Is free will an illusion?

Interesting video about free will (hat tip to Hot Air):

During college I watched a debate between a Calvinist and a…well…I guess you would say a “non-Calvinist.” In it the Calvinist spent a little time waxing philosophical about free will, and whether it actually exists. Ultimately, he was arguing, you cannot do anything outside your nature…so thus, you do not have free will.

Oddly enough, with that perspective God does not have free will either…since He will never do anything outside His nature.

And that’s what makes Him so great. 🙂
