I gather that many of us deny the religious doctrine of free will. It is one of the seemingly rational aspects of religion and it simply feels right. Its negation removes our individuality and reduces our accomplishments and personalities to some kind of Buddhism-like ego-free status and as being undeserving of recognition.
I don't intend to open discussion as to its validity. It has been dealt with here ad nauseam.
But for any of you who deny it exists, how do you approach it in day to day life?
And as for the bad actors, nazis, muslim fanatics, psychopaths, racist/sexist etc...do you condemn them in a judgmental way or contemplate their adherence and action in a philosophical way, as though we are all simply particles acted upon by external forces?
