If executive awareness is spirit why don't theists believe animals have a soul?
Local theist, Paisley, insists that the spirit we argue does not exist is encapsulated inside consciousness - the executive awareness that neuroscience has not managed to adequately describe.
Pais claims that spirit can only be known by subjective personal experience - cancelling the objective scientific imperative. But his case must include animals. They, apparently, have consciousness, too.
If, as Pais insists, spirit is limited to consciousness and is subjective, do we think his argument must be applied equally to all obviously conscious creatures including dogs, whales and chimpanzees?
