My belief in souls.
I know a lot of otherkin do not believe in souls but, I myself am to the point where I absultely believe souls exsist.

Re: My belief in souls.
If you absolutely believe that a soul exists, can you explain to me what it is you view as a "soul"?

Honestly, I believe that a good deal of the "disbelief" comes in the largely ambiguous nature of the term itself as well as its common usage in certain religions that may or may not convey the intended meaning.


As for claiming that we have souls because, without them, we would not be otherkin, is to disregard a number of other explanations for the origin and existence of otherkin.

I can't really explain what a soul is, all i know is that it carries something from one body 2 the next..... I do not know exactly what they are meant for but I do know that they exist inside us. Maybe not all of us, but some of us.

Re: My belief in souls.
If you don't know what they are or what they are for...then how can you be so sure they exist?

Re: My belief in souls.
I can't. I'm actually pretty positive I don't have a soul at least not as they are portrayed in media. I don't particularly miss it other than wondering what it's supposed to be anyway. I don't really care if they exist or not.

I'm the one with the power around here. -Rumplestiltskin

I just don't get how you can "know" what you feel and believe is for a "purpose higher than our knowledge" is your soul when you don't know what a soul is or what it's really for. That's like saying "I know I own a toaster and I believe they have something to do with bread...but I'm not sure what a toaster is exactly or what it's entirely for". It's something of a logical fallacy. I mean, for all you know what you think is your soul is your psyche, spirit, faith, flying spaghetti monster, psychosomatic, the possibilities go on.

Re: My belief in souls.
Hun I love you but I don't think its fair to say the soul is what makes us otherkin. On the other hand I van offer an explanation as to what a soul is, well to me atleast. A soul is living energy generally souls are no different from species to species save for the way the energy feels or flows it is the main driving force of our bodies and our knowledge and memories in life effect the soul and develops what our souls are in the end and souls who are older can effect the body. (mentally mainly) on the species that the soul infact ended up settling on.

This supports angila's claim but as I stated before it is my opinion of what the soul is.

Re: My belief in souls.
I personally believe that souls exist, and that they are the life energy that emanates from every living thing. I also believe we are souls, rather than we have a soul.

There's a lot more to my ideas than that, but those statements pretty much sum up the relevant bits.
