    Hey killer, I have no free will either so you can't blame me for sending you to jail for life. :)

    It is a potentially amusing topic of discussion but I don't see how any conclusion either way affects our lives. If I decide to turn left instead of right, does it matter if I did it freely or if I was coerced by evolution or God or random electrical impulses in my brain? At the end of the day, I wanted to turn left (I think), I turned left, and now I must deal with the consequences (good and bad) of turning left. I come from a family who could debate this for hours after dinner and have fun doing it but you absolutely cannot take yourself seriously during or after the debate.

    “Free will is the hardest [preconception] … to give up.”

    This is probably true. Nobody wants to think of their life path as limited by anything but their own imaginations. But life paths are limited by DNA, with some room for improvement. But only some. Chances are darn good you will end up like your parents.

    Only if you are so foolish as to never learn from another's mistakes. Parents teach you much, even sometimes negatively. Will I be a Drunk like my father? No, I learned from his mistake. Will I spend frivolously like my mother? No, I learned from her mistake. As early as 20 I was already on a path different than that of my parents. It isn't too difficult to improve your life if you choose, set plans, work toward those plans...
