Depends on what the person asking the question means by "free". In a psychological sense, as in whether people choose their actions freely or the actions are determined by other factors, I have come to realize that free will and determinism are a false dichotomy.
I do not endorse and stay far away from organized religion, however, atheism delivered with a bitter charge can be just as fanatic and unappealing. A) I try to have as objective of a world view as possible and am always open to have previously held beliefs challenged. B) I do not view scripture/revelation. C) Evolution in fascinating!
Sometimes, but it is often impossible to tell until the ends are reached.
I focus on particular issues rather than political parties.
I am a life long student of psychology and philosophy and enjoy discussing these subjects in relation to everything else. Other perspectives help me formulate my theories.
