Until you point me to another species we can compare notes with, determinism is out the window for me. Gotta have that gap.

I think we humans rely far too much on our anticipation mechanisms when we base them upon the past patterns. It’s nice that we have them all written out, and they allow for some limited predictions of the future where I could see that _perhaps_ some future things are somewhat predictable – perhaps many – perhaps most.

But lacking all, some form of indeterminate has to remain, imo.

For me, certainly enough for Free Will to function.

If someone wants to jump from 0.0001% to 0, I suppose they can. But I’d rather leave the gap open. For God? Well, not the mad scientist God view certainly. But for things that happen that we can’t perceive because the mechanical limitations of our senses and brains and limitations of our species and the limitations of the things we can create? Yes.

Until you point me to another species we can compare notes with, determinism is out the window for me. Gotta have that gap.

I don’t care what people shove in that gap, they ain’t gonna seal it. Shove God in there? it’s not sealed. Shove Logic in there? Ain’t sealed. Shove certainty in there? Here’s a hammer to the head while you’re asleep. etc.
