From the moment we are born, we grow up in a certain family - some of us are unlucky, like the children from Africa or other poor countries or families, others have the opportunity to grow in a sane environment, with rich, intelligent or caring parents, helping to their personal growth, to the attainment of knowledge and moral values, later in life. Looking in depth, there's not only the environment, a determining role plays the genetic inheritance, so if you're unlucky - meh, there's another term for the lack of free will - you could be born with lots of 'flaws' you have no control over them. The christian hypocrisy goes farther in its dissonance and teaches that flaws are sins inherited from our ancestors and that we are responsible for what we become later in life.
In what way is it up to us though? People like to think that we have some say in things but I don't see how they come to that conclusion. We are all the result of the law of cause and effect, just like everything else, how would we be any different?

The fact that the brain is complex enough system to generate consciousness tends to bring people to the conclusion that we are different than everything else somehow. Well how is that?
