Armstrong and others point out that if the origin of the soul is postulated by dualism in the continuum of biological evolution, it is difficult to identify the source of such a dramatic leap in the progress of evolution, difficult also to locate a moment when this leap took place given the data available about the rise of species. / Richard J.
