In the article The Cosmic Perspective by Neil deGrasse Tyson he examines a range of topics from human life coming from Mars to how our perspective of the universe relates to religion. In the year 2000, a new space show opened at the Hayden Planetarium called Passport to the Universe, which compared the size of people Milky Way and beyond. While a show like this might make someone feel minuscule and insignificant, Tyson says that seeing the size of the universe actually makes him feel more alive not less and gives him a sense of grandeur. I agree with his idea that looking at us as a people in comparison can actually give you a sense of grandeur. However, when I compare myself to the vastness of space, it puts events on Earth in perspective while showing how influential we can be as a people even if we are small.
Human beings always believe that what they want to do is ‘up to them,' and on this account, they take the assumption that they have free will. Perhaps that is the case, but people should investigate the situation and find a real case. Most of the intuitions may be correct, but still many of them can be incorrect. There are those who are sceptical and believe that free will is a false illusion and that it only exists in the back of people’s minds, but society should be able to distinguish feelings from beliefs in order to arrive at reality and truth.
The view of free will has been heavily debated in the field of philosophy. Whether humans possess free will or rather life is determined. With the aid of James Rachels ' article, The Debate over Free Will, it is clearly revealed that human lives are "both determined and free at the same time" (p.482, Rachels), thus, in line with the ideas of compatibilist responses. Human 's actions are based on certain situations that are causally determined by unexpected events, forced occurrence, and certain cases that causes one to outweigh the laws of cause and effect. The article also showcases instances where free will does exist. When human actions are being based on one 's emotions of the situation, desire, and simply that humans are creatures that are created to have intellectual reasoning. I argue, that Rachels’ article, provides helpful evidence on compatibilists responses that demonstrate free will and determinism actions come into play with each other.
About 2 weeks ago my thoughts towards the reality of free will ceased to exist. Everything that I had previously thought did not mean a thing; I was given a new perspective that grasped me almost instantaneously. Robert Blatchford, author of "The delusion of Free Will" provided me with a new perspective that has taken over my thinking on free will. Blatchford states, "the will is not free, and that it is ruled by heredity and environment." All it took, were those words, ...
Theology of free will and predestination is neither basic nor complex. Asking whether we have a will, seems as though it would be simple to answer. However, it is in the answer that the intricacies begin to stem. Before answers are allowed to be given, definitions must first be offered. First, what is freewill and what is predestination? Freewill, defined by David Bennett, is the ability to accept or reject Gods plan for salvation. In contrast, predestination is that God chose to save certain people.
Imagine starting your day and not having a clue of what to do, but you begin to list the different options and routes you can take to eventually get from point A to point B. In choosing from that list, there coins the term “free will”. Free will is our ability to make decisions not caused by external factors or any other impediments that can stop us to do so. Being part of the human species, we would like to believe that we have “freedom from causation” because it is part of our human nature to believe that we are independent entities and our thoughts are produced from inside of us, on our own. At the other end of the spectrum, there is determinism. Determinism explains that all of our actions are already determined by certain external causes
Free will represents an individual making choices or taking action without any constraints. While it can be argued that different aspects of determinism restrict or negate the possibility of free will, one should not assume that the presence of metaphysical, physical or scientific constraints nullify the possibility of free will. Furthermore, it should be noted that fear of reprisal may not be construed as inhibition to free will, because essentially, free will constitutes the ability of an individual to make a decision to do or not do something (Sartre, 1948).
Since the foundation of philosophy, every philosopher has had some opinion on free will in some sense, from Aristotle to Kant. Free will is defined as the agent's action to do something unimpeded, with many other factors going into it Many philosophers ask the question: Do humans really have free will? Or is consciousness a myth and we have no real choice at all? Free will has many components and is fundamental in our day to day lives and it’s time to see if it is really there or not.
As philosophy has progressed throughout the years, several issues have been resolved, but a major one remains the center of debate. Do humans have free will or are all of one’s actions predetermined to occur? Some believe that free will does exist, some believe that it does not, and others believe that free will and determinism are actually compatible. Determinism is a metaphysical thesis that claims that at any state of the universe as a whole, there is one and only one possible future state. Thus, any idea of alternative options for agents to choose among is impossible, whereas “Free Will” is a philosophical term for a particular sort of capacity that allows rational agents (also known as humans) to choose a course of action from among various alternatives. In Galen Strawson’s “Free Will” he sets out to clarify that free will is an illusion, and therefore humans cannot be held morally responsible for their actions.
Galaxies are large groups of stars, dust, and gas. Galaxies contain planets, star system and clusters, and interstellar clouds. In between these objects, there’s a sparse interstellar medium of gas, dust, and cosmic rays. There are supermassive black holes located at the center of most galaxies. Supermassive black holes are the largest type of black hole. Galaxies that have less than a billion stars are considered “small galaxies”. Galaxies are categorized according to their shape. There are three types of galaxies, which are elliptical, spiral, and irregular galaxies.
