Evolution and the Soul

Sunday is an appropriate day to ponder things like Creationism and Evolution.  Many scientists feel sure that we humans are the product of an evolutionary process.  Sitting here in my living room, without a PhD in any of the sciences, it's fairly silly of me to even bring up a subject like this.  But, who among us doesn't at one point or another have countless questions about life and how we got to where we are.

Okay, let's suppose that we have evolved over millions and billions of years.  The one question that keeps bugging me is this:  At what point during this evolutionary process did the soul come into being? 

It seems to me that if we do have a soul, then every living creature and organism before us, and beside us, also had and has a soul. 

What do you think?
