Dennis ftw (compelled but not coerced to write that)

Postby worldslaziestbusker » Fri Oct 14, 2011 10:28 am

Falling backward through pod-time, I am halfway through the NP from 11 Feb, 2007, the shouting match about free will. I'm with Dennis and am just up to the bit where the word coerced threw a spanner in the works. Looking forward to hearing how this ends. That later episodes I have listened to lack Jeff Dee suggest there was blood, but Dennis' presence in those episodes suggest either no charges were laid or that none stuck.
Recent developments in nuero-stuff which indicate we only give an impression of making a decision, and that our reasoning lags behind the impulse to action, indicate a need for a re-match.
Unsure if I should hit send on this, but likely I'll retro-justify it within a few seconds of having done so.

Oh my the free will episode of the NP...

If you want a decent discussion of free will/determinism from an atheistic POV you want to listen to the reasonable doubts podcast.

Episodes:
29 Free willy vs. the determinator
30 FWvD2: Judgement Day

Thanks for the links. I've not listened to RD before and am enjoying it. Their discussions on free will are good, but less funny than the three pronged murder plot proposed against Dennis.
