1. ## Please tell me we have free will

Why? Does it bother you when I talk that way? Because I’m just exercising my “free will”. As you’d be exercising your “freedom of choice” by blocking me from the group if you wanted. That’s the best way I can think to show what I believe is evidence or at least an argument for “freedom of choice/will”. Please forgive me for any facetious remarks in my prior comments I merely needed a reaction to get my point across.
2. ## Please tell me we have free will

Ok. So you just want to argue semantics. Philosophy is completely lost on you. It’s like listening to a TED talk. You’d be an incredible subject for a case study on the Dunning-Kruger effect.
3. ## Please tell me we have free will

Cause and effect are the only thing I will say is undeniable. We had no decision or part in being conceived, none of us(as far as I can tell) signed up for this, to be born, to be called into existence. We come into this world kicking and screaming in REACTION to what we’re experiencing. We didn’t cause our conception, we’re merely the effect. Our lives are reactions to past events. Our decisions and abilities to interpret situations are based on past experience
4. ## Inertia - throwing a ball off of a moving train

Speed is a scaler measurement, quantified by distance over time. Which gives you the rate/magnitude of speed an object travels over ground. Distance over time. Like fps/feet per second or mph/ miles per hour. Velocity is a vector measurement, it’s speed with a direction. A person holding a baseball in relation to the relative velocity of the train floor has a velocity of 0mph. Regardless of the trains speed. If you throw the ball in any DIRECTION inside the train it will move at 70mph. If the ball is thrown straight out the back(opposite DIRECTION of travel) of a train at 70mph, with the trains absolute velocity of 70mph relative to a fixed point on the ground the ball will travel through the train at a velocity of 70mph until the moment it leaves, then it’s velocity relative to the fixed point is 0mph. Thrown at 70mph directly off the back of a train going 70mph from 10ft off ground level, an onlooker would see the ball drop straight down and hit the ground in 3/4 of a second.
