Yeah I'm bored right now . So let's kill time here . Let's rehash the old debate of free will vs determinism . What do you guys believe ? Free will or determinism ? I'm a determinist , so I don't believe that we act with total freedom and I don't believe that our lives are shaped only according to our actions . I will give some examples : We don't choose to be born at all . We don't choose our family and friends . We don't choose our childhood experiences that mostly shape our lives later when we are adults. We don't choose other people actions . The actions of other people often affects our lives . We don't choose to born female or male We don't choose our sexual orientation. We mostly don't choose our deaths . Yes some people kill themselves but mostly because some factor affects their decision to end their lives . ( Like depression , other mental illness etc) To the people here that believe in free will . How you can show that free will is real ?
