this is just a version of pascal's wager...it's better to assume you have free will because if you had it, but believed in determinism, you would be
unnecessarily limiting your powers...it's like ARGUE FOR YOUR LIMITATIONS AND YOU GET TO KEEP THEM...among other proverbs...
whereas if I believe in free will, but determinism was true, well that's just another random false thing I am deterministically stuck with believing
anyway...so I can't help it, so I don't need to worry about it, and it's probably far from the worst thing I'm deterministically stuck with, on
the list of blind predilections, know what I mean?
determinism is more suitable for plants than animals, dead things than live things, weak things than strong things, it's giving up...
it's being over becoming...it's not western, progressive,cowboy,satanic,forward or American...so, in other words, like everything else, it's just a
matter of taste...and my tastes run in the other direction...
