***H: if God anticipates our decisions before the fact then the consequences can affect how history occurred... The nature of free will is such that natural selection and evolutionary processes are required to have a world where free will can exist to accomplish God's will. M: You don't see a contradiction here? If our actions are based on God's plan, then free will cannot exist (since it is physically impossible to make a different choice) and if free will does exist then God has no divine plan. Which is it?***

God's plan requires free will (1) therefore God layed out the detail plan for free will (2), one of the properties of this free will plan necessitated a natural world (3) which God instituted by natural evolution (4). All of this accomplishes the whole divine plan (5).

Warm regards, Harv
