Let's say you're right, and it's an egregious mistake. What do you think follows from the author of Hebrews mischaracterizing a psalm?

Aside from casting doubts on his reliability or if he's citing the septugaint it's reliability not much.

I'm a bit of a wreck right now basically realizing that due to the non-existence of the soul we're all basically a bunch of chemicals which combine for sentience; all that will happen and has is determined due to physical cause-and-effect and my inability to believe in the unbelievable and unprovable which as per Clifford is "one long sin against mankind."

Happy is the man who has not followed the counsel of the wicked, or taken the path of sinners, or joined the company of scorners. - Psalms 1:1

Since this is the philosophy thread I figured I'd post my proof that free will can't exist without the supernatural

Premise A:  All physical states must somehow be caused

Premise B: The brain and its processes are physical

Conclusion 1: The brain's mechanisms must be caused in a physical manner

Premise A: From the principle of alternate possibilities we know than an agent can't be held responsible for an action if he couldn't have chosen otherwise

Premise B : Frankfurt cases will never apply as beliefs and wants are caused by brain states which are in turn physical states (and from conclusion 1) must be caused

Premise C (From conclusion 1) If all brain states are physical and hence must be caused then we, the agents, couldn't have chosen otherwise and can't be held responsible for those choices.

Conclusion 2: If the physical world is all that exists free will is impossible.

Premise A: (From conclusion 2) since free will is impossible in a solely physical world something non-physical, an unmoved mover of sorts would have to account for it

Premise B: Since such a mover can't be physical it'd have to be supernatural.

Premise C : And that supernatural would account for free will

Conclusion 3: Free will is impossible in a solely physical world, but is possible if a spiritual world exists.

I played Chess for a number of years sometime ago. I came to find it boring after a while.

You wanna play now? The game with me and @NYrepublican ended in a stalemate, despite him only having a king and me having a queen, and bishop. Just tell me what color you want and we can go.
