Christians think animals don have souls. Are all veggies atheists?

Your question is a little illogical; you are asking if vegetarians are atheists because you assume they will disagree with the christian belief that animals don’t have souls. Atheists by definition don’t believe in souls. And of course not all non-christians are atheists by any means. Hmm… didn’t really think this through did you? The answer is no, they’re not. Vegetarians vary as widely in their religious beliefs or lack of them as meat-eaters do.

Diet designation and religion are rarely related, though some diet designations are a direct result of religious beliefs. All vegers are not atheists. BTW-No heaven. No animal souls. No human souls. No gods.

You’re making many assumptions here. One being that the only choice is Christian of Atheist. Personally I’m Wiccan, but there are many other options when it comes to religion. Some religions even require or recommend vegetarianism, so saying that all veggies are atheist is automatically wrong. You’re also assuming that an animal does not have a soul simply because the Christian church says it is so. That is a long philosophical argument that I can’t even begin to touch on here. There is also the question of what the soul is – if you’re talking about what we in psychology call “the ghost in the machine” or the life force then I would argue that they do. An immortal “go to heaven or hell” soul is a different thing. Your third assumption is that there is no issue with killing something soulless. I don’t know your religion, but from a Christan perspective I’m going to use this scripture as an example: “And be not afraid of them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rat
