    Never heard of it.
    Look it up. And don't forget why I made it. I did tell you, didn't I?

    By watching things happen before they happened

    And we hav established that this is not what happened, but if it were, then this would definitely mean we have no free-will, correct?

    or

    By watching things happen before they happened
    How could He watch them happen before they happened?

    Correct! If God caused everything to happen that happens, we would have no free will.
    How could He watch them happen before they happened?
    He can't, but if He could it would not remove our free will.
