Scientists Claim Free Will Is An Illusion: The Excuse To Be Separated From God

SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWS LINKS AND VIDEOS: Well the time has come to take away the actions of an individual. If we don’t have free will than anything goes and the concept of right or wrong is just an illusion as well. Scientists from the Center for Mind and Brain at the University of California have conducted a study that free will could be little more than the result of background noise in the brain. The article implies that fee will is an illusion, but the research doesn’t prove we don’t have free will rather it just provides a scientific hypothesis as to how it works. Let me give you an exaplme of their findings. And in an email to Live Science, Bengson said: “[Though] purposeful intentions, desires and goals drive our decisions in a linear cause-and-effect kind of way, our finding shows that our decisions are also influenced by neural noise within any given moment. “This random firing, or noise, may even be the carrier upon which our consciousness rides, in the same way that radio static is used to carry a radio station.” Sounds like a description on how Free Will works more than it being an illusion

The Bible says that mankind has the ability to make right or wrong decisions.  God implies that we are in control of our own actions. Hebrews 10:26 “For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins. The passage makes clear that we have Free Will. It does say that it’s not an illusion! The next two verses talk about Free Will 1Peter 5:2 “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight [thereof], not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind.

1 Corinthians 9:17 “For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation [of the gospel] is committed unto me.

 

This is the gift God has bestowed upon us. He has given us the opportunity to choose which path to follow. It is our Free Will to choose if we want to accept Jesus Christ or not.  He won’t force you to love him. He won’t force you to follow him. It’s all up to you. There isn’t anything any atheist can say to change that. That is the reason they argue God and Free Will. They do it to make him look as if he is uncaring and unloving. They do not want to answer to a higher authority who laid out law and rules for us to follow. That is the awesome power of God that even a self-delusion atheist’s has to deny in order to believe in their own selfish lust. Free Will is real and it’s all up to you how you want to live this life. That is the greatest gift God can truly give you.

 

INDEPENDENT.CO.UK: It has previously been suggested that our perceived ability to make autonomous choices is an illusion – and now scientists from the Center for Mind and Brain at the University of California, Davis, have found that free will may actually be the result of electrical activity in the brain.

According to the research, published in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, decisions could be predicted based on the pattern of brain activity immediately before a choice was mad READ MORE: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/free-will-could-be-the-result-of-background-noise-in-the-brain-study-suggests-9553678.html

    “If we don’t have free will than anything goes and the concept of right or wrong is just an illusion as well.”

    How do you derive this conclusion? Presbyterians don’t believe in free will (of this sort) and neither do most Buddhists, do you think these groups are without ethics?

      Well since I am new to the debate of free will I will not sit here and tell you I know all the answers. The argument that I am making is not one of ethics. Its the belief we have a choice in our daily lives. I do firmly believe that everyone has ethics. That people in a sense can be good and we get to choose the path we follow. The argument I am trying to make is that people will follow their own rules without a lawgiver who provides those rules. My hope is to show that every decision that we make is because of our choosing. Just like u chose to write me this comment. You didnt have to do that, but you chose it to see maybe what other views i might have or believe. I do hope that you come back and question anything that I have in my writing that you may or may not agree on

  2. “If we don’t have free will than anything goes”

    Isn’t that a contradiction in itself? If we don’t have free will, NOT anything goes. If there is no free will, there there is no choice and only ONE thing goes in every situation…

    “They do it to make him look as if he is uncaring and unloving.”

    No. The bible does that. But it has nothing to do with the existence of your god.

    “They do not want to answer to a higher authority who laid out law and rules for us to follow.”

    Does that really make any sense to you? Do you think that not believing in a judge will stop you from having to pay fines for speeding? That’s bullshit. Atheists don’t believe in god. End of story.

    Personally, I don’t see how free will could possibly work. But of course, I’m no scientist. Anyway, it doesn’t change anything because the question “how should I behave if there is no free will” doesn’t make any sense at all, as it implies free will. So, to me, I simply assume that there is no free will but live as if there is, simply because it seems that my brain is wired to act as if there was. The fact that I don’t understand how it’s possible and thus assume that it’s just an illusion, doesn’t change the fact it seems pretty pragmatic to “act” as if there was.

      thanks for reply Atomic Mutant and I respect your opinion on what you believe. True the Bible makes God seem unloving, but it also show his love. I can sit here and quote verse after verse about how God loves even though it looks like he doesn’t. I do stand by the the free will CHOICE. I also believe that you have set yourself to follow your own morals in a way that may reflect your point of view. Thats what i meant about free will. Yea the anything goes policy still stand. If u want to believe in God that is ur decisions. If you don’t than we make up our own moral views along the way and that is what I mean. Anything goes because that what happens when we make up our own standard of living that may not be healthy. I hope you come back again and comment even if its something we can’t both agree on

      Yes, wheather you believe there is a Judge or not, you have to pay the fine for speeding. It was your choice to speed and pay the consequenses just as it is everyone’s choice weather to sin or not. We all have to face the Judge in the end. Athiest or believer. I’m on the free choice side of things.

      • Well, at least we have the illusion that it was your choice to believe in “sin”. But even if it isn’t an illusion and you really had the choice – that doesn’t imply that “sin” exists. If it does, the problems it leads to are more a point against god than for it.
