I don't know whether this is the right place to post this thread and i dunno if its already been discussed. A search feature on ATS would've been
Does man posess free will? Or are his actions, thoughts, decisions and choices already predetermined?
What does it mean to have free will? How can a person's decision be his/her own? After all, one makes a choice after a thought process which is
influenced by his previous experiences, upbringing, genetic constitution, surroundins, present circumstance, etc. Are'nt these factors beyond his
control? Even if after the thought process, u say that his/her decision is ultmately his/hers, what is that final influence that 'causes' the
decision? Isn't such an influence beyond control of the individual?
