Have we (humans) the free will? (Y/N) :)
Ilmars Cirulis (2008-05-21 17:39:54)
One more option..
"I don't know"

Define "free will" without using mysticism.

"je dirais même plus"
Define "free" without using mysticism :) .. Anyway, I vote Yes !

To be or not to be
I believe in free will when I make good chess moves, fatalism when I make bad ones!?

yes, we have free will, but read on..
yes, we have free will.
Note 1: The answer I gave was pre-determined. Note 2 is also pre-determined.Of course we don't have free will.
Note 2: Of course I wrote this whole post of my own free will.

There is no free will, but i can offer will at only €100,00 for one person.
Discount for group purchases: 500 wills for €400,00 only!

When we make mistakes is comfortable to blame something else:
We are just toys in the hands of the gods
Ulrich Imbeck (2008-07-10 19:07:01)
I know the answer
Dirk Ghysens (2008-07-10 20:58:41)
I would never participate in a poll of my own free will.
Thibault de Vassal (2008-07-10 21:21:06)
In my opinion it would be interesting to discuss what you mean by "free will" first :) .. I'm not sure there's a possible clear definition to this.
Normajean Yates (2008-07-11 01:00:36)
Thibault has a point
Like the mind-body problem; discussing the free will problem has the following problem: It is not possible to pose these problems accurately in language [Noam Chomsky said this somewhere]. I (normajean) believe these are mystical/artistic/poetic questions and the answers have to be mystical/artistic/poetic also.

response to TLP's last sentence is relev
Last proposition and last sentence Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus [english translation:] Whereof cannot speak; we must remain silent. Someone's response [mentioned in a book by Karl Popper - Popper didn't remember who gave this response] - But it only then that breaking the silence is most important!
Normajean Yates (2008-07-11 01:20:57)
the answer is in Carla Bruni's new album
Well maybe so and maybe not - but rather like the album. (Comme si de rien n'était) - I liked the first two albums too :)
You can hear the enitire album at the official site www.calabruni.com
