First 166 words of the document:

The soul is passed down from parents
Closer to modern science
Fits in with Hick's idea that soul does not refer to an extra something implanted by God
One of the two Biblically plausible views of the origin of the soul
View that human beings are born as whole beings, materially (body) and immaterially (soul)
Genesis 2:7 "Then the LORD God formed a man[c] from the dust of the ground and breathed
into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being" ­ this makes Adam
become a living soul ­ nowhere in the Bible does God breathe life into someone again ­
suggests the soul is passed on
Traducianism implies only Adam had a soul created directly by God
All of creation fell to sin when Adam fell, suggests the soul is inherited
Contrasts with creationism, that believes that all souls are created directly from God
