Do you think you can prove the existence of the external world?

Should I have to prove teh existence of the free will comperably to how one can prove the existence of the external world?
Yes, this is why I avoid philosophers. You know I mean social instincts and not moral responsibility.

And, yes, you should prove the existence of free will if you're saying that you know it exists. How do you know?

While this might sound petty, it's not meant to be: I have a hard enough time deciphering your writing when I think the syntax is correct; I have no chance if you send replies without reading them over once. I'm assuming that these are not the words that were in your head at the time. This still gives me a headache when I look at it.
