A while back, I had a long chat with my niece, trying to explain what I believe is the inevitability of events and the consequent contradiction of the concept of free will.  She puttered off and posted on her page/site/whatever, what was probably a two hour conversation condensed into a short explanation.  I post that here to give the benefit of brevity to anyone who is interested.

Hi Sam db. I am from your hometown, also looking for atheists around here. I sent you a Facebook message because I can't figure out communication on this site. The FB message may be in your "other" folder since we are not FB friends. Looking for people I don't have to be scared to be myself around.
