QuoteI don't see how free will could exist without a semi-god.
Quote from: "Scrybe"Does that make sense?
Quote from: "Scrybe"As to random/quantum/chaos/blah blah blah, I don't see how it's pertinent.
Quote from: "Scrybe"Our "will" as we call it is a self-realization of the signals our bodies receive and the way our brains interpret them and act upon them.
Quote from: "Kestrel"If soverign, then god is in absolute control. If not, then god is incompetent and unworthy of the title of deity.
Quote from: "SteveS"Anyway, I feel that Johndigger and I compromised on the random issue, that neither of the statements:1) There is true randomness in nature2) There is not true randomness in naturecan really be said to be truthful beyond reasonable doubt.
Quote from: "SteveS"I'm still left with my doubt that free will exists. As distasteful as this seems to my own mind.
Quote from: "Scrybe"Ehâ€¦ It grows on you. Althoughâ€¦ my determinism is determined by an all-loving deity. So I suppose that's much more comforting than an undetermined determinism.
Quoteare we all mini-gods?
Quote from: "SteveS"if defeating causality is divine, and people do have free will and do defeat causality, are we all mini-gods?
Quote from: "SteveS"... are we all mini-gods?
