I am not sure what my opinion is on the first question these days. I was simply trying to offer a context in which the Pope's statement was made. As to the latter comment, within the Christian tradition, only human beings have souls so the only souls are human. They are created by God, they are not parts of God. There is often a distinction made between soul and spirit. Spirit sometimes means simply the animating force. Thus, animals have spirits, but not souls. There are also lines of...

What is funny is that this "Christian" thought is borrowed from Platonism.

According to Ezekiel "The soul that sins, dies"; in Genesis, it claims that the "soul" is actually the Breath of God which retuns to breath after death. This doesn't support the Christian notion of an Eternal Soul that becomes human at conception (that's almost like saying that life begins...
