You couldn't have explained it simpler and I couldn't agree more.
It's interesting how misunderstood this simple logic can be where people can talk about it for years and not understand it.

Are you by chance a reporter for CNN that is owned by Obama and the Clintons? "Look into the light. You are getting sleepy. You will do what we tell you. You will believe what we tell you. You will see what we tell you." Give me a break, free will is in everyone. We make choices every day according to what we like. Well, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe you should tell me what I do. I wonder what I will be fed for lunch today? I wonder how I'm going to get to work today? I wonder when I will go to bed today? Please tell me so that I can be ready.
Remove all influences and then you have a pure choice which would appear to an outsider as random.
If there is no influence it is based on will alone.
I studied ants running through a maze. When they first come to an intersection, they choose a way to go. How is this choice made if there were no influences involved?
Im just suggesting rather than the completely black and white diametrical opposed nature of freewill vs predestination which cannot seem to be resolved using current logic that we are somehow influenced form the quantum realm.
