Determinism is a subject I spend a large amount of time thinking about.I personally believe in determinism, but I always care about others opinion on this subject (I usually don't on most other subjects for some reason). Anyways Here's a websters definition of determinism:

theory or doctrine that acts of the will, occurrences in nature, or social or psychological phenomena are causally determined by preceding events or natural laws

I do but I voted no because I favour the other side of the free-will vs determinism debate

Also you're off topic. This thread is about Reva eating snowmen.

No, I believe more in Existentialism and the two seem to contradict each other

I still have nightmares from the last Determinism thread.

fob12 posting "It doesn't matter what you say, I make choices so I have free will" in response to every single post made in support of Determinism by anybody.

A lot of people who will vote yes will not understand the theory properly, as shown by previous threads

Only because Satre was a bit of a romantic mong when it came to the concept of freedom.

Who's up for digging this thread up tomorrow night for some ass kicking? It is too late...

He isn't even a troll, he's just stupid.

Seriously, the number of times he'd say "I understand what you're saying" then continue to make a point that clearly contained zero understanding of what you were saying



He was the same about the big bang. Damned idiot.

I think I left the Determinism thread before said troll. Thank god.

Yeah, I believe in determinism, it not something I think one believes in, or an alternative to faith, to me it's just part of the universe, somethign you accept.
