Actually, her critics have a point. Why does she try to get people to change their minds if they aren’t free in some real sense to change their minds? It makes no sense to reason with someone whose will is wholly composed of “particles” and “equations”:
“I have come to the conclusion that a large fraction of people are cognitively unable to question the existence of free will, and there is no argument that can change their mind. ”
It’s hilarious. She misses the irony that she insists that people “change their minds” by accepting her assertion that they… can’t change their minds. Michael Egnor, “Can physics prove there is no free will?” at Mind Matters News
It really is quite funny. And physicists should stick to physics.
Also by Dr. Michael Egnor on free will:
Does “alien hand syndrome” show that we don’t really have free will?
How can mere products of nature have free will?
Does brain stimulation research challenge free will?
Is free will a dangerous myth?
