Default Re: Can there be free will in a world where pre-destiny exists?

I still believe we are destined. And the free will I think I have is probably an illusion. But it's a pretty vivid illusion. Like today, If I so chose, I could murder someone, say Phil for instance lol. Or not. That's a big choice with a lot of fallout. But no matter what choice I end up making, it was meant to be that way, because it happened. I subscribe to the notion that if it actually occurs...if it actually takes place and comes to pass....it was meant to be. Because it happened. So while I retain a certain amount of free will, I have no control over the larger picture.

Topics like this really stretch the wrinkles out of my brain.
