free will as illusion?

Nope, I don't agree with Ryan that what we know about the brain suggests that free will is an illusion. Not only do I think what we know about the brain can make sense of what "I experience when I choose to go left rather than right" but it can make sense of that being in fact a causal influence on your behavior.
