Yours is not a statistical argument.

True. I probably should not have used that with this audience who actually know the nuances of such things.

Lots of people, perhaps most, have the experience of free will that you are claiming is false.

Lots of people have felt the "spirit of the lord". I also claim that is false. Not that they felt something, just that they are not interpreting correctly unless they can provide evidence indicating they are.

Same here. I'm aware of the subjective feeling you're referring to. I experience it also. That does not mean my interpretation of it (or yours) is correct. Without objective proof we are just pontificating. Which is fine so long as we recognize that's what we're doing.
