RE: Why you don't believe in free will if you believe in God/Religion! You don't...

in #life3 years ago

Having a free will does not mean that you will know the outcome of what you wanted to do or what you are doing. Things might turn out to be what you are not expecting even when you think you know what will be the result. So to say that free will is knowing what an outcome will be is totally wrong to me.
Free will is to determine what you want to do whether wrong or right and or you know what the result will be or not.

Essentially, believing in someone, something, that knows all that "is, was and will be" means that you do not believe in free will

Believing in someone does not mean that you did not have free will but it's saying that "I chose to believe in you and you did not force me. I can withdrawl at anytime. I want you to direct my way, decide my fate and do anything you like with me"
So, it is reversible.

Sort:  

No. Free will is being able to determine the outcome of your own future.
Believing in God means that you believe that he knows all that will be.
That means you do not believe you have an actual choice.. lol..
You're the perfect example. You think that you decide your fate, but you don't.. because you believe that some entity knows the future.. Free will is being able to choose your fate, not "believing you choose your fate." :)

Example. If a "God" knew beforehand.. that you were going to change your mind.. You didn't "freely" change your mind.. You acted on pre-determined circumstances...

How did you know that God knew that one can change mind? Even if God knew that you are going to change your mind, It's just like you have a free will to know the outcome of a situation. That does not mean that you manipulated the outcome because you know.
If God wants it, He would have not giving the free will to decide whether to follow Him but will have forced you to do so.
It's just like you setting a contest in a jungle. You know every part and you know what will happen if a contestant takes any route because you set everything: the path, direction sign, and everything you can think of. But you give the contestants the free will to decide which route they will like to take without you forcing them to take it but you know what will be the outcome of each route they take.
Those that mean that if they decide to take the right route you have lay down they have no free will?

Knowing the outcome prior to the events unfolding.. means there was no free will.. you seem to just be ignoring that fact.. rolls eyes you're just like every other religious person I've known. You ignore the facts and the basis that people present to you, and you apply your own logic.

Free will means that no one and no thing, period, knows the outcome..

An "all-knowing" "God" knows what you will choose, before you choose it.. so you didn't choose it, you acted on your design.. that is not free will and will never be. lol
