Using Special Relativity to Prove Determinism

http://www.journals.uchicago.edu/doi...urnalCode=phos

Basically says that since any point on a given world line is, from some point of observation, in the past for that observer, that the future is as set in stone as the past.

Sorry, Free Will. You lose again.

Do you want me to explain why this doesn't work the way you want it to, or no?

One of my bros is (actually was) into church, etc, was telling me I would go to hell if I didnt embrace 'god'. Our family was raised catholic & I do remember catholics 'claim' everyone has free will, for catholics this apparently means free to choose to embrace god or burn in hell. I said that if we truly have free will, I would choose to opt out of the system. He could not understand free will & choice included much more than those two 'lame' options. & I had to pick one or the other. I said if those were the only two options, to choose neither, I didnt have 'free will/chouce,it didnt matter what anyone chooses, and how anyone leads their lives, 'he' had to allow everyone into 'heaven'. Argueing with a turnip, , , , Just cant argue with them, , , ,

Catholic doctrine allows being 'rightous' out of fear of god is as acceptable as love of him. (they do prefer love, tho)

Maybe we need a goddess. In 70 years, I have found women in general to be more pragmatic about most everything.

Seriously, I'd love to hear what you know on this subject, but you don't offer new insights. You just piss all over what I'm saying. Even your offer to "explain why this doesn't work like I want it to" is so loaded with condescension that there's no way I want to hear what you have to say. Which is a shame, because you probably know a thing or two that would be interesting to hear.

Sensitive egos up in hurr...


But no shame; what you'd hear from me I'm certain you can learn yourself from a google search or two on this topic of special realitvity and determinism.
