I assume there was/is some deeper question you were intending to ask. Cus all I'm hearing is an echo chamber of yes, affirmative.

I'm going to convince you that you don't have free will :)

But it will have to wait until later, expect a few more posts. I'm not playing my whole hand yet

I thought something similar and have already began preparing my counter argument since I think I know where you're going. Also I knew I had that sinking urge to shout at the top of my lungs ITS A TRAP!

Yes we have free will....with limitations.

Other peoples free will can counteract our own.

I remember when all the neocons said we could invade Iraq, topple sad dam, install a democratic government and it would all take weeks not months and pay for itself. Let's not fall for that load of crap read the rest
