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

Nice post Grea. Animals experience pain and I think all the other emotions we do. Maybe they can't express them in a way we understand. When I finally saw my cat after 3 weeks (I thought he ran away) I was all kinds of happy. He looked completely indifferent, no emotion like you would see in a dog. But when we leave for vacation, he becomes a wreck, doesn't eat. I caught a toad while fishing last week, and when I thrust my hook point through his thigh muscle, the sound he made let me know for sure he was in pain. He caught me no bass, so I let him off the hook. I bet he felt a little relief at being able to go free. This topic has gotten too deep for me to comment on anymore. You guys amaze me.
