    Me either, beyond the note. I think it's interesting though.
    Okay, because that's not where I was going, I had in mind a different kind of determinism.

    I think you're wrong if you're really that locked into a mechanistic world view. I'd say we're greater than either, though influenced by both. Whether or not we take the path of least resistance remains ours, for the most part, in my world view. So I may have the predisposition for alcoholism and my environment may predispose to skepticism, but I can choose to refrain from placing drink in my path and I may choose to follow a different view of ultimate context for decades or for life.
    Whether or not we take the path of least resistance is our decision, but that decision is much less free that it appears. To what extent is the big question.

    Regarding alcoholism: you might have the predisposition biologically, and then you might have been born into a culture and a socioeconomic situation which left you with less ability to reason and will your way through to breaking the addiction. How much of the failure to break the addiction is the fault of those who've been slammed against the wall over and over by things in life over which they have no control, while someone in a better situation stands there with the attitude of "it's simple. Just don't set the drink in front of you." Well, it's not that simple for everyone.

    I'm having to come to terms with things in my own life that are forming my destiny against my will. I wanted things to be different than they are right now, and if I had the power, I wouldn't be sitting here where I am typing what I'm typing. But the power rested elsewhere, so now I'm navigating waters that I didn't choose to be sailing.

    chrys, I looked at your posts today and can't figure out what you said that got you banned, I couldn't see one objectionable comment.

    Hope you're back soon.
