Sir, you assert the existence of free will prima facie. Bold.

Directed at BR. He's catholic and has argued for free will in the past if I remember correctly. I couldn't give two craps about the academic argument over free will. Without a nonhuman perspective it's impossible to observe and test. I was merely reminding him that choice is synonymous with free will. Thus choice does not eliminate randomness, when looking throigh the Christian free will lens.

I am, and have. I'm trying different angles. I ran across an article on IO9 about a study that said choice was predictable, but the number of variables makes it extremely difficult.

Maybe we're just fooling ourselves into thinking we're better than we really are. AND and NAND gates always operate the same way, and all that jazz.
