There is no mechanism that permits free will to exist.
Debate Rounds (4)
Pro will argue that there isn't a mechanism that can give us free will.
Con will argue that there is a mechanism that grants us free will.
Rules, the key to the debate is the mechanism and what we see in the world. Is there a mechanism, that when we compare human behavior with the mechanism, that makes sense and grants us free will? Pro will argue that no such mechanism exists. Con will argue that there is such a mechanism. I'm willing to let Con use any mechanism he wishes, including magic, if necessary. However, Con must offer some type of mechanism in order to win the debate and show how it would give us free will. Con doesn't have to prove the mechanism exist (soul as an example) he only has to show it can give us free will while matching to reality.
Free will should be understood as a person that has freedom to make any choice they wish. Free from biological, cultural or other influences. Free=untethered. Will=desire to do something. Free will=untethered desire
Round 1 acceptance
Round 2 arguments
Round 3 rebuttals and arguments
Round 4 no new points, rebuttals, supporting of previous arguments, closing remarks
for perfect balance, as they stand in contrast
0=past=(is)truth=knowledge=memory=destruction(turn my back)=free will
basically free will is memory
NoMagic forfeited this round.
