@tumba The toot is definitely predicated on that belief.
It seems right to me that a being having perfect knowledge of the future would necessitate the absence of free will. But part of me wants to rebel against that argument. It makes me uncomfortable.
Is perfect knowledge of something all that is needed to perfectly predict future action, or is it possible for a conscious being to defy expectations despite perfect knowledge?
Almost feels like I'm asking if there's a soul.
