crizon Posted July 12, 2009 Report Share Posted July 12, 2009 You do not have free will. However, you will go and listen to this: The Leonard Peikoff Show Clip - Free Will or Determinism (YouTube recording of a portion of one of Dr. Peikoff's radio show, a discussion on free will versus determinism.) You will then go and listen to these portions of some of Dr. Peikoff's podcasts: Episode 16 -- May 26, 2008 Question: Did determinism hold true on this planet until humans obtained their volitional capacity? (Last question; at about 12:40) Episode 34 -- October 27, 2008 Question: Do our material brains comprise our entire consciousness, and if so, doesn't that mean that there is no free will? (Next to last question; at about: 11:30) Episode 48 -- February 09, 2009 Question: How did Epicurus reconciled free will with all the atoms that merely react by hitting each other? (About 4:20) Episode 55 -- March 30, 2009 Question: If there was a being that was so intelligent that it always knew the correct action to take, wouldn't that knowledge be irresistible, determining every action of such a being, effectively negating it's free will? (About 5:20) After listening to these various clips, you will return here and report on your experience. You have no choice in the matter! Thanks for the links. I may not have a free choice, that doesn't mean I'm predictable Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
