Your belief in free will is dangerous
James Roy Poulter

At various times of experience in my life, I’ve measured the amounts of what I was taught to call “fate or free will.” For a long time, I imagined it was running at 50–50, but now (at age 60, not because of the opinion in this essay) I think free will has a much lesser percentage (although it still has enough of a percentage to make me believe — 10 seconds before I believe — that it does exist).
