@nellyj I accepted. My apology's I'm still getting use to the format here.

"I have the free will to throw my bible away!" Haha!
@julian Thanks for watching
It took a whopping eight minutes and 40 seconds for Aristotle to be mentioned. I'm impressed! 😂Overall, I overwhelming agreed with the con. I actually agreed with 100% of what the con said. However, I think there were many points covered that were mutually agreeable on.I believe we definitely make choices, but those choices could potentially be measured and predicted with an extremely high accuracy if we had a powerful enough computer or intelligence.Also, yuck -- Heineken.
@ajdydasco Thanks for watching. and yes, Yuck Beer haha
@ajdydasco I often think about the potential quantifiable nature of choice and would love to see a computer develop an algorithm to measure it! One click away from The Singularity....
Thanks again For the awesome time, @marxvsmith
A friend sent me this hahahttps://youtu.be/bpOyQhgM1FU
@nellyj If you would have opened with this, there is nothing I could have done to come back.
@behind_the_veil_of_ignorance lol I wish I'd had it in my bag before the debate 😂
My favorite philosophical argument! Great to see you both unpack this challenging topic. I have always been in the school of pre-determination not in the traditional sense, but moreso in that true choice is always impacted by a history of other choices interacting with our experience. @behind_the_veil_of_ignorance you did a great job of addressing the randomness argument even at a molecular level.
@drsteve Thank you!
@drsteve well the randomness argument can't really be proven or disproven, so that just boils down to if you believe in it or not...
@pokemaster thus you agree with me as you say it's up to ones personal choice, i.e. Free will. BOOM!
Great debate! Just got to watching this
@alexistc_ hi Alexis. Thanks for taking the time to watch and leave detailed comments. I've had some really good and I hope both entertaining and enjoyable debates with @behind_the_veil_of_ignorance. I know I enjoyed them. Hope you enjoy our other ones as well on directly related topic can like the one on morality
@nellyj Of course! Again, I have to commend you and @behind_the_veil_of_ignorance for taking on such a complicated topic. I will definitely take time to see some of your other debates.
@alexistc_ Thank you for some smart feeeback. I think your idea about relating it to the stories you mentioned would be a fantastic way to look at the subject. I'm not much of a theater guy, but I will look into how these things tackle this question. Are you trying to get that resident judge status? You have my endorsment.
@behind_the_veil_of_ignorance Thanks for the endorsement! In reference to the plays you can go on Shmoop.com to get an idea of how these plays related to fate vs. free will. A lot of classic literature is packed with it so it shouldn't be too difficult. In an argument you can then relate your side to the play/book.
