Might help if you proved there was such a thing as a "soul:" to begin with. Good luck with that part, first you have to define just what it is you are talking baout.

For those who care, the bible is clear about what goes on in heaven and it's pretty obvious there are no animals. Heck, the bible doesn't even *mention* cats at all and dogs get some really bad press.

Rabbits are unclean animals biblically and so I doubt old Jehovah is suddenly going to let that sort of thing in. Showing up with a pet snake is bound to get you into a really difficult situation too.

But if there are no animals in heaven what will we barbeque? What will we make stew of? Heaven without hamburgers? Me thinks I smell heretic.
