1) Because God knows everything, God knows everything that will happen in the future.
2) But then God must know every action I will take.
3) If that is the case, then there is nothing that I can do differently (if I were to do something differently, then that would contradict the idea that God knew what I was going to do).
4) In other words, my every action and choice has already been settled in advance.
5) Therefore, I have no free will, not merely in a material universe of relentlessly unfolding cause-and-effect, but even if such a mechanical universe is governed by God.
6) Then what gives me pause? Why does choosing light over darkness still feel like the script that I should try to read from, speaking out my printed lines of code with the conviction, at least, of a bot?
