Why are there free will fanatics that think I'm absurd?

I believe in determinism, simply cause it makes so much sense.


it probably doesn't make sense to you because your simple brain cannot comprehend such things, and you are ignorant of why people believe in it.

  • It makes little sense, actually.

    Believing in determinism robs you of your own personality, your own choice, your own meaning. And to top if off, you act in your daily life the way the rest of us do -- with the belief that what we choose really does make a difference.

    Believing in determinism. Even the phrase itself is an oxymoron.
