Does free will exist?
I don't know if free will can be fully explained until consciousness can be explained.

What if I told you that not only does free will not exist, but neither does morality.

Morality
-Principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior.


Right, so how do principles not exist? Sure, not everyone agrees on what is and is not moral, but as soon as you make any distinction between good and bad, what should be done or not be done, what you aught to do; you've implicitly created a morality by definition. Morality exists, even if only in principle or as a concept or human construct.

Sure. I agree.

RE: Does free will exist?
I don't believe in free will.

Wait?! Wasn't that a song by Rush?

Because I do believe in music.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

That's okay, because RUSH believes in you. Tongue

I think Hitchens said it best
"Yes I have free will; I have no choice but to have it."

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!
