Bricking It

I have my first A2 exam, in philosophy, and seeing as I want to do joint honours in it I really shouldn't be writing this blog :)

 

There's so much to learn, and while I think I've got the content down, just going on the fudgeing student room makes me feel nervous

 

It's a 3 hour exam of 4 essays, very very worried now :/

You'll be fine I'm sure. The Student Room is a bad place to go. I've been there only once and it seemed to be people trying to make others nervous by boasting about how much 'work' they've apparently done :P. They're just BSing. Best of luck :D.

Well let's make blog surfing worth your time shall we?

 

So Mr Easl, does Free Will exist and if so, how do we prove it?

 

But in all seriousness mate, best of luck. And calm down. Your end up doing worse if you rattle yourself up/

Free will can't exist, if we accept the idea of a divine omniscient presence we therefore will know the future. John Calvin wrote....

 

 

Yeh thanks :P Cheers

That is where Catholic theology, most specifically Molinist theology disagrees. Divine omniscient or knowledge of the future =/= control over human decisions. If I were to hop on the TARDIS and see you kill someone in the future, my pre-knowledge of your act by no means takes away from the fact that your Free Will caused the act to occur. To go down the Calvinist route implies a God willing to perform evil acts by acting through a human agent he will later damn to hell. Such is a morally lacking God and one that conflicts from Saint Anselm's definition of the God.

Divine providence is looked at in A2 Philosophy? In that case research open-theism, Molinism and Calvanist theories. as they are the three major stances Christian philosophy has on the matter.

Whoa are you taking philosophy at uni? The Tardis analogy has actually helped, down in my notes!

Thanks all! Exam went quite well, but the final essay I may have fudgeed up, 2 1/2 hours of writing does that to you :/
