  •  Ok, well, "How can you have free will?" (0+ / 0-)

    Implying 'free will' doesn't exist for any reason (god, the physics of your body is deterministic, whatever) doesn't mean anything if you cannot describe a condition in which free-will exists.

    And simply saying free-will could exist if god did not exist and physics were not deterministic doesn't mean anything if you cannot describe how a non-deterministic system differs from a deterministic system.

    And, if you need a loop-hole: the physics of the body is deterministic (as-if that means anything), but the physics of the mind is not.  I can act a-causally and perform a real action now based on perceived future events.  It is hardly a deterministic process.

    To any wingnut: If you pay my taxes I'll give you a job.
