There is no truth in definition except when the definition reveals what is known to be the truth.

You cannot prove anything is true by merely defining it to be true.

My evidense that free will prevents god from predicting the future exactly is that his prophecies are mutually contradictory. This could only be if god were giving us the various possibilities taken human free will into account.

What evidense do you have that god makes exact predictions?

Take Isaiah's prediction of the Messiah for example. If you read carefully you will see that several quite different types of Messiahs were predicted. One was a great military leader, like Mohammed. Others sound more like Jesus, like where he was born or that he was Jewish.

So if god is omnifiscent, where are the exact prophecies?
