This Deism eBooklet #17, Deism and Free Will, opens with a shortDeism Principles Free Will synopsis of the ongoing scientific debate over determinism and free will. It then looks at free will from the perspective of an individual person. We all must use our free will in every aspect of our daily lives. It quotes the theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking who said, “I have noticed that even people who claim everything is predetermined and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.”


The position taken in this Deism eBooklet is that life, reason and free will are all gifts from our Creator/Nature’s God. It points out that free will is dependent on the gift of our innate reason, and our innate reason is dependent on our gift of life. It offers hope of greatly improving our lives and eventually the world by making reason-based and altruistic decisions in our lives that are followed up by action.
