"Your belief that humans are the only ones with souls is interesting. It suggests that a soul is not neccesary for life and consciousness to occur. In that case, why do you view them as neccesary in humans?"

I do not believe a soul is nessesary for consciousness. I think birds act like their parents, which have acted like their parents, which has gone on since the begining. It's mostly instinct.

Humans are different. We obviously have something way different from animals. I don't think you will disagree with this. The way we form societies, interact with eachother, and have a knowledge of right and wrong, is completely different from animals. They may do some of these things on a very basic level, but nothing like us.
