As I have mentioned before, the evidence for free will is exactly the same as that for consciousness. What objective proof do you have that you are conscious?

Consciousness is not an explanation to be proved. It is a personal experience and observed phenomena to be explained.


If personal experience is not sufficient to demonstrate free will then you should also be skeptical about whether you have consciousness and are experiencing subjective feelings.


I have never ever had personal experience of libertarian free will. No one else has either, because no one has yet made two different choices for the same exact situation. Libertarian free will is a hypothetical explanation for experiences of arriving at one choice in a given situation.
