Fellow sufferers, especially those who have followed us for sometime know my position on the free will debate. Today, I decided to see what other people have written on the matter and for the most part, I honestly was disappointed and I will show you why in a bit. However, before we get going, yours truly requires that whoever decides to invoke a god or gods in the comments to be kind to define what they mean by the word god and why they think the being they have described exists.
In they had a choice, the author basically gives god, whatever that is, a free pass in the matter of a decision by Adam and Eve to eat some fruit and invoke Satan, the one scapegoat christians have used time immemorial to excuse their god from all responsibility. It would be a sad day for us if this god really existed!
The author of Free will and free choice again tells us nothing substantive why we have free will and choice. Maybe they had no intention to tell us anything useful.
Then, I thought now we have someone who has a grasp of what they are writing in Free will vs Determinism only to be left very disappointed. Am interested in his explanation of hwy he thinks he has control over his actions.
The author of sovereignty and free will had no intention to make sense. However, to their credit, we must say they take their belief in god seriously, believing there is an Antichrist and also believes that he should follow god’s will. To rephrase some quote I read a while back, most people believe it is the will of god if it is in line with what they desire, and this I think must be the case here too.
We have in the problem of free will an apologist who believes the problem is really not with free will itself but how it is used, how this makes sense is beyond me though. He tells us his god gave everyone free will so that we could not feel like dolls, seriously! Can’t this apologists tell us something else or do they all consult with WLC and Plantinga before they write their articles?
The author of of free will and redemption sets out by calling BS on those who say they are this or that way because of how they were born and ends up writing a BS post to show why she doesn’t understand the question really. I am interested in knowing at what point in her life she decided she wanted to be a christian and as you already know, am very patient.
The author of free will believes that Jesus[god] died so he could have free will. Don’t you just love this people 😛
And finally in having had my run of free will, who apart from the good prose tells us nothing much, I end this post and ask to hear your thoughts on the matter, maybe someone may just persuade me to change my outlook.
