I am not citing proof ... I am citing evidence!!!Roncooper wrote:Rom wrote
I still don't see how this proves there is no free will. I have a theory that each decision I make burns 267 calories.delta G = delta G° + RT ln ([products]/[reactants])

I am not talking about enthalpy here Ron, although it and entropy are buried in:
RT ln ([products]/[reactants])
When you have reached equilibrium (burned your energy to whatever we define as equilibrium, then delta G° = -RT ln ([products]eq/[reactants]eq) = -RT ln K
It is all the mechanisms and machinations of going from ([products]/[reactants]) to K.
There is a huge amount of chemistry buried in there; and in some way those (libertarians) that claim to have free will are denying the descriptions we have of these processes and indeed are in some way false. They may well be ... but I would argue it is incumbent on those claiming they are false provide the evidence. Don't you?
