Good Lord ...

... Think You're Operating on Free Will? Think Again.

Whoever wrote this headline ought to learn to think, period. He could start by getting his terms clear. I doubt if anyone would deny that our choices are influenced by all sorts of things. Influence, however, is not determination. Nor do many people doubt that all sorts of mental processes take place unconsciously. No one who writes would deny that. Nor is it necessarily so that, in order to be free, a choice must be conscious.
