Do we have a free will?

I believe we have free will, but to do as we please we may have to certain things against our will. For example, I want to drive my car, but I must buy the gas. Which then leads to I must have a job to have money to buy the gas, and sadly, for many that job is unloved, and against their will. I think many people fall complacent and forget their free will!

Are you religious, agnostic, atheistic etc? What do you believe? A) How does your belief shape your world/philosophical view? B) How do you view scripture/revelation? C) What is your opinion on evolution?

I guess I am agnostic. I grew up going to catholic school, perhaps the idea of a "God" has been drilled into the back of my head now,but I am okay with not entirely knowing.The writings have denied science, and pulled people apart. To think America was once considered a taboo land for many because it was a land not stated in the bible, blows my mind and defies against exploration. I find any sort of group mentality as a threat to our free thinking. I absolutely believe in evolution, not believing so, simply doesn't make sense to me.

Do the ends justify the means? If yes, why? If not, why not?

Sometimes. Why, because it's all subjective.

What is your political orientation (far left, left, center, right, far right…libertarian, apolitical etc.)

I am apolitical, when in discussion I believe in the most logical (or what is most logical to me at the time). Every side can have a good idea, and some could have the same idea, yet execute it entirely different. I am somewhat cynical, and sometimes lose hope and interest in policy, other times I am very interested. Blah, I have mixed feelings about it all.

Have you ever stabbed somebody with a fork just because he/she didn’t agree with you?

I prefer spork.

Introduction

Thought I was too cool for school and geeked out on the interwebs, took it international this summer and just returned, since then, been craving for new conversation and people.
