There has been a long controversy as to whether subjectively 'free' decisions are determined by brain activity ahead of time. We found that the outcome of a decision can be encoded in brain activity of prefrontal and parietal cortex up to 10 s before it enters awareness. This delay presumably reflects the operation of a network of high-level control areas that begin to prepare an upcoming decision long before it enters awareness.

How God creates, and how our souls create, is by choosing.
Why do people not care to have the right knowledge about how choosing works?
Why does everybody care to have knowledge about some dinosaur bird which may or may not have been an evolutionary link, while knowledge about how choosing works, which they use every day of their life, is left a mess of contradictory points of view on for example the wiki on free will ?
So in a court of law scientific facts do not count, because there only legal conventions count?
So the legal convention is that choosing is real, yet it is prohibited to be taught that choosing is a scientific fact.
Evolutionists conceive of choosing as sorting out the best result, using the facts about what is good and evil as sorting criteria. Much as like natural selection, selects the fittest organisms.
Then when an evolutionist has made a decision, then the definition of choosing they use says, that they did the best. So they get an ego boost. And when they did not do the best, then the definition says they did not choose it, so it must have been an accident or a mistake or something, not their fault.
eh... you yourself said that choosing is selection a few posts previous.
So start looking in the mirror, and the odds are you will immediately find such an evolutionist.
More insanity of competing facts against opinion, to the complete destruction of opinion.
