This is the second episode that I was a guest on the Kenny and Kylie podcast. I feel like this went even better than the last conversation. We got into some deep topics. I find it interesting that Kylie was thinking about free will since last time. It has been on my mind a lot too. I don’t like free will used as an excuse for evil. There is still a philosophical debate that rages on about whether humans actually have free will. The way I see it, it depends on the definition of “free” and “will”.
Has it been decided that we “will” do something or are we “free” to change our future? I think that we have choices, but that there is such a conflict between the choices of living things that we often don’t feel very free. As Kylie mentioned in the opening of the podcast, I had mentioned unborn babies not getting to choose to live or die.
The subjects that I talked about in this episode are still related to the abortion issue, but I also try to clarify that I am against violence to other animals besides humans. If this is understood, then you will see that all other areas of my life are filtered through my pro-life or anti-violence philosophy. This raises the question of whether my actions are “free” when it is clear they have a foundation. Maybe I have already made the one choice that is most relevant.
