bsh1

First and foremost, I'd like to congratulate bsh1 on making it this far in the tournament. Much as he has achieved this before, and even won before, I think it's a massive achievement with all of the fantastic competition we've had. Second, I am again honored to be debating a venerated veteran of the site. I have a lot of respect for bsh1 and his debating prowess, something I know he'll bring in spades to this debate. I hope I am up to the challenge, but most importantly, no matter how this ends...

Free will doesn't exist

RainbowDash52

Free Will-the power of acting without the constraint of necessity or fate; the ability to act at one's own discretion The debate is rather self-explanitory. As pro, I shall argue against the existence of free will. Con shall debate for its existence. Round 1 is to be acceptance and declaration of definitions. Any round forfeits will result in the forfeit of the entire debate unless the other individual pardons the other in a later round....

If you want additional rounds, please comment or send me a message. Please do not forfeit. I want to debate this not because I actually believe what I am writing, but because I am a Christian and I am struggling and I am not sure if I am a true Christian or not.
