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.

You have just begun reading the sentence you have just finished reading.
