More abstract choices you could argue are playing out a pattern ie What shall i watch on TV is just an echo of choice but we perceive it as some kind of proof of existence. in reality we are no more than plants robots if you like.
but that doesn't explain rockets to the moon but i think that is more a social consciousness or part of the economic subconscious.
i have no scientific evidence myself to back any of this up
- all choices boil down to instinctive survival patterns.
IMHO logical consistency is not a requisite for religious faith. Some might even argue that belief in spite of logic is an expression of faith. Personally, I haven't been able to make that leap, but I've come to believe that faith is orthogonal to these kinds of exercises; and as long as I am not required to interpret it, it's ok by me.
As to the original question, I was just thinking about this topic the other day because of something someone said to me. I found myself with a lot of leftover building supplies after a project, so I gave it to an acquaintance. I was helping him load the stuff, and in conversation he said, "We've been so fortunate. God has blessed us!" He attributed my kindness to his deity, connoting within his belief system that I didn't make the choice on my own to give the stuff away and to give it to him specifically. Well, I absolutely did make that choice. I debated whether it would be quickest and easiest to take it to the dump or give it to Habitat or what. The notion that I was predestined to make the choice to give it to this one specific person due to some interference by God is offensive to me, honestly. I guess this is an example of omnipotence (all powerful) instead of omniscience (knowing all) but in a lot of cases, it's a package deal.
When I was younger I was working at a restaurant in Ann Arbor and our head bartender was going to Ghana to study architecture for a summer. One of the regulars of the restaurant came in and asked where the bartender was? I said, Ghana and he said how great it was and I replied, "Yeah, he's so lucky". The guest stopped my in my tracks and said to me while looking intently at me "you know, you create your own luck in life". -That was a transformative moment for me.
Do we have free will? Hell yes, and I use it and I sure as hell don't wait for divine intervention. By the way, very nice of you to help out your acquaintance. Welcome to Hubski.
