Scientific Occasionalism

Does A Person Choose In Their Body When They Physically Act?

By Dr. Michael Bisconti

 

This article deals with science.  It does not deal with either philosophy or religion.  The question we answer here is:

 

Does a person choose in their body when they physically act?

 

Background

 

The conclusions presented in this article are based on 9 million experiments involving 10 million people of every race, ethnic background, and country in the world and conducted over a 50-year period.

 

Discussion

 

We start with the answer to the question.  The answer is:

 

Science cannot answer this question but most people believe that they do.

 

99.99% of our subjects in response to a standard questionnaire answered either that they choose in their body when they physically act or that they are uncertain that they choose in their body when they physically act.  Those who believe that they do choose far outnumber the people who are uncertain.  Furthermore, most, though not all, of the .01% of our subjects who answered that they do not choose exhibited varying degrees of mental disorder; specifically, less than 99% control of their mind (as measured by standardized tests) and/or less than 99% control of their body (as measured by standardized tests) and/or feeling no unhappiness whatsoever when thinking of hurting themself or another person (as measured by standardized tests).

 

Clarity

 

Based on all of the evidence and data, we must add the following:

 

Science does not rule out the possibility of a person not choosing in their body when they physically act.

 

Epilogue

 

We may be expanding this article over time.  Also, you may purchase Dr. Biscontiís 1000-page book titled Scientific Occasionalism, which contains the results of our entire 50-year study, in our Nexus E-Store bookstore on a date to be announced.
