Free Will, Existence, and Obesity

Originally posted on anti-choice determinist:

I’ve been thinking much about existence lately and what it means to exist or not. The trouble is that if we say the mind exists, then the things contained in the mind(dreams, thoughts, beliefs) exist. The thoughts and beliefs we have are powerful enough to cause us to act in certain ways. A fine example of this is the fear of hell and how powerfully it scares people away from questioning religion.

We have much work ahead of us in reforming our language. In a recent podcast I spoke with Mitch about the existence problem. The free will question is not a question of existence. It’s a logical problem of trying to make people responsible doing for what they could not have done otherwise. When we talk about free will, choice, personal responsibility, etc. We are talking about things which are believed or felt psychologically but which cannot be observed…

Of No Free Will, Consciousness and the Paranormal Nature of our Puppeteer

Originally posted on Exogenous Agency - Our Un Free Will:

As we strengthen our understanding that free will is an illusion – that because both causality and acausality render it impossible, free will must be an illusion – questions naturally arise from this realization. If what we think, feel, and do is not fundamentally up to us, how do we describe, and what properties do we attribute to, our puppeteer? If we humans are only pragmatically responsible for our moral acts, and are more properly identified as their most proximate causes, is it accurate to hold our puppeteer morally responsible for them? And what of the nature of consciousness? If our consciousness is not truly our own, can we properly attribute this property to our puppeteer? Let’s now begin to set the premises for our exploration, and then examine the implications and conclusions they invite.

We begin by describing our Puppeteer as whatever created the Big Bang that set in…

116. Biotheism and Intentional Evolution

Originally posted on anti-choice determinist:

Chandler Klebs and George Ortega continue their talks about God and the Universe. In recent episodes, George has presented his case that God is the Universe. Chandler has a different idea than George based on the idea that life creates life through various means of reproduction. This relates to the infinite regress that Chandler talks about which relates to determinism and the idea that matter is not created nor destroyed. His theory is that there has always been some form of life in existence. Chandler views life as something that evolves intentionally as organisms learn to adapt to their environment.

115. Part 2 of No Free Will, and a Proof for God’s Existence

Originally posted on anti-choice determinist:

In part 2 of this series, George Ortega, Chandler Klebs and Jamie Soden explore a proof of the Judeo-Christian-Islamic God based on the following commonly held attributes, which are listed on the Wiki page. They are presented here in descending order of salience; 1. Creator; 2. Ruler (Governor); 3. Omnipotence; 4. Omnipresence; 5. Omniscience; 6. Omnibenevolence; 7. Eternal Nature; 8. Personal Nature; 9. Source of Moral Obligation; 10. Incorporeality/Immateriality; 11. Divine Simplicity.

We generally agreed that the first five assigned attributes and Eternal Nature are logically and/or scientifically valid, Omnivebevolence is clearly mistaken, (but we note it is not asserted in the Bible) and the four remaining ones may or not be valid, depending upon the context within which they are understood.

Since we have not arrived at a full consensus regarding the existence of these attributes as proof of God’s existence, we’ll continue to explore the theme in future…

Mini Series on God

Originally posted on anti-choice determinist:

My friend George Ortega has been very adamant that he has the true understanding of God. Because of this, recent episodes of the Free Will, Science, and Religion podcast have had more to do with the Religion part.

Below is the episode from Sunday October 18. It was wild. There will be more episodes exploring this theme later on.

114. No Free Will, and a Proof for God’s Existence

Following from our lack of free will, George Ortega presents a logical-scientific proof for the existence of the Judeo-Christian-Islamic God that is based on similarities between God’s commonly-held principle attributes and the fundamental properties of the physical universe. The argument is then explored further by co-hosts Chandler Klebs, ‘Trick Slattery, Mitch J. and Jamie Soden.

FWSR Podcast Titles and Descriptions

Originally posted on anti-choice determinist:

I’ve spent a lot of time listening to old episodes of our Free Will, Science, and Religion podcast so that I can write titles and descriptions. It takes a lot of work but I think it will be worth it because more people will listen if they are described well.

In the early days of recording the podcasts, I didn’t write titles or descriptions, so I still have to work on that for the rest of them. However, here are the titles and brief descriptions of the first 20 episodes.

1. Introduction to the podcast

This is the premier episode. George Ortega, Trick Slattery, and Chandler Klebs talk define some terms and talk about why free will is impossible and how they explain it in their books they published. There are many things from both science and religion that conflict with the belief in free will. It was this idea…
