Is everything determined by forces over which we have no control?
John Davison, well known to participants in the intelligent design controversy, has published a paper at Investigating Atheism, on the Prescribed Evolutionary Hypothesis. He writes,
“Our actions should be based on the ever-present awareness that human beings in their thinking, feeling, and acting are not free but are just as causally bound as the stars in their motion.”Well, there you go. If you are receptive, go there and otherwise, stay here.
“Everything is determined…by forces over which we have no control.”
- Albert Einstein
I introduce this essay with the determinism I share with Einstein, a determinism that is implicit in the Prescribed Evolutionary Hypothesis (PEH). Those who are unable to accept our shared determinism need read no further, because they will not be receptive to what I have to offer.
