Q&A How can I know if freewill exists?


You can answer this question in one of two ways:

(a) By tossing a coin.

(b) By thinking about the matter for two hours.

Which method do you prefer?

If you give an answer, you will have answered your question,  because you made a choice.

It would mean that no matter what philosophers, psychologists, religionists, atheists,  your doctors and astrologers say, at the normal everyday conscious  level we all behave as if we have freewill, except perhaps when we are starving and there is only one banana available.
