Spirits (Souls) are a very common question that athiests play when debating with theists. The question follows:
If every person has one soul then where do the additional souls come from when people are born daily? If say, all souls come from a single source then where do these new souls come from?
Theoretically, the question posed is as follows. Say one instant of time there are N persons and hence, N souls. Say there is a single main source of these souls called God. Since we say all souls come/go from/to this God (ref. Bhagavadgita), the theoretical capacity is N souls. As souls start going out of this container of souls (which we named God), the number of souls in God should decrease, i.e for M people on earth, the souls remaining in God is N – M. Now lets say as population increases the number of persons increases from N to N+1, … Now the question is how/where do this extra souls come from?
I was always trying hard to find a convincing solution for myself; until I discovered there was one more intangible thing in this world that doesnt change based on the amount of it borrowed from the source i.e. followed this same property exhibited by souls & God – Knowledge
