Question of the Day

Posted by olvlzl

Proposed: Science has proven that "free will is a myth".

Please discuss, including an explanation of how democracy and personal rights can survive this belief.

This assumption seems to be a question that underlies a lot of present day thinking and we can’t avoid confronting it. It’s cropped up no less than three times in my surfing the web and it’s in today’s Boston Globe, it’s clearly a question that is ripe for investigation. You've heard me on this subject before, now it's your turn.

Update at c. 3:10 PM I’ve been coming back to this thread to see what you’ve been writing. It’s excellent, proving one thing, holding off on posting that 847 word diatribe I wrote was a good idea. Please, keep on. This is good.
