RE: Determinators or Free Willies?
I voted for compatibalism, since I believe we do have 'free-will' however it is very limited and restricted.

Have you read the posts before this? There was a nice discussion on Compatibilism and Determinism just a few posts back, and a nice video posted on it. I really suggest you check it out if you haven't already. Big Grin

EDIT: BTW, please feel free to change my vote to Determinism if you can, please, guys! Big Grin

I am 100% certain that I am wrong about something I am certain about right now. Because even if everything I stand for turns out to be completely true, I was still wrong about being wrong.

I might be totally wrong about the free will but i also know my limitations. My brain is to much of a blunt object to get the full concept of determination. However, without free will, there can't be such a thing as responsibility and without responsibility my morals are an empty box.
I need free will in order to deny a god.
There is something to say for determinism as well, I know. yet i cant grasp that concept.
You know what... call me religious on this point Undecided

fixed. Still shows you under free will, but the numbers are accurate.
