Re: Can there be free will in a world where pre-destiny exists?
Grea, I like you an awful lot but I'm going to have to disagree.
My look at reality is cold and stark. I see no spirituality, I see nothing but chance events. I see no purpose or meaning and no evidence to demonstrate to the contrary. I hear and see beautiful things and accept that there are plenty of things that humanity just doesn't know about life, the Universe and everything.
I don't believe in destiny. I don't really believe anything. I may as well be a nihilist apart from the a priori harshness of the Cogito. Human mental abilities appear from chance.
The abyss stares back.
Meanwhile, I listen to Beethoven.
