Free Will #2

Some aver it's God's gift to Humanity.
Many Skeptics argue it's but a Fallacy.
Others believe on strings we dance.
Still more claim we are ruled by Chance.
Surely, all do cause confusion.
Free Will's a Necessary Illusion.
Behave thou as if it doth exist,
But allow thy doubt to yet persist.


William's Whimsical Words:

Is free will like free lunch?
