EINSTEIN: GOD, RELIGION & SCIENCE
PART 12: EINSTEIN: FREE WILL VS. DETERMINED
In the name of God Master, of the Universe, Ruler of the earth
Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere and those that believe in the Bible as the Supreme authority of God’s Laws. For the record and the sign post many people that confess to be Christians are now during these trying times looking to man, materialism and God knows what as additional authorities on how to get to Heaven. Glory be to God our Father and to His Son our Savior Christ Jesus blessed by the Holy Spirit.
Now on the question of Free-Will. Many if not most theologians and Bible readers believe in Free-Will. Thus people are responsible for their actions. However Einstein agreed with Spinoza, that a person’s actions are just as determined as that of a billiard ball, planet, or star.
“Human beings in their thinking, feeling and acting are not free but are as causally bound as the stars in their motions.” (Declared Einstein in a statement to the Spinoza Society in 1932).
Free Will Is Freedom (12-19-08)
I remember a time when the scientific
and medical community allowed a biased
Social Science arena to influence clinical realities
regarding the drinking and addiction to alcohol
as a disease.
Thus the disease model was born as rich people were now described not as drunks, winos and addicts.
Thus the addict was relived of personal
responsibility as he had no say so or
power to control or prevent this disease.
Some even said that the disease was hereditary
and passed down from father to son.
So are all the actions of man determined?
Spinoza beguiling Einstein thought so. Wait,
what about pre-determined? Does this mean
that God has pre-determined all things in the
actions of man and the cosmos?
God all knowing knows who will come and who by free will not come. Is this then predestination?
Thus can man or the robots he attempts
to create determine and ascertain the future
and past by a case-study of human behavior?
Is it a far-fetched imagined dream of the
Scientists that we human beings are bound,
To a set motion as the celestial bodies?
Is this enslavement to a pre-set, pre-
determined destiny? Would this then be
a god of enslavement? God through
Christ has set us free.
Thus free will is freedom to kiss the
sky and embrace moon-beams in the crisp
night air and feel the refreshing rush of
wind coming through the trees. Freedom
is seen in the wind as it comes and goes.
