How can this simple and short 'proof' of no free-will be refuted?

That kind of thing is why I'm not so rigidly deterministic anymore, but random factors still don't lend anything to free will.

I'm curious as to what your definition of 'free' is in that context then. We are pretty heavily constricted by physical limits and also by free will taking second seat to unconscious biological processes already. Where is the line that you draw in your definition of free?

I was using the loose definition of free will from the Bible, as this board tends to do.

I don't even consider the macro, though. Forget biology and psychology, get down to the physics.
My X-box One will be like God, in that it doesn't exist and I'll feel sorry for people who have one.
