I've been thinking about

I've been thinking about this question for our last two group discussions as well.  As I wrote in my paper, free-will offers people a sense of independent control on their futures.  A preconceived notion almost reduces this amount of control that free-will offers us because it doesn't allow for a changeable future. I get that pupose gives people a sense of reason and placement, but free-will lends us the ability to choose any future placement.  Free-will offers us choice, control and the ability to change. It really does allow us to evolve as human beings.
