  • Hick and Traducianism
    • Definition: An early Christian teaching that souls were passed down from parents rather than uniquely implanted by God.
      • This idea is more in keeping with modern science (e.g. Genes) and fits in with Hick's idea that soul does not refer to an extra something implanted by God.
    • The Roman Catholic Church teaches that individual souls and created and implanted by God.
    • 3rd Century bishop Tertullian: Souls were passed down from parents (Traductionism)
