Free Will posted 13 July 2004 in Philosophy DiscussionFree Will by Taliesin, Peralogue

I like the idea that some people "have" free will while others don't. It's a kind of funny thought, some of us having the capability to do whatever we choose while others are forced into a certain preordained destiny. Obviously that wasn't at all what you were saying, but it still amused my mind for a few moments <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

I do like what you said, though, about how free will isn't something we can "know" exists or not, that whichever belief helps one to construct the most beneficial world-view should be applied. It's interesting how two people can take a similar belief and yield such different conclusions from it - something may seem entirely hopeful to one person, while in another it creates an entirely depressing view of how our world operates. view post
