There is no libertarian free will (from this point on, when I say "free will", I mean libertarian free will unless otherwise specified).
The idea of free will is incompatible with both causality (everything having a cause) and acausality (some things having no cause).
If everything is caused, then all our thoughts and feelings are the result of prior causes, meaning every action we do, every thought we had, etc. is the inevitable result of what happened before.
If some things aren't caused, then our wills can't cause them (because then they wouldn't be uncaused). So that also means no free will.
Beyond that, we have proof that chemicals can CAUSE (i.e., MAKE) people have thoughts they wouldn't otherwise have and do things they wouldn't otherwise do. Antidepressants can make you feel better, or they can make you kill yourself. Amphetamines can cause you to compulsively masturbate, or cause you to do well in school when you were sucking.
We don't even "experience" free will. Thoughts just pop into our heads. When you're jacking off and you think of your mom all of a sudden, did you "choose" to have that thought? No--it just popped into your head. You didn't select it. It just came to you. That's how thoughts work.
There's also tons of evidence that our personalities come from our genetics and how we were raised. So that kills free will too.
Free will is incompatible with reality and we don't even experience it. It's a meme.
I think our ability to be aware of this supposed lack of free will is indicative of "something" freer than mere determinism.
I agree that most people function like robots, but I think that can be overcome.
i feel like crying

How do you cope ??
>explained to a lecturer my views on modern feminism and women
>mentioned that it was a horrific movement where bullying and harassment is accepted
>mentioned that feminists cant get in trouble for shit because theyre untouchable
>turns out shes a feminist
how fucked am i /r9k?
Maybe not very, if you explained yourself eloquently enough, specified "modern" feminism and didn't include any insults or slurs. Since you were talking to a woman I'll assume you didn't.
She may disagree with you but you'll be fine.
What did she say in response?
no i diddnt go on about it in a nasty way,. the only thing i said remotely vitriolic was that it had become an evil m ovement and disregarded real womens issues, using the examples of Kurdish feminists, middle eastern laws etc and asked why arent western feminists helping them instead theyre trying to get men belittled and hurt because they disagree with them.
Holy shit, I finally found an actual attractive asian woman. Seriously, she's on par with white women in terms of beauty, look at that face. How come guys into asian women don't like beautiful ones like this, and always prefer short flat faced girls with chipmunk cheeks?
I know, right? How the fuck are guys seriously preferring fat face korean popstars over this?

I literally just want to shut off my brain. Sometimes I program at home for fun, but if I have to spend 8 hours a day looking at source code or even fixing networks, I'll blow my fucking brains out.

Why aren't you guys going out and meeting women?
because women are inferior to me and are all dumb sluts
:) they'll never be good enough for me, so I get to stay inside and watch anime and play video games all the time.
they're so inferior. they'll never match me.
Any one else actively improving their lives? I've made huge social and physical gains in the past year. At this point I'm only using this board to gauge my progress by how much I relate to the people posting here.
Nothing matters when you have an ugly face and a small dick. You can be the most ripped, intelligent and charismatic guy on earth yet you would still be inferior to Chad. All that hard work for nothing but scraps, sometimes not even that.

I've been throwing my resume at every job alert in my area I could find and didn't get a single call back. how do you do it anon?
i went to some kind of convention where employers presented their companies and recruited new interns/offered jobs
took me 1 hour to get an internship - jobcenter pays for everything for the next 3 years
it's pretty comfy desu
I was 18 and was about to graduate highschool and i did my online application to petsmart and had my interview the day before graduation. It was a group interview and i struggled to keep my cool and spoke my best with a smile. I stayed back to buy stuff and saw the manager pass by and asked him what his name was because I had forgotten. He told me and asked me to meet him in the office after I paid. Employee looked at me and said "i think that means welcome"
I got emotional tbqh
>be almost 20 years old
>be listening to edgy fag songs
Anyone here enjoying edginess unironically and feeling bad about it? It's embarrassing, to be honest, senpai.
Post edgy things you enjoy.
Song related, what I'm listening to right now. It feels bad I relate to these lyrics so much.
Whatdaya think your classmates from school would say if they could see you now?
>my friends are all having babies
>they're so tiny and cute
>i want one to hold and take care of
>instead im sitting at home wasting my life on r9k
Hey guys, guess who finally had sex?
Its a pretty funny story
Alright, so I'm basically a failed normie. Met some normie kid in a college class a while back and he invited me to some party. I drink heavily on my own and all that shit, just never really get invited to these normie shindigs. I go to his place, and there are QT normie girls EVERYWHERE. Music blasting, Chads here and there, it was a weird experience for a loser like me.
Eventually, i start standing by a group of girls and guys all chatting.
One of them, has a boyfriend. I've had my...
