Determinism Can’t Be Rationally Affirmed

Think twice if you believe in determinism:

Dr. William Lane Craig:

“It seems to me that determinism is rationally unaffirmable. You cannot rationally affirm determinism. Because if you do what you are affirming is that you believe in determinism not because it’s true or because it’s a rational decision. You’re affirming it because you were determined to do so. It was like a tree growing a shoot or having a toothache. You were simply determined to believe in determinism. And therefore determinism is incapable of being rationally affirmed. It can only be rationally affirmed if you in fact have freedom of the will to make a rational choice in this matter.”
