Hi everyone. I recently made this video to deal with a central issue in our human experience: choice. Many people today assert that the choices we make aren’t truly independent due to brain chemistry and previous experiences. While these things do influence our decision making, they do not pre-determine it.
Why is this issue important? Because if you never do make real, independent choices, then we are no more than brain chemistry and experience. If that is true, then we are not really responsible for our choices. And if that is true, then we have no eternal souls. So the stakes are high in discussing this question.
The video is a bit over 12 minutes, but I think you will be glad you watched the whole thing. Let me know what you think. (firstname.lastname@example.org) Mike Bogart.
