Apparently reading a treatise against the existence of free will makes people more likely to cheat, less likely to help others, and more likely to put unwanted hot sauce in someone else's food. Just speaking personally, Taco Bell gave me too much Fire sauce last week, and determinist Senate regulars, I am looking at you. Oh, yes. At you. The news isn't entirely one-sided, though. It seems that being exposed to arguments against free will also makes people less likely to be vindictive ****heads. So what do you think about this? I have identified several possible responses, which I would have made a poll out of if it were possible to put a poll at the BOTTOM of a freaking opening post. The responses are: 1) These conclusions are flawed. I myself am both a determinist and deeply moral. Plus believing in free will makes you a vindictive ****head. 2) The conclusions are valid. Believing in free will obviously makes you a morally superior person. And don't call me a vindictive ****head! 3) Believing in free will might make you nicer, but it's more important to acknowledge the truth of determinism than to be a nice guy. 4) Believing in free will clearly has practical benefits for society, so it's a good idea to believe in it. 5) I believe in free will and enjoy being a vindictive ****head. 6) I am a determinist and enjoy your extra Fire sauce. Ha ha ha ha. 7) I am @Quixotic-Sith and Compatibilism blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. 8) I am an attention whore and need to be unique. I think something else.
