if Adam and Eve for example were the first two humans...

    where did their souls come from? And if they had a child etc...i always assumed you were only reincarnated if you died young. But I know so many older people who are completely un-evolved in every way. I always think they have another 100 lives to live before they learn anything...

    Your assumptions about reincarnation are far from anything I've read about it, and Adam & Eve concept comes from another school of thought, even as an allegory.

    i used Adam and Eve as an example as humanity either spontaneously erupted or evolved from apes...so where did the souls come from?

    Hi Cat,

    I'm not actually big on the evolved from apes thing, but I know plenty of nice people who have bought into it. So, I'm not really motivated to buck the current on that one. Anyhow, the two prevailing ideas seem to be either: (1) there is a big long evolutionary process involved by which immature souls/spirits which have been (or are being) created develop/evolve to something higher and better via reincarnation; or (2) there was an initial creation of souls/spirits, and some or many fell (kaboom!) perhaps in varying degrees, and are in the process of working/perfecting themselves back to where they were before their fall via reincarnation. Maybe some combinations of these are possible. I dunno.

    As to Genesis, there are so many possible interpretations of the first few chapters that it boggles the mind. However, there is a current of thought going back at least to Philo of Alexandria and also seen in the Gnostics, Cathars and other similar sects, that sees the eviction from Eden/Paradise as being an eviction from a more heavenly realm into the physical world of flesh, being symbolized by the clothing of Adam and Eve with "skins". The Cathars, for example, longed to put off their "tunics of flesh" and rise back up into the heavens they had left. For most of these groups, getting off the Wheel of Birth and ascending back to their ancient home is the goal of spiritual life and the reincarnation process.

    On this board, I think you will find that most are adherents to some version of (1). Many coming from a Judeo-Christian or just an older Western stream tend to be adherents to some version of the "fall and return" scenario (2), this would include Edgar Cayce (to the extent I understand him).

    I hope this helps a little.

    Cordially,
    S&S

    New souls incarnate as well as old souls reincarnate. Because of population growth, there would have to be new souls as well as old ones who have had past lives. When the old souls stop reincarnating, then they will be replaced by new souls. That's also why some people don't remember or believe in past lives. So the first people and their children would have all had new souls, and then when they died they would have reincarnated into a new baby, the same way it works now.

    That's my opinion anyway.

    I don’t believe in old souls and young souls. Souls are ageless. Even people who reincarnate for the first time are not necessarily immature souls. On the contrary I would say.
    I believe in souls with great capacity for amnesia and other with less.
    And I have also never believed that the first so-called primitive people were immature. Those souls were just like us nowadays. Only with limited tools.

    And about our growing population: I find it really funny that people think we are running out of souls. Imagine yourself our Universe, it’s enourmous. And it’s not the only Universe. There are more. We all come from far away and there are so many more of us souls. There is no shortage .

    The origin of the soul is not the Earth, as this is only one of many places a spirit can send its energy. The spiritual energy that occupies other living life forms, such as apes, prairie dogs, fish, trees, or grass, is from the Master Mind. The human body is an experimental vehicle for spirits to use during their development. Spirits are continually created, and eventually return back to the Creator during their final ascension.
