Is free will an illusion? And does it matter? Dan Barker vs Braxton Hunter

Is free will an illusion? And does it matter? Dan Barker vs Braxton Hunter

September 4, 2020

Notable atheists like Sam Harris and Daniel Dennett claim we live in a deterministic universe and that free will is an illusion. But does losing human free will pose a problem for justice, morality and even the very act of reasoning itself?

Dan Barker of the Freedom From Religion Foundation and author of 'Free Will Explained' defends determinism. Christian guest Braxton Hunter defends libertarian free will, which he believes points to God.
