Animals make choices on a regular basis. They pick one mate over the other. They strategize and set up ambushes on their prey. They play dead in the face of danger. They look for the perfect pebble to attract their mate. They build nests for their offspring. They refuse to go outside during a violent thunderstorm in the winter. They sniff each other’s…well, you get my point.
Animals make choices all the time. So how can it be said they don’t have a rational soul? All of the above activities involve some kind of choice or rationalization, right?
