Yes, Otherwise Adam & Eve would never have eaten the fruit of the forbidden tree if they didn't have free will
In the Judeo-Christian-Islam tradition, yes.<br />
In the eastern traditions, no. These things are part of the illusion that keeps us from being one with all things.<br />
In materialistic atheism, obviously not.
This is interesting, We have a God Vs. Nature, Nurture question.
I like this question. : ) I think the answer to all is yes.
Me too. If a computer could be supernatural like suggestion id say like save your marriage even if you or they dont want to. If a comp can do it a person can too. They should work in harmony.
Yes of course if you wish it to. I've no idea what that "own image" phrase was meant originally to mean, and I don't believe in gods anyway, but the two ideas in the question are not incompatible at all. I have friends who are Christians but their wills and thoughts are as free as anyone's.<br />
Otherwise your god would be a selfish dictator.
If god exists, perhaps. If he doesn't, perhaps.
No I have free will because I created myself out of god-stuff, as did you. The energy field that exists is not a person. If I am made of it, I am inside of god's image and one-with it at the same time.
If there is a god he/she has an evil, wicked demented sense of humor.
What about God is nature nyrture health?
I don't believe that we were created in God's image. In fact, I find the concept of a God with human qualities and emotions to be a bit unrealistic.
Nope... that's fiction
