Here’s Your Choice: Deterministic Scientific Materialism Or Free Will

Think about this question very carefully before jumping to your conclusion. Are we human beings products of:

A. Billions of years of strictly material processes operating in predictable patterns that determine everything about us, including what we think, how we act and the desires in our hearts and minds?

B. Or are we human beings products of billions of chance collisions of atoms crashing around in a strictly material universe that has the appearance of order but is in fact in a state of permanent chaos?

If you choose either A or B, you are aligning with the conventional wisdom of contemporary science, media and academia. The material universe is all there is to reality.

Now, ponder this question: If there is no reality beyond the material world, operating either in predictable physical patterns or in endless chance collisions, is the idea that anything can be either “True” or “False” even possible?

But don’t take my word for it. Hear what Richard Dawkins, Steven Hawking and David Berlinski, atheist/agnostic all, say about this, courtesy of the recently passed Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias, author of “Let My People Think:”
