This is something I have spent way too much time thinking about lately. Do you think people have a free will? If not, does it matter? I think we automatically feel we do have free will and even when I start to doubt it, the feeling doesn't go away. If it's just an illusion, it's gotta be the most convincing and the most universally accepted one. Try to really think about your own thoughts. Can you really decide what your next thought is gonna be? If not, can you be really free, since your thoughts determine your actions? Even if you can do what you want, are you free if you can't decide what you want?
