The great debate between free will and determinism is one that cannot be answered easily although ideas and beliefs are suggested supporting each side. The idea for determinism is that everything that happens in the world is a result of something else, controlled by someone other than yourself, such as a higher power. If this idea is true then human beings would possess no true free will. This idea is very hard to grasp because of how deep the question being asked is and the issue of religion playing its part. It is crazy to think that everything that we do is predetermined and we have no control over it. It is also weird to think of freedom as an illusion. I do not believe in this claim because I feel as though I have choices of what I do with my life and I can control what I do. My religion and God guides me to make these choices. I also believe that nature does have an impact on who we are, and if determinism was so, it would rule out the possibility of nature affecting how we end up. In turn we would be puppets " dancing on the strings of our genes", having everything in life predetermined for us. So who wins the battle, free will or determinism?
