But it may not be the correct position.
Yet it comes from somewhere. It cannot simply appear everywhere and out of nothing.
God is capable of telling the outcome in advance.
Just like us - it is called forecast and is based on extrapolation of previous data and analyses. The people that cannot understand the justification call it 'prophecy'. All the weather forecasts may be viewed as prophecies if one does not know how they have been calculated on the computer model.
What if God (who/what-ever it might be) disposes with better experience, better data, better view of the things, and better inference engine (higher intellectual & logical abilities) and can calculate much better than we do (if we can calculate anything serious at all). Actually you don't need to be God and to have supercomputer and super inference engine to see that we are going to Hell by destroying the renewable resources of the Earth and replacing them with man-made 'economic development' (90% of which is absolute junk). We cannot calculate the value of our biosphere and cannot assess which composition of the atmosphere is better and which is worse, and which is a one-way-ticket to Hell.
Were he to do so for each human ...
I am not sure that God (if exists) would be dealing personally with each human - this is our interpretation of the things. Suppose you are a higher ILF and want to send some message to another ILF that would be faced to self-destruction 1 By after you have become extinct for some of your descendants might be there - would you deal with anyone personally (who you don't even know) or sooner will send a general message, concerning the whole species? This personal communication with God by the prophets and by some pseudo-prophets and by any fortune-tellers and quacks have always been very suspicious.
... we would no longer be assured of free will . . .
If you are curious to know with or without God you don't have free will. You cannot leave on a planet with constrained resources inhabited by 7.3 BN people, which planet is headed to the 'Dimension X' as a result of the continuous destruction of the renewable resources, without even knowing what we are doing ... and to be free. You cannot depend on the money payments you receive each month and to be free - free from what? There is no way for this to happen. Yet I don't believe that we are predestined by some determinism and by some Will of God - this is ridiculous. What is the purpose to create something (if we have been created by Him) with a great number of degrees of freedom and predestine it with some determinism. It makes no sense to be plastered on an aqua rollba fron birth to death.
So, we are not plastered too much but we are not free as well. You cannot be free even if you possess more money than you will ever be able to spend, because everything happens - there are some other 7.3 BN people wondering 24/7 how to acquire your money, for they may be of the opinion that there is no way for a person possessing several billions for example in liquid assets by selling coal and petroleum to have earned that money by honest & hard work. If you divide 50 BN to the time the corresponding person has worked - how much is their hour rate? Nobody is free on this planet and sooner or later could be caught by the past. Believe it or not, but there is no way for such things to be foreseen by ordinary people having lived 3000 years ago and for this to happen now - all that story with God and the prophets mush have been something else.
