Where do souls come from?
According to bible there were only 2 people in the beginning who started reproducing.
However if there were only 2 people where do all the other souls of newborns come from?
Is there a machine in heaven which is printing souls?

Of course there is. When mine was printed, the machine was out of everything but black ink. Evil_monster

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I can't see why God couldn't just give each newborn a soul. I mean, he apparently did that with the presumably full-grown Adam and Unnamed Woman. Obviously, I don't believe any of this stuff, but I don't see a legitimate point in your objection. Overruled.

So when parents decide to get sex and get pregnant god creates new immortal soul?
So people decide when god should create an indestructible entity?

Well, they certainly decide when to create another person, and if having a soul is part of being human, then I suppose, yes.

No, silly. God makes people horny so that he can print a new one. Of course, if the conditions aren't right he'll burn their souls in hell when they die, but whether or not the conditions are right he still makes them horny. It's a fun game. Thumbsup

Why do you ask questions like this on an atheist forum? This seems like a question for those who believe in souls.

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

RE: Where do souls come from?
Conceptually I always thought of a soul as something the body creates over time, like gall stones, only emerging from the body after a great deal of pain and suffering.

I don't know what you mean by the soul. I think of my consciousness as my soul. I think it is an emergent property of the brain. I don't think there is any reason to consider what the bible has to say.
