Is free will real or just an illusion?
For those of you who believe in an omniscient and omnipotent God, consider this:
How can we have free will if God, as an omniscient entity, already knows what your choices will be?
God asks you to choose between door #1 and door #2.
You choose door #2.
Since God is omniscient, he already knew you were going to choose door #2 from the day you were born.
This makes it impossible to "surprise" God, since your choice was always predicted/controlled by him. This rules out the possibility of free will.
If God is in fact omniscient, then free will can't possibly exist and everything is pre-determined.
If God is omniscient and everything is pre-determined, then we cannot be held responsible for our actions or choices. If we assume this, then there is no such thing as doing good or evil since it's all being predicted/controlled by the will of God. This also means that God can never be "disappointed" by our choices and his punishments (as described in the Bible, for example) are complete non-sense (unless he likes to toy around with us).
For free will to exist, God can't be omniscient, and consequently, can't be omnipotent either.
Or simply, God can't exist.
