The inputs also differed each time. Similar inputs produce similar outputs. That's not a win for non-determinism.

Well you brought up that example to make some point about determinism. Here is your quote "...If you’re given the same set of cues and you output the same response, it would seem that you lack indeterminacy. Did the woman lose her free will while she was experiencing amnesia?..."

I'm glad you now admit that the inputs were different as were the responses so your example really doesn't say much about determinacy or free will.


At least for the two areas that I'm familiar with, that's a remarkably biased review.

It is not my area of expertise so I'll take your word for it. But I think the 2018 Royal Society Review is a pretty good indication that quantum effects in biological systems is an active area of scientific research that has significant proponents.
