I know this is a very touchy subject and it's something that I feel is at the very basis of our train of thought when examining human behavior.
From my understanding "free will" is action without influence or cause whether that's a physical motion or a thought.
Now I don't really believe in free will but that's not to say I fully understand my actions or thoughts but I do believe that my actions and thoughts have been molded prior to me doing them whether it was a cause a moment before or events much later in the past.
I'd like to hear others input on this subject. What's your definition and what's your basis for believing in it or not believing in it.
I want discussion, not argument or debate. If this turns into an argument or debate, then I'll hand over the thread to those who wish to do such a thing.
I'm genuinely interested in what people think about this and I'll just try to ask questions regarding peoples statements or I'll answer if people have questions about the things I say...
