Do you believe that animals have souls?
For christians or muslims, do you believe that animals go to heaven or not?
I do, but my parents tell me they don't, and i refuse to believe that because there are animals are even better than humans.

Depends what you define as a "soul". If by soul, you mean a religious concept, a thing that lives on after you die, then I believe nothing has a soul, neither humans nor animals.
If by "soul" you mean a psyche, so basically the totality of your feelings, thoughts etc. (all the chemical reactions your brains produces) then yes, humans and animals have souls. However, there is a very big difference between humans and animals in that animals do not possess a consciousness. Human beings are the only species that have the ability to think and reflect upon themselves consciously and they are almost the only species on earth (with the exception of chimpanzees and dolphins) that possess a self-awareness (being able to see yourself in a mirror and realizing it's you).0

Well, wtf is a soul even? I don't believe in "souls". I believe in having a conscience, a moral compass, having compassion, being capable of critical thinking etc. But I don't believe every existing being has some kind of supernatural essence in their body that makes them "pure", or whatever a "soul" is.
I believe animals can show compassion and intelligence. I don't believe anyone or any animal has a "soul".0
