equally may be false. Our interpretations may change but the Word of God is truth (John 17:17). In fact, I am confident I have argued successfully that we would not exist if our brains were not able to make a different choice even in the face of identical circumstances and history. But both are completely deterministic in that all the processes on the inside and outside are governed by deterministic physical laws always depending of course on the extent to which low level determinism actually does prevail. Quantum events are a fundamental part of electronics, but you can bet that most proponents of free-will very specifically do not attribute consciousness and free-will to electronic systems.e. The real issues of determinism are not to do with quantum mechanics. What questions do you have about Christianity or your faith right now? For instance, tethered flies can be trained to reduce the range of the variability in their turning manoeuvres. Determinism versus indeterminism is a false dichotomy. It is thus claimed that genetic swerving is not a completely random process as some swerves are more successful as others and hence are directed by success. As a general convenience in many circumstances Id agree that this is a good model for such complex systems as humans with the degree of complex indeterminate autonomous behaviour we exhibit. So, what we are left with is that the universe appears deterministic, and much of our classical science uses that fact and brain science is classical science down to the level of molecules and the chemistry of the brain.
The New Darwinians seem to prefer the latter option ad see it as a viable religion substitute, but still a religion nevertheless. But I agree they are distinct. Professor van Inwagen defends his decision to approach the problem of evil by way of an examination of the argument from evil. Therefore, I have no problem asking the question why or any other question about Christianity. A favourite topic for abstract reasoning is the proposition God exists. The same question can be asked about unicorns and gravitons. Im quite happy to say we dont know what ultimate reality is, if there is an ultimate reality.
