Hang in there, friend. Sometimes life is all uphill. Just keep your feet moving and your mind hoping for better days. They'll come.

God can control every action you partake in. I only believe in superficial free will. You denying this or supporting this is predetermined by nature.
If I remember the movie "Bruce Almighty" correctly, the two rules where: 1. You can't tell anyone your God. And 2. You can't mess with free will.

So for Christians, doesn't this create an H. Moebius Loop?? The same thing that drove the HAL 9000 computer mad in the movie 2001 A Space Odyssey?

You are told you have free will, but at the same time, God is all seeing, omnipresent, all powerful and there are "rules and consequences". Additionally, he has the power over the fates and outcomes of just about anything and anyone, so where's the free will??

An impossible conflict to solve. HAL wound up killing the crew in an attempt to solve the conflict...

On the contrary, doesn't it prove free will CAN be real...?

Nah, you're not a loser. You just have some crap to deal with that you didn't ask for.

There are only about 1,000 people in the country with an IQ as high as my Uncle.

Back in the day when I took my IQ test, it seemed to be argued that an IQ indicated how much eduation one has achieved throughout life vs. the ability to achieve a higher education...
