Here is wht you say:

"Since no fossils of psyche exist, the theory of evolution can say nothing about the origin of consciousness and human psychical life. So, even if our organism derived from a previous animal organism, we could have no conscious psychical life if God had not created in each of us a soul. Without a soul, we would be only biological robots, able to act and react, but without any consciousness and incapable of feeling any sensations, emotions, thoughts, etc."

I am presuming that you think only humans have a soul. So therefore animals do not have a soul and cannot if you are correct have consciousness. Perhaps you have no experience with animals. I have considerable experience with all kinds of domesticated animals and I can assure you that they are conscious and have the ability to make decisions.
