Can someone explain what determinism has to do with free will? If quantum mechanics is rolling dice in my brain, what does that have to do with whether *I* (whatever that means) is controlling it? Free will, if I understand it at all, is that sentient beings have some ability to make choices that are separate from their underlying physics and chemistry. Just because it's impossible to predict what a being will do next doesn't mean that being has free will.

As usual, I like Bryan Ekers approach. But that doesn't mean that there's "free will".
