# Please put the following argument into standard argument form

Wed 2 Mar, 2011 08:04 pm
Please put the following argument into standard argument form (premise, premise, conclusion form) and then critically assess it (writing a brief essay on whether your reconstruction is sound or cogent or not [that is, whether it has good inductive or deductive logic and whether it has all true premises and why you think so]):

“If God is omniscient, then he has certain foreknowledge of the future. But if so, then God knows for certain what I will do tomorrow. Yet, I have free will only if it’s possible for me to do something other than what I will actually do tomorrow. Hence, I am not free, if God is omniscient.”

@philstudent,
Why can't you do that? It is your problem. Why not try to put it into standard form and then I (or someone else who knows a thing or two about logic) can correct you, if need be.

@philstudent,
you're damned if you do (premise), you're damned if you don't (premise)

repeat if necessary (conclusion)

That is not the appropriate answer.

Why does man claim the he has "free will", yet prays that "God's will" be done?
