal.

    First off, you are relying on the idea that the soul actually EXISTS.

    And secoundly, we didn't evolve from "monkeys". We evolved from apes. They evolved from monkeys. It is as simple as that.

    Firstly, Evolution is just a scientific insanity. There is nothing as such. Secondly, all animals have a soul. If you ask me to prove it, I have tons of proof, but it seems there are no Christians here, which means you wouldn't believe in the bible, which is the source of my proof.
    We all have souls.
    Evolution is a myth.
    And God is Real, I can't convince you about this, neither can you disprove his existence.

      God is real. The Heavens declare it. The firmament shows it. The empty tomb announces the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The departure of the soul from the body is after death.
