My former history teacher is the reason I believe in a free will. He has dyslexia, dysgraphia, OCD, and ADD. He has trouble forming words, staying attentive, and terrible social anxiety. He took the lowest level classes in high school, he didn't even take a high school math class because of his disabilities. There was no reason for him to be successful. He didn't go to college, he worked on a fishing boat for years. Then one day he decided out of curiosity to take a philosophy course at a community college. He then went forward with his studies and enrolled full time and got his associates degree through hard work and pain. He worked so hard, he later went to Northeastern University to pursue his bachelors. Later he was certified as a teacher, and actually taught at the high school he went to. Now years later he has his doctorate and is raising a family. He wasn't supposed to do any of this, his disabilities limited him completely but he overcame that. To me he is proof that we have a free will, that anyone can overcome anything through hard work and determination. We do not live in a determined universe, the exceptions to genetic limits and conditioning prove this to us.
Also, I think there should be a third option for compatibilism.
Voting is not a legal right! It is a human right! No one should be able to tell you if you can or cannot vote based off of test results! This is fascism! We are all born equal and all have the equal right to to choose our leaders!!! Voting is a human right! This is essential to our liberty !!
Pro choice on everything! People have the right to do whatever they want to their own bodies! As long as they do not hurt anybody else there is nothing wrong with using any substance. Whether or not the substance is healthy or not it does not matter! People have the right to do whatever they want to their own bodies!
God is not homophobic. God loves all his children and everything in creation. True, the old covenant forbid homosexual sex but with the arrival of Yeshua that changed. The old covenant was fulfilled and we entered a new one based on love and compassion to all men and women. I think Yeshua was clear when he said love thy neighbor. Do not hate anybody, God doesn't hate anybody even Satan. Also, because I think someone will mention this, any quotes from the New Testament that are not Christ speaking and is Paul speaking should be ignored, as he is not God and God did not speak through him. This isn't picking and choosing verses from the Bible, but rather looking at the context and through faith if Paul was actually divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit. Something that the Messianic Jews reject.
It doesn't favor Republicans It doesn't favor Republicans if they live in Democrat states. For example I live in MA, if I vote Republican my vote is worthless. But it also works the other way around in Democrat state. It is unfair and the electoral college should be abolished! Now, not later, now! Ron Paul 2016
