I know, there’s a lot of buzz about “free will” in science and philosophy. I’ve studied both and all I can say is that the entire debate is ridiculous—nothing but an intellectual’s chance to act out his desire for public mental masturbation.
Sure, freedom exists, and sure, everyone has a will. But putting these two concepts together doesn’t make any sense.
