... Or so the articles I've read have been insisting.
Some seem relatively convincing (i.e. the one where all particles are in motion and if you could somehow record all of every single one of their magnitudes and directions and interactions, interpret their effects and print it in legible comprehensible form, you would effectively have a working prophecy of the future).
Others seem to be proving an entirely different point (the decision you make apparently is stimulated by activity in the brain seven seconds before the decision).
In any case, I don't know why at the moment but I feel like something's amiss. The particle one makes perfect sense, and there would obviously be no free will if everything has already be plotted out in molecular form, but the thought feels incredibly jarring in my mind. It's the same sort of feeling I get when I see a circular argument. (not saying it's a circular argument)
Thoughts on the matter? Is there any particular reason why you believe free will does/doesn't exist?
