Pete's Log: orgh blargh yarfEntry #1318, Mon, October 14, 2002, 08:04 EST (Random Crap)
(posted when I was 24 years old.)
I've not written much of recent. That's gonna have to change. I just don't feel inspired to write these days. I'm pretty uninspired in general.
I read yesterday that Israel and Turkey are both violating more UN security council resolutions than Iraq. Israel is violating 32, Turkey is violating 24. Iraq is only in violation of 12. I find this disturbing. I find the world in general disturbing. I find our president particularly disturbing.
Discussion questions: 1. how important is it to distinguish between predestination (or fate, if you will) and determinism? 2. Is indeterminism more of a threat to free will than determinism? 3. Would you like fries with that?

1. I do not think it is important to distinguish between them at all, it serves no purpose. We are predestined to die and determined not to. 2. In my version of reality the only threat to free will is the unconscious decision to give it up. (I don't know how that applies to your question). 3. Yes, with plenty of salt please.
