In short, you can't make the ******* prediction, can you? Not even in principle. It is impossible.
1) No, I
can't at the moment make the prediction but that does not mean you should go around lying. Your thought experiments have been shown to be meaningless.
2) In principle, I could make the prediction once all
the relevant information was known. Your previous argument was a joke. You couldn't have really believed you were showing a proof that freewill exists with that scenario. "Hey tell me your prediction and I'll do something different. Oh and by the way your prediction is now wrong." How stupid are you?
Or, at least, we have no reason to believe that we live in a determined world and every reason to believe that we don't live in such a world, and that we do have free will.
Lets count the reasons we have to believe in free will:
1) The coin argument.
2)The above "tell me your prediction" scenario.
3)The scientific observation of realizable alternatives.
4)Because everyone else is doing it.
1), 2), and 3) have been shown to be without merit. All you have left is 4) which appears to be the main theme of your latest post.
Why the hell do you think that your preferred view of how you'd like the world to be should carry more weight than how the world appears to be?And that is how the world appears to be to everyone, including you and all other free will deniers.
You think a machine could not be programmed to prefer determinism. A toaster with a processor and digital display. The question you should be asking is what possible benefit would I or anyone get out the knowledge of this comparison. I do not want to be a machine whos every action is pre-determined. I want to have magical powers of a choice not bound to anything but myself and to be of special significance. But I cannot honestly come to that conclusion without denying the vast majority of evidence of world around me.
