An aside: the things your learn from reading

So, I was going through the online collection of Sage Advice clumns at today, when I cam across this question from DRAGON #33...

"Q: Although the Players Handbook does not include them in the description of the Raise Dead spell, may elves and half-orcs be raised from the dead?

A: No, they cannot. They do not have souls, and therefore a wish must be used to bring them back."


Elves and half-orcs do not have souls.... okay, I can MAYBE wrap my head around elves (MAYBE), but half-orcs have no souls? What? Would someone care to explain this existential dilemma to me?
