Last year, I had Jennifer Skinner made an interesting comment in my blog when I talked about free will and destiny.
It is interesting to revisit here for you to air your opinion.
One of my favorite discussions of free will and determinism is found in a passage in Madeleine L’Engle’s classic A Wrinkle in Time. Here, one of the characters compares our lives to a sonnet. She makes the point that a sonnet is a very strict form of poetry, with exactly fourteen lines, a strict meter, and each line ending in a rigid rhyme pattern. And yet within this strict structure the poet has complete freedom. And so it is with life. “You’re given the form,” the character says. “But you have to write the sonnet yourself. What you say is completely up to you.”
Now, please tell me what you think!
