As I have said when we have talked, free will is an illusion.

That depends on which definition you're using.

It is still an open question.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

That is an opinion. The question of the existence of free will is not yet settled.

But at least now we have the technology to start to answer the question. My guess is we will find that we are not what we think ourselves to be at all, but something much, much larger.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Tell me when you are able to control your genes, each and every external and internal influence on your brain, and consciously make a decision without any previously determined factors.

It is a logical conclusion based on what we currently know in neurology, biology, and physics. If evidence suggests something contrary, I will willingly (excuse the pun) change my position. Drinking Beverage
