What part of the blood is the soul being as the blood is being constantly renewed?
In events of blood transfusions, are other people's souls being injected into your body?
Would having sickle cell anemia taint the soul?
1) Are you born with a soul? and if you are is it immutable and unchanging throughout your life or does it develop as you experience things, at what stage during conception is the soul born? Is it as soon as an egg is fertilized or later on?
2) Do all creatures alive have a soul, or only some of them? Which animals do you believe have them, does a Cat have a soul? How about a Flea? An Amoeba? Plants? Moss?
3) Where do you believe the soul resides? If I cut off your arms and legs presumably you soul remains unchanged, but what if you are a live brain detached from your body in a jar, does the brain have a soul if it is still functioning?,what about if I cut the brain in half and was able to somehow keep the two parts functioning independently, which part of the brain would the soul remain in? What if I further divided it into quarters / eighths?
4) If it were possible for a person to be alive without a soul how would we be able to tell him / her from the other people that do have souls? What difference do you feel it would make?

To answer any of your questions, you need to define what the "soul" is.
I bet that if you define it, you will answer these questions yourself (including the one about soul's existence).
So how do you think, what is soul?
