    When did humans attain souls?
    No fairy tales permitted.

    You're asking a question about people's beliefs and then saying "no beliefs permitted". I disapprove.

    I know -- crushing, I'm sure.

    If someone's beliefs are in fairy tales it is not my concern. I'm merely asking those who believe in souls how and maybe when humans acquired this soul during the process of evolution?

    Why do you even ask theists these questions when you are going to dismiss and refuse to consider any answer?

    I'm open to answers, I'm not open to fairy tales. If fairy tales are all the godists have then that should tell them something.

    Unless you consider the soul more than a fairy take your question is nonsensical.

    If you think ensoulment is a fairy tale, then you literally just asked theists a question about their "fairy tale" and then said "no fairy tales". Do you not see how bonkers cray-cray that is gus. I mean wtf, I don't even

    Well, many theists are creationist!  It depends on what you take 'many' to mean.  

    I think that many of the theists who reject evolution do so because they see 'evolution' and 'soul' as incompatible.

    According to the Google graph thing, Creationism came into prominent use in the 1970s or 1980s.  It's not an exponential curve, but a relatively level line meeting a linear progression with an angle at some point on a specific year.  I don't recall seeing the word creationism until I attended higher education.

    The major reason is that evolution means they die and it's all over, their hubristic fear won't allow for that.

    This is all about concepts, and as far as I'm concerned the soul is, say, the vital energy that makes us living beings. This vital energy is just a way to explain why we are alive philosphical speaking, but in reality we don't know yet what mechanisms make us alive. So, with that description, animals have soul as well. Hence, humans have always had souls, because before attaining the final stage of human evolution they had souls already.
