What is “scientific determinism?”



  1. 0 Votes

    It is based upon the concepts of physics. There are universal laws that apply and act on everything in the universe. These laws insure that the way things have happened in the universe is the only way they could have happened. The path of things is determined and cannot change. It’s like the concept of fate, only for everything.

    The term scientific determinism is a philosophy that everything that happens in the world is the result of an unbroken chain of prior occurrences.  This means that the universe is governed by casual laws that result in only one possible state at any moment in time.  This is in contrast from the concept of free will and whether the choices and decisions a person can make are really “free”.  It would be impossible for a person to make a decision on a future event if they are to happen in accordance to what is already the past.
