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.
Now go fetch your shine box like a good little Wumpus.
