I'm not sure this will be fruitful, but there are Atheists in this very thread that don't believe free will exists (I'm not sure why you capitalize that). So, please provide a cite for your claim, since it seems pretty much disproven by this very thread. I didn't become an atheist so I could believe in free will -- I was never brought up in any belief system so never had any belief in the supernatural. Believe me, when I was 5 years old, I wasn't thinking about free will, its existence or not, and the implications of such.
