Re: Can there be free will in a world where pre-destiny exists?
We live in a world where pre-destiny exists. We are all pre-destined to die.
Our path to that destiny is not pre-determined. That's where free will enters the equation.
I believe in chaos theory. I believe in entropic destiny. I understand the concept of the 'giant hand', and I do not believe that it is attached to an entity in any form, especially an anthropromorphised one.
What confuses most people is that, while we do have free will that is constrained by entropic destiny, so do those around us. The effects their choices have on us can appear to be evidence of our own destiny, but they are not.
