    A fetus doesn't have a soul so much as is animated by a soul/spirit which is already committed to the new incarnation-to-be. That commitment (I've been told) is total from the instant of fertilisation and my feeling is that it may be even before that point. That implies that the foetus is never 'without' a spirit/soul. It's debatable that there could be much development of the foetus without early, and then continuing, involvement of a spirit.

    I suppose that animation of the fertilised egg may be a temporary collaboration between the mother and the new soul but that's just my conjecture - I simply don't know. I do feel, however, that beyond a very early stage - whenever that may be - the animating spirit is increasingly involved with the developing foetus.

    Not sure if any of that is what you were looking for, David.....:confused:

    Mac, What do you mean by soul/spirit? The spirit is invisible and the soul, I guess, is the incarnation, or the being who is animated?

    It's just my way, kim, of describing the animating element or our total selves, our 'body and spirit' so to speak. :)

    The difference between soul and spirit doesn't matter much (in my view) so I write soul/spirit to cover both terms, the words being the ones most commonly used.
