What many people see as 'fate', can be reinterpreted as 'Genetics' and 'Environmental conditions' of a person, and in ways, fate is just a way to encapsulate that idea in layman's terms.

Humans are animals. Just like any animal, how 'successful' they become is affected by their genetic makeup and the conditions they live in. That 'success' could be defined in many ways, from 'being able to run faster' for a horse, to 'having lots of money' for a human. But if you look at it in strictly biological terms, 'success' is ultimately either increasing the probability of survival or reproduction.

Humans are exceptional creatures because they have free will. What is meant by free will? One could say free will is 'being able to go against the whim of your genetics and environment'. For example, when a person is on a diet, they use their willpower slim down. When people exercise free will, they oppose the circumstances imposed on them by their genetics and environment.

Let us use the previous example of a fat guy slimming down. His genes program his body to feel painful hunger when his belly is empty. If he were any other non-intelligent animal, he would go look for some chow, but fat guy is a human and knows better than that. Later, he becomes thin, and girls generally prefer skinny men as partners, increasing that man's probability for reproduction.

Also, if you are trying to play the 'we punish them because they ARE EVIL' card, every crime has a motive. Nobody sane would murder somebody just for fun, something pushed them over the edge. They may be less of a victim than the actual victim, but the very fact that there was something that pushed them over the edge makes them victims in a way as well.

You might've contradicted yourself on accident. You started saying every crime has a motive, but then say that nobody sane would murder another for fun. So really it's anyone who is sane has a motive for crime. This is an important distinction because sanity is still fairly vague and difficult to judge when someone is sane for acts of crime. This is also saying that anyone who doesn't have a motive must be insane, closing the ears on any counterargument.

Motive can also hazy. Is this a premediated, X commits a crime directly because of Y, or does is it including things like growing up in a bad environment but not necessarily a direct reason? The military provides training for the explicit and glorious purpose of having someone kill another person, does this also count as pushing someone over the edge into insanity or does this count as motivation? Not every soldier really cares about defending their motherland.

Last, we do have some desire to murder another for fun. Videogames, a major entertainment media, rake in oodles of money on this premise. Of course the virtual avatars aren't real people and it would take an extra push to commit a real murder. There are just two things I'd like to question; if we didn't depend on each other to survive and there were no crimes against it, would murder be mentally acceptable for us and if it takes motivation to murder another for fun then shouldn't we have some natural aversion to shell $50 for games that are all about murdering without real motivation?

>This is also saying that anyone who doesn't have a motive must be insane, closing the ears on any counterargument.
Yes. The very absence of a motive in a murder marks insanity. With 'insanity' I mean the person cannot control his or her own actions. A sane person needs a reason to kill; however, there are people who cannot control themselves and kill people without thinking about it. That is insanity. An insane person is by default a victim of insanity.

>Motive can also hazy. Is this a premediated, X commits a crime directly because of Y, or does is it including things like growing up in a bad environment but not necessarily a direct reason?

Not every soldier really cares about defending their motherland.
Anything counts as a motive, and 'poor, no childhood, etc' never leads someone to kill another person - it may only weaken a person's aversion to the idea. In the end, there is SOME trigger that pushed him over the edge - be it losing their job, having their partner divorce them or even just simple insults. Something happened that hurt the person deep enough for him or her to commit murder. They were hurt before they hurt others, even if their reaction was out of proportion or aimed towards the wrong people.

None of this disproves the existence of free will.
Mentality is not strictly chemical, regardless of your beliefs; the person who takes to the streets and murders someone because they have been 'pushed to far' has made a choice to do so somewhere along the line, it is not due to his brain's composition changing subtly due to stress.
>> No.11127

Except that post was aimed to the possible notion that criminals are not victims, not to the main topic of free will not existing, so it doesn't prove anything at that point.

For the free will not existing point, see other posts in this thread. Enough has been said about that, I think. Only people who are in denial (i.e. most of the world) can not conclude there is no such thing as free will.

Why do Japanese people keep mixing up their r's and l's when writing in English? I can understand not being able to pronounce the words correctly, but how is that carried over to the written language?

Except nobody starts playing here. We're all staring at the sandbox, waiting for the other kids to do something. And when you try to do something, at first other kids join in for a bit, but soon enough you'll be the only person still showing interest in the sandcastle you just built. Then we all go back to staring at the sandbox again.

Perhaps it's an expectation thing. Every kid coming expecting to find other kids to play with, but end up going home. Of course, I'm guilty for not playing in the sandbox too, but that's out of laziness. Though I do have a couple of structures in mind, but haven't gotten around to it yet~

At various points throughout my various games of Hearts of Iron 2 If I play that fucking Germany '36 scenario one more time... I came across the idea of changing the names of places on the world map into the names of characters from anime/video games etc..
Was just sitting there playing one day, looking around the world map during a quiet moment, and a couple just kinda popped into my head as I went past the name of a province/place somewhere.
I have a habit of coming up with weird shit like this sometimes, always happens when my mind wanders.

So anyway, to give you an idea of just what the fuck I'm talking about, here's what I have so far:

1. The Azores (Atlantic islands) = The Mizores (Mizore - Rosario + Vampire)
2. Novosibirsk (Siberia) = Novosibiribirisk (Biribiri - Raildex)
3. Mo i Rana (Norway) = Mio Rana (Mio - K-on) (Or Moe Rana)
4. Riga/Gulf of Riga (Latvia) = Rika/Gulf of Rika (Rika - Higurashi)
5. Yucatan Channel (Mexico/Cuba) = Yuka-tan Channel (Yukari Takeba - Persona 3)

Now that I think about it, that's all I have. Could swear I had more, though it might just be other pet names I have for some places I'm thinking of. Oh well.

Thanks for the read. You're a fucking idiot.

I happen to trace my lineage to the Azores, and I am extremely offended. Why would you even think such things? Geography does not work like that. You are disgracing the names of many centuries' culture and heritage. Please spare us, and our dignity, from your whims.
