Great info, thanks. I'm different from libertarianism in that I say:
  1. that free will is incompatible with determinism
  2. that human beings do not possess free will, and
  3. that determinism is true
So I'm a hard determinist:

And I think any discussion of free will that does not depend entirely on the state of the brain belongs right beside Astrology. I can accept compatiblism as your best current guess, but not stated as fact; for that, I'd need proof.
