This explanation applies to SO MANY THINGS that we don't attribute "free will" to. Chatbots exhibit behavior that could be explained exactly by this... and they're not even alive. They show will, [e]motion, and decision [making ability] (I'm assuming this is what you meant). They will "die" someday. So, apparently, you're forced to say that chatbots have free will?For instance. If I say that it was not your free will that caused you to post, then I would have to name the will that manipulated you.
This is nonsense. There is no manipulation by another will, because there is no "other will." (I'm over-simplifying the position for brevity).
But, you're claiming there is a supernatural soul beyond your physical body ("biological computer plus sentience"). This is what you're being challenged to demonstrate (that sentience isn't a part of the biological computer). And of course your response is that this isn't measurable or falsifiable, so it can't be demonstrated.
So now we're talking past each other.
I have no supernatural belief and if you saw a claim of such then you do not read well.
Get the quote where I make such a claim and I will help your vision.
That or just take my little test and prove your own free will.
