    Welcome. As I have previously posted, the argument between free-will and determinism is futile. If someone States something WILL, then that is determined. It cannot be changed. It simply will. As such any decision made NOW, will come into being. I believe the future is happening at present.

    However to state something will, relies on a knowledge of the future, which can only be stated by someone from the future...

    We are reliant on the future to determine what will.

    If someone states "something will" then, simply put, they are overreaching. Any prediction has an implicit "I predict that..." in front of it.

    This is not really philosophy.

    If only I knew this nugget of wisdom I would have been set up long ago

    I just pronounced I will have a million dollars in my bank account tomorrow

    If I run out after a week I will will it again

    The only happening NOW is NOW

    If there is only "now", why when a terminator tried to kill me BEFORE I developed time-travel, did it fail? It is because I would have developed it in the future. ☺

    I know you're just trolling for fun, but let's try our best to understand the line between reality and fantasy shall we, hmm?

    You're pretending to confuse a movie with reality. Gee, the internets are perplexed.
