Using a lack of understanding to discount prophecy has seemed to become evermore common. To analyze what you can see with your eyes and explaining what you can't see with your eyes is a faulty science, explaining apples and oranges in the reference that they cannot possibly both be fruit, because to one's understanding, they are really quite different. Free will is present at the same time as an all-KNOWING God is also present. Profecy isn't changing what would be history into something different, it's explaining what God already knows about the future. I'll give an example, when I was about 6 or 7 years old, I used to try to trick God... I used to say "I'll do this" then think that God now thought that I would than really quick, i would say "no, I won't", and think that I was tricking God into thinking that I would do something else, and now He would have to rewrite all of history because of my minor yes/no decision. When I got older and started understanding more, I realized that God knew forever that I was going to say yes, then say no really quick. He didn't base the rest of history on that decision, but He had already written history, and I was merely fulfilling it. God being all-KNOWing, not waiting to see what my decision was, already knew the next thing I would do, He doesn't need me to write history for Him.
