The issue of free will vs. predestination is a paradox worth solving.


FREE WILL

Free will, oh yes—
The greatest mystery,
the biggest challenge;
a most precious gift,
a most deceptive illusion.

When all is said and done,
there is but one choice—
To use it or not.
When you don’t, you are;
only then are you free.

The Prosperity Zone

Your poem made me think William -The moral consciousness of mankind points to the freedom of will The sense of moral obligation is written in every man’s heart – it is as certain as the uniformity of nature.. We know that we are bound to do the right and to avoid the wrong. We know we are also free to avoid evil. . It is not reasonable The moral consciousness of mankind points to the freedom of will. The sense of moral obligation is written in every man’s heart – it is as certain as the uniformity of nature.. We know that we are bound to do the right and to avoid the wrong. We know we are also free to avoid evil. It is not reasonable for determanists to tell is these solid colvictions are mere illusions

Good poem, William. Had a big argument with folks on this a while ago. I come down on the side your poem does.
