Re: Free will is an epistemic problem

If you ACCEPT OR NOT ACCEPT a justification, then that is one thing. If, however, you ask me WHY DID I EVEN PRESENT A JUSTIFICATION here in regards to if they are not being justified to you, then I will say I am justifying it to you of course AS IN I AM PRESENTING THEM TO YOU. Whether they are just...

Re: Free will is an epistemic problem

WHAT is with the assuming again, which by the way you are so far of being right you could NOT be any MORE wrong. So much for supposedly being less wrong. But I am not wrong. Or right. You still haven't explained to me how you made the 1 out of N choice. But that has nothing whatsoever to do with wh...

Re: Free will is an epistemic problem

WHERE did I say that I was not justifying it to you? In WHAT part of what I actually wrote lead you to even being assuming that that was the case? It was the part where you insisted that you had justified it sufficiently, even though I told you that you hadn't. If you were indeed justifying it to m...

Re: Free will is an epistemic problem

Ah, so you have CHANGED the question NOW. I rephrased it. I am asking you the exact same thing. Asking why you chose 1 (out of 100) items is the same as asking you why you discarded 99. It is called contraposition. The reason I did this was to SHOW, to the observers reading this, that I have THE AB...

Re: Free will is an epistemic problem

Yes I DID and have already justified it. It is obviously just your prerogative to NOT read, NOT accept it, and/or just completely reject it all together. You, after all, did NOT even produce My 'justification' here, and then prove it incorrect. So if you weren't justifying it to me then why did you...

Re: Free will is an epistemic problem

There would be a million other choices, which I could have chosen from, to choose. NOT just three. But you didn't consider a million other options. You only considered 3. Had you considered a million options - I imagine that it would've taken you a little longer to choose. Had you considered a bill...

Re: Free will is an epistemic problem

Is this all you have got left now? Yep. It's enough. You still can't justify your choice any better than a dice ;) Yes I DID and have already justified it. It is obviously just your prerogative to NOT read, NOT accept it, and/or just completely reject it all together. You, after all, did NOT even p...

I have already explained.
It was an unsatisfactory explanation. Your "free will" is no different to a dice roll.

If that is how you make decisions in life (rolling a dice) - that is obviously your prerogative.
Is this all you have got left now?

Re: Free will is an epistemic problem

I said, WHY I made the choice I did, was because I CAN . Nothing more and nothing less is needed to explain WHY. So how is free will different to a dice? One comes from within the human body, the other is external to the human body. A dice also CAN make choices. EXACTLY like you are doing. HOW CAN ...

Re: Free will is an epistemic problem

Yes I do. Remember just a VERY short time ago when I explained to you that I made the choice I did to SHOW exactly HOW Free Will works? Indeed. You explained something that did not require explanation. You told me WHAT you've chosen. It was obvious to me and to you that you had made a choice. But t...

Re: Free will is an epistemic problem

According to you "free will" works like magic. WHERE and WHEN did I even remotely suggest any thing like that at all? Well you can't explain WHY you made the choice. You REALLY do NOT read WHAT I WRITE, do you? I said, WHY I made the choice I did, was because I CAN . Nothing more and nothing less i...

Re: Free will is an epistemic problem

What I am trying to point out is that you can't justify your choices without appealing to some prior knowledge. But 'I' CAN and 'I' just DID. Saying "I can choose" is a weasel word. There are three words there, which one is the so called "weasel" word exactly? Obviously you can choose. You just did...

Re: Free will is an epistemic problem

WHAT do you mean by "ignorant" here? WHAT do you think/believe I WANT TO be ignorant OF EXACTLY? What has this got to do with Me making a CHOICE, free willingly? You free and willingly CHOSE to reject one of the Foundational Axioms of Mathematics. The consequence of such choice is that you also hav...

Re: Free will is an epistemic problem

And, what point is that, that you were TRYING TO make about 'epistemology/knowledge'? If you recall correctly, I did ask you WHAT DID YOU MEAN regarding the exact same thing, which you obviously refused to answer. So, if you do NOT clarify what POINT you are TRYING TO make, then HOW to you expect o...

Re: Free will is an epistemic problem

No. I am simply asking you to justify your choice. I justified My choice already. How did you miss it? I will repeat it again, just for you. I CAN make whatever choice I WANT to, and that, to me, IS free will. ^^^^ This is insufficient. Obviously you can make any choice you want.You just did. Then,...
